New Orleans Will Get a New Vegetarian Restaurant

Big Easy residents will be able to enjoy cruelty-free fare at Good Karma Prasad Café.

Slated to open its doors in late summer, Good Karma Prasad Café is the latest meatless eatery to announce its opening in The Crescent City. Business partners Michelle Baker and Sughosh Berg are teaming up to start Berg’s third vegetarian café; Berg’s family runs Good Karma Medley, a Mississippi restaurant with two locations.
