Nine Roses brings its Vietnamese food to the French Quarter

Finally, the French Quarter gets Vietnamese food! It’s always been hard to believe that the old Quarter missed the emergence of our region’s favorite Asian cuisine.
Nine Roses is my personal fav of the West Bank Viet spots, so you can be sure to find me here regularly.

A few years ago, while a staff member of the public market organization Market Umbrella, I did a series of short films under the name “Go Fish”; one featured an interview with the Catholic leader of the NO East Vietnamese community, Father Vien, who gave the history of the New Orleans Catholic Vietnamese community:

Nine Roses Café is open Monday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Nine Roses Café: 620 Conti St., New Orleans, 504.324.9450

Vietnamese Cuisine in New Orleans | WYES

A great documentary on the Vietnamese in New Orleans. A well done overview of the history and the recent changes since 2005. The Viet community truly led the recovery of the entire city by showing focused entrepreneurial intent and deep community values.
