New Vegan Restaurant Opens in New Orleans

Superfood Bar will bring mostly raw food to NOLA.

Diners in the Big Easy will now have an easier time finding healthy options. In a town revered for its Cajun and Creole cuisine, kombucha and green smoothies might seem out of place, but that’s a benefit, according to owner Joseph Stone. He tells The Times Picayune that the well-prepared vegetables found in his smoothies and salads will offer some balance to the typically heavy fare found in New Orleans. A former sufferer of arthritis and fibromyalgia, Stone was able to reverse his own health by adopting a more plant-based diet, and hopes to be able to offer fellow Southerners healthy fare. Along with chef Aime Havens, Stone plans to expand Superfood Bar from its current incarnation as a walk-up counter into a sit-down café in the near future.
