If you know anything about people from New Orleans, they live to have a good time. So it’s no wonder Tim and Tanya Dubuclet pulled out all the stops for the soft opening of the second location of their famed restaurant, Neyow’s Creole Café, located at 6356 Richmond Ave. in Houston.
A brass band, New Orleans Indians and the Zulu Tramps kicked off the party with a Second Line in the parking lot. Dozens of guests danced alongside the Debuclets, and even Mayor Sylvester Turner joined in the fun. At-Large City Councilman Mike Knox, Department of Neighborhoods Director TaKasha Francis and a host of influencers from Houston and New Orleans were also in attendance. With handkerchiefs (and cell phones) in the air, the crowd moved through the lot to the front of the building for the ribbon cutting.
Once inside, guests were treated to a variety of food samples including red beans and rice, gumbo, fried chicken, fried fish, dressing, pasta and the very popular carrot souffle. Not to be outdone, the bar stayed busy with patrons placing plenty of orders with the mixologists, especially for Neyow’s most popular drink, the Bow Wow fruit punch.
The general public can check out Neyow’s Creole Café during its grand opening, Friday, December 7. Happy hour will be from 3:30 p.m. to 7p.m., where there will be food and drink specials throughout the evening.
