Empanola opens second location in Uptown
Empanola’s success is a family affair. It just opened a second restaurant in Uptown, and while it’s co-owned by chef Marcelo Garcia, his wife Jimena Urrutia and her brother Javier Urrutia, it’s not unusual to find one of the couple’s daughters behind the counter.
Empanola is now open for lunch in White Star Market, here are our favorites
White Star Market’s newest stall is serving up some scrumptious empanadas, and we couldn’t be more excited. Empanadas are little sandwich pockets, available in a variety of fillings. The menu rotates, so you won’t always see the same flavors available.
Empanola is bringing its innovative empanadas to Magazine Street
Empanola, the spot that serves up traditional and New Orleans-inspired empanadas, is opening a new location at 3109 Magazine St. on Aug. 1. The site is the former location of novelty and gift shop Bootsy’s Fun Rock’n, which closed last summer.
Empanola Biloxi, a Coffee Shop With Flar
Empanola Biloxi is one of the Mississippi Gulf Coast’s newest restaurants and it has a concept like no other. It’s a very cool combination of coffee shop, café, and specialty eatery. It’s only been open a few weeks (the original location is on Magazine Street in New Orleans) and it has that crisp, new feel, enhanced with a black ceiling, tan wood floors, and walls that are blue with lots of bright graphics (I really liked the head of garlic!).
