NEW ORLEANS — There’s a restaurant in the middle of New Orleans that is both old and new: Indian restaurant.
The restaurant, located in a renovated warehouse on the city’s West Bank, has been in operation for about three decades.
Its name is Mahadev, and it was built by Indian immigrant workers who were employed by the local government.
The Indian employees, who came from the neighboring city of Newburgh, were among the first immigrants to settle in the New Orleans area.
They moved in and worked the land.
Now, as the restaurant’s chef, owner and employees are trying to survive after Hurricane Katrina devastated the area, they’re trying to raise money to make their dream a reality.
The Mahadeva Group opened the restaurant in 2009 and has grown into one of the most successful Indian restaurant chains in the country.
It’s owned by Indian immigrants who are also part of the Mahadevas.
The Indian owners of the restaurant are a team of more than 60, including a team that includes several local restaurant owners.
It includes Indian-American business owners, a chef from Newburgh who grew up in the Indian-dominated area, and a lawyer and a community activist.
But there’s also a restaurant that the Mahadesas do not own.
Mahadevan says it’s a place where they’re looking for ways to survive.
And they want to stay open.
