NEW ORLEANS, June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- It's safe to say that the New Orleans fishing industry is still reeling from the ravaging effects of Hurricane Katrina. And now, the recent oil spill in the gulf is threatening to devastate it even further. In an effort to battle against this disaster, a fleet of private fisherman and first responders are hitting the shores to do what they can to clean up the mess.

Moved by their dedication, Chuck Subra, Executive Chef at La Cote Brasserie restaurant inside the Renaissance New Orleans Arts Hotel joined forces with other area chefs and prepared some of the signature dishes from his New Orleans seafood restaurant to bring some joy to those working so hard to help their community.

When not delighting these workers with his famous duck and andouile gumbo, Chef Subra serves guests at his New Orleans boutique hotel restaurant. Drawing from the diverse cultures in the region, Chef Subra blends his Southern Louisiana cuisine with a French influence for a celebrated flavor that's known for its unique flair.
