The Camellia Grill

Post-It Note resurrection

T'aint exactly news, but the Camellia Grill which was closed for 20 months after the federal levee failures (don't call it "Katrina"), reopened for business on April 20th.

What is the Camellia Grill? An Uptown neighborhood favorite. Great breakfasts, great sandwiches, late hours.

The owners threw in the towel after the levee failures even though the building was not damaged. A customer campaign, by Post-It notes, encouraged new owners to step in and re-open.

Here's a sweet, home-made video that tells the story beautifully.
