Legendary Louisiana restaurant suffers after BP spill.

By Alastair Good in the Gulf of Mexico.
Brigtsen’s in Uptown New Orleans has served the finest Cajun food for 16 years but now owner and chef Frank Brigtsen is seeing a drop in custom after the BP spill in the Gulf.
“We’re down 25% on our usual summer bookings,’ explains Brigtsen, ‘questions have been put in people’s minds about whether this seafood is safe ? Where has it come from?”

As a New Orleans native the main worry for Brigtsen, despite the fact he acknowledges he’s losing money every day he opens, is for the people who depend on him and on the Gulf fishing waters in general.

“Down here it’s a long and complex distribution chain from the sea to the food we serve and that chain has been severely weakened by this disaster.”

It’s a worry that has taken it’s toll on Brigtsen physically and emotionally, he admits to months of not sleeping properly and on the night I visit him he’s just returned from a visit to the chiropractor.

His restaurant will survive, it’s reputation is too good for it to fold, but even Brigtsen wonders how many more disasters the Louisiana people can cope with.
