Odenton resident Alan Simpson and his son, Bradley, were in New Orleans as the Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII over the 49ers.
Sunday was a great day for Alan Simpson and his son, Bradley. The Odenton residents were in New Orleans for about 16 hours, but they made a visit to Bourboun Street, munched on some beignets at Café Du Monde and then watched the Baltimore Ravens edge the San Francisco 49ers to win the Super Bowl. The father and son paid more than $9,000 to Prime Sports for a chartered flight and tickets to the game; it was a special treat from Alan to Bradley, an honor roll student and junior at Arundel High. The game itself was a wild one, as the Ravens jumped out to an early lead that quieted 49ers fans in the Simpsons' section. "We were pretty sure we were going to win the game. We had 49ers fans around us and they had pretty much given up,” Alan …

Enthusiasts of New Orleans cuisine will be getting a new addition in Odenton. The Po' Boy Shop and Cafe D'Orleans has signed a lease at the Village at Odenton Station, and will fill nearly 3,600 square feet of ground floor retail space. Patricia Palumbo of Metropolitan Management Company, who helped broker the lease, said the shop is one of five tenants to sign on at the Village in the last month. All of the tenants are in various stages of building out their space or obtaining permits, Palumbo said. The restaurant would be the second of its kind to open recently in west Anne Arundel County. The New Orleans Kitchen and French Market opened in May on Telegraph Road in Severn and has been well received. Other new tenants at the Village at …

The new restaurant offers po' boy sandwiches and gumbo, along with other favorites from the Big Easy.
The New Orleans Kitchen and French Market opened quietly this week, bringing some authentic favorites from the Big Easy to Severn. The restaurant near the corner of Telegraph and Reece roads features a menu with several different kinds of po’ boys, gumbo, red beans and rice and muffulettas. There are also daily specials including fried chicken and jambalaya, plus desserts. I stopped by Wednesday afternoon and ordered a fried chicken po’ boy and some bread pudding. With jazz music in the background, I dug into the sandwich while sitting at the restaurant's window counter. It’s not my place to write a full review of the food, except that … well, I ate everything. And I’ll be back. Co-owner and chef Rusty Evers said she and her partners are …

Rusty Evers grew up in New Orleans and spent 25 years as a restaurateur and corporate caterer. Now she's bringing her classic homemade recipes to Severn.
It’s been 20 years since Rusty Evers left the Big Easy, but her drawl is still apparent. And her love of authentic, homemade New Orleans food never went away. The veteran chef has manned kitchens from Tampa to Sydney, Australia, and is now bringing her recipes to Severn. The New Orleans Kitchen and French Market is on track to open later this month on Telegraph Road, offering fresh classics including po’ boys, bread pudding and muffaletta sandwiches. “I just want it to be real,” she said inside the kitchen, which is undergoing a heavy renovation in the spot next to Carlson’s Donuts. “I’m so sick of every pseudo New Orleans restaurant … this is how it’s supposed to be.” Evers, 60, brings some credibility. She grew up in the uptown section …

It appears that a new eatery is moving in on Telegraph Road.
Could Severn be getting some helpings of crawfish, jambalaya and bread pudding? I was driving down Telegraph Road on Tuesday morning and noticed this new sign in the strip shopping center near the corner at Reece Road. It appears that a new business, New Orleans Kitchen and French Market, is moving in. There is a sign on the window saying "Great Food ... Coming Soon." The business would be located right next to Carlson's Donuts. I'm still trying to learn who will own the business and when it will open. A number listed for the business was not in service. Contractors are currently on site performing some electrical work. I'll let you know as I learn more about this new eatery. What's your favorite New Orleans food?
