The Steamboat Natchez is stepping up its style with the addition of a jazz brunch to all of its Sunday cruises. Operating since 1975 and serving up a host of wonderful meals to the smooth sounds of jazz, the Sunday jazz brunches are a natural addition to the classy steam boat and a welcome change for tourists and local fans alike.
A floating New Orleans icon and an iconic hero of the city’s post-Katrina recovery both made food news this week. The Steamboat Natchez announced that it will add a jazz brunch to its Sunday cruises starting June 30; and Wilbert “Mr. Chill” Wilson opened a corner bakery and hot dog joint in the Broadmoor neighborhood.
In 2005, Williams became a symbol of the city’s will to survive, opening an outdoor barbershop after his business was submerged in the flooding that followed federal levee failures. Eventually, he re-opened his barbershop in a new permanent location, but he always wanted to do something with the corner business that flooded.
