Event Details

St. Joseph’s Day altars began as a custom brought to New Orleans by Sicilian immigrants honoring St. Joseph, who is said to have ended the great famine in their country. As a third-generation Sicilian, this cultural tradition plays an important role in Chef Nick’s, the chef of Avo, focus and philosophy in preserving his heritage and melding it with his New Orleans roots. At Avo, he will be paying tribute with a full display of food, wine, and flowers created with the help of his family.
