Time to give thanks

Hard to believe that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. There are so many things to be thankful for this year. We've been providing the downtown Shreveport area great cuisine for a year now! This year we want you to take a break from all of that cooking and order a holiday pie or cake! Today is the last day before Thanksgiving to order your treat. It's not to late to order for Christmas though.

For our special this week we will be doing a pulled pork roast po-poy with horseradish-mayo, lettuce, and tomatoe. If you want something lighter then try our wild mushroom and veal soup. Come in and enjoy!

we are here and you should be

have you ever believed in something so much that it makes you crazy when no one else seems to recognize it? well that is what we do here at artspace. we believe in what we produce. from food to exhibit, we love and create the best. my grandmother( step grandmother by marriage) is 94 years old. she should have been chronicled in our exhibit except that it never occurred to me that she was that old because she is so vibrant and clear. i stopped, and i am busy, to listen to her this week and i was amazed.

stop by this week and hear what our elders have to say. it will touch your life. have a reuben or the new roast beef sandwich. like your in depth inquiry into the elders in your life, you will not be disappointed.

oh yeah order your holiday pie today!!!

Need I mention we have the best soup of all?! We have a corn and potato chowder that is divine tonight for the opening of Triumph over Tragedy. If you haven't made it here yet, then you should get in your vehicle of choice and join us!
We're hoping to have our oven roasted tomato soup, the great chowder, some tasty desserts and maybe couchon du lait po boys.(yes I needed help to spell that) In Cajun that's pulled pork boys and girls. :)
If the thought of mouth watering melt in your mouth pulled pork doesn't do it for you we also have our normal menu as well. We are currently working on a new menu also. We're keeping most of your favorites and adding a roast beef auju (sorry about my spelling.)
So when Monday rolls around we hope to see you here at the cafe@artspace!

Chilli-Lime Chicken Wrap

That's what we're putting on the plate this week! This is a delicious wrap with warm chicken, black beans, diced tomatoes, chedder cheese, and monterey jack. Topped with zesty lime salsa! It's sure to delight your senses!
For everyone who kept checking in for the blog last week, I appologize. The weather just got the best of us and no one was able to update. Just in case anyone was wondering we made it though the storms just fine. Our building was just fine, the church down the street however had some extensive damage. And for the man who got caught up in it we are wishing him a speedy recovery!
We are currently out of dessert for the start of the week but I will let you know as soon as I get some!
