Donald Link Nabs IACP Cookbook Award; Freret Fest Returns on Saturday

Plus, Dat Dog gets robbed by a guy in a gorilla mask.


NOLA— Congrats are in order for chef Donald Link, who just nabbed a very prestigious IACP 'American Cookbook Award' for his second cookbook Down South.  [, IACP]

FRERET— Dat Dog was robbed at gunpoint by a man in a gorilla mask on April 1. This is not an April Fools joke. You may recall, the restaurant was robbed at gunpoint which resulted in a manager being shot in the shoulder back in 2012 as well. Those with info can contact Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.  []

FRERET— The Advocate notes that this Saturday, April 4, is Freret Fest, a chance to discover the strip's incredible restaurants including Ancora, Company Burger, Mint Modern, Wayfare and many more. [Advocate]
