“You may remember when Archbishop Gregory Aymond confirmed that Alligator qualified as seafood for Lenten Obligations in a much publicized letter to a local parishioner. Lenny Minutillo, Jr., took the message to heart, and that’s why on Friday’s during Lent he frequently rolls out this alligator chili ($13.99 dinner/$10.99 lunch with a drink and salad or soup) at his engaging pizzeria and neighborhood café in Harahan. The alligator meat is finely ground, though it still carries its distinctive flavor and texture through a very assertive spice blend.  In the style of chili mac, it’s ladled over elbow macaroni which cuts the heat while raw onions add crunch. Minutillo doesn’t serve it every Friday, but when it appears it’s a memorable -- and compliant -- addition to the specials list.”

American Culinary Federation of New Orleans has awarded both Chef Lenny Minutillo as one of 14 Best Chefs of 2015 and Chef Laura Minutillo, CPC one of 7 Best Pastry Chefs of 2015.
