Antoine's Flavor of New Orleans was named the Minority-Owned Business of the year by the Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce. Brian Antoine and his wife moved to Valdosta from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina damaged their home and made it impossible to return to work.
Their restaurant has been open 16-months. It's almost always filled with customers craving authentic Cajun food.
"I didn't think I had a chance, being a new restaurant, but seeing the diversity of my customers...I really love it," says Antoine. "We've got a great lunch crowd, a great dinner crowd. The customers really have a good time. I try to get out and meet every customer that comes in and really thank them for coming here."
While many patrons urge Antoine to expand, he says he prefers the restaurant's intimate size that allows him to interact with his customers.
