Brocato’s of New Orleans Honors St. Joseph’s Day

Brocato’s on Carrolton Ave. is open to walk up traffic during the Corona Virus distancing.

On Monday March 16th Arthur Brocato and staff came in on their normally closed day to build their annual St. Joseph’s Altar. Just as they were finishing, the city announced restaurants and bars would be closed to inside dining.

Arthur made a decision to move the altar from the back of the gelato parlor to the front window of the store.
