Building The Chinn Family Dynasty

In every thing we do, GOD is first and foremost. This journey has not been an easy one by far; still we would not change it for nothing. To reflect on where we started to where we are now is truly beautiful to see the story unfold. This gift is truly spiritual and from above because this is not something we can do ourselves. Love is the secret ingredient: GOD is in every stir, every well-seasoned cuisine and GOD is enabling us to build according to his plan. This Dynasty is ordained!!

Our Story

We've loved every minute of our journey

An Idea Is Born

How many times have you ever heard, "Customer service just don't exist anymore?"

We looked forward to our date nights then and still do, but on our countless dates we noticed that we were often forgot about in service by our waiter/waitress. So we made an agreement over a decade ago that if we ever fully pursued a business we would cater to every detail of our guests needs and would make their experience unforgettable. Then we asked ourselves right then and there. "Is it possible and can we really do it? Well...we should ask you, How are we doing?

Becoming Café Dat Taste of New Orleans

To say that we love cooking is an understatement. We love the joy it brings because we truly desire to see the smiles it puts on our guest’s face. It’s like we are in a race to win your hearts; all while realizing that in any moment it could be our last, we won’t leave this Earth knowing that we didn't get the chance to do something that we love doing AND that completes us as a unit.

My husband and I had a conversation years ago, back in 2009, about what it is we wanted to do with our future. Whether it was within the next few months or years to come and ironically our stories matched. It was as if it was the missing piece to our own individual puzzles that we needed each other to complete. We gave our dreams to God and remained patient and vigilant that through hard work, constant prayer, and our faith that we would accomplish what we put our minds to believing we could achieve.

So when we spoke about creating this one of a kind place...a simple space where anybody would be greeted a certain way, treated a different way that the norm and fed on a level that made them feel like royalty if may have seemed crazy to someone that didn’t have that “mustard seed” faith. Our eyes were wide open then and they are still. We never looked down even when it seemed like our light was dimmed and situations were next to impossible...We never gave up and never stopped looking up to where our help comes from.

We are Café Dat Taste of New Orleans. Privately owned. Family oriented. God fearing and creating our own lane of what it is to truly exemplify great guest appreciation and building a legacy with our girls in more ways than one.

The Owner/ Sous Chef 

Kiara S. Chinn

Cooking and catering is more than a craft, art or is a passion because wonderful things happen when you have the opportunity to dine and taste that love that is flavored in our cruises. We love creating happy moments and memories with our audiences and our dining experiences and that's something that can't be taught and believe me there are enough degrees and certifications between my husband and I to know that. Cooking is a blessing and GOD is the center of our vision. There will never be a dish made, whether is steak or gumbo, without GOD stirring in the pot FIRST!!

Cafè Dat Taste of New Orleans

Meet "Carlito the Crawfish"

"Carlito" is more than the name of a character from the movie "Scarface." In reference to Cafe Dat Taste of New Orleans; it's the name of our Crawfish logo.

The similarities include the small size of the little creature is also the small size of our restaurant. Its small size packs so much flavor especially when it is prepared the correct way. 

So we decided to put the two together and came up with the unique logo to represent our restaurant by picture.      

FUNNY FACT: One day when we were eating our seafood dinner, which include crawfish, our oldest daughter said, “Aww look at this cute little Carlito. He is so cute; I don’t want to eat him.”

Well we did!!!

Hence forth, Carlito the Crawfish was born and became a trademark to our family’s cafe.
