The commemoration of All Saints Day is a rich tradition in New Orleans. As the city prepares for this year’s event, I thought it noteworthy to recognize that the historical Holt Cemetery, adjacent to Delgado’s City Park Campus, has implemented several very nice improvements. New street signs, repaved roads, lamp posts, an American flag, lawn maintenance, renovated office, and a lovely new entrance gate adorn this resting place of many New Orleans residents as well as some well-known folks, too, like jazz legend Buddy Bolden. You can read more about Holt Cemetery in one of our past blog posts here.

I recently discovered one of the best-kept secrets on the corner of Canal and Rocheblave Streets—Legends Food & Spirits—and I just had to share my experience there with the Delgado community and beyond! Don’t buy fast food when you can have a hot, home-cooked meal for about the same cost. Legends has daily specials, burgers and fries, sandwiches, and sides with prices ranging between $5 – $10.
I was so excited when I recently had the Tuesday special—smothered okra with rice, corn, chicken wings, and a side salad—all for around $7! Not only was it an awesome deal, it was also DELICIOUS. I had the fried catfish on another lunch visit, and it was perfect!
Legends will deliver your meal if you live nearby, holds numerous events, has an active night life, and also rents the restaurant/bar/patio space for events such as parties, reunions, receptions, weddings, and more. Check out Legends!
