  2. Thanks for the listing. However I wish that the list would’ve been arranged so I could print it in less than 6 pages. Is The Country Preacher on Madison Road a black owned restaurant? Is the New Orleans style restaurant at De Sales Corner still open? These might be a welcomed addition to your list is the answer is “yes”. Thank you for your informative pages.
