AC360° Senior Producer
Chef John Besh grew up in Louisiana, stayed in New Orleans through Hurricane Katrina, endured the BP oil spill and today owns six restaurants in that city.
He told us today that the city came back stronger after Katrina, and while it’s not something you wish would happen, he said it made the town tougher.
While stirring a pot of crabs in the kitchen of his restaurant August, he told us that together, everyone resurrected the city.
