If you’re looking to celebrate on New Year’s Eve, without travelling too far from home, one of the best spots in town might be as close as Slauson and Overhill. This is the location of the famous La-Louisanne Cajun Creole Restaurant, which has been serving Los Angeles, Inglewood and surrounding areas for nearly 30 years.
La-Louisanne brought New Orleans to Los Angeles in 1989. Restauranteur, Edison Wheeler owned and operated a restaurant and night club in New Orleans until he was drafted into the army. He served in Fort Lewis, Washington and was honorably discharged in 1962.
A staunch supporter of black business, Wheeler said black entrepreneurs have an obligation to give back to their community by offering quality goods and services at competitive prices.
His upcoming New Year’s Eve party is a prime example of this philosophy. There aren’t many places where a couple can go to on New Year’s Eve and get a meal for $75. It’s not unheard of to pay $150 or more! Singles can get a nice meal for just $45. And with the mouth-watering and stick-to-your-ribs entrees served at La-Louisanne, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth.
The La-Louisanne New Year’s Eve Extravaganza will feature a Southern Buffet and entertainment by Garland Green. It will go on from 8pm until 2am. The cover charge is $20 is you don’t plan on eating.
Again, where can you go out on New Year’s Eve and enjoy yourself for so little? The restaurant has special deals on Cajun Creole cuisine and cocktails throughout the week. Happy hours is every night, and on Friday, you get free jambalaya and chicken. Stop by on a Monday or Thursday and order the $1.00 special for red beans and rice with chicken.
If eating more wholesome, nourishing food and saving money are among your New Year resolutions, you might as well get started now. La-Louisanne is open daily from 11:30am until 2:00am. Check out the menu at www.lalouisannela.com on the website or call 323-293-4073 for New Years Eve reservations.
