Embers, name change, corner of Bourbon and St. Peter Sts.

Now a bistro and sports bar. Looks exactly same from out side. Buyer beware. Food has always been mediocre. Balcony only plus but you have to buy meal to sit on balcony. Will have to see over next few weeks if anything has changed.

Still same owner and menu. Some legal matter caused the name change.

I read about the legality of using the name of Camellia Grill last year. I guess there was gray area with the purchase and the old owner said he owned the name and only sold the establishment and the new owner said he owned both and then opened the second location with the name as well. My understanding was that the name conflict also applies to the Uptown location, so it'll be interesting to see if that name was ordered to be changes as well.

I also found this from last year, but I swear the menu and sign said Camellia Grill when I ate there a few weeks ago! Maybe they changed it back???

I have always wondered how The Embers stayed in business. Looks like they decided a make-over was necessary, as the "coupons" were just not doing it for them.

Embers now called "Retrouvailles Bistro"! Still have to but drinks and appetizers or meal to sit on balcony. New bar area as you walk in looks very nice but with same owner suspect just cosmetic makeover.
