Chef Wilfredo Avelar and Robin Barnes

Chef Wilfredo Avelar of Mawi NOLA and New Orleans Songbird Robin Barnes stop in to talk about their new musical and gastronomical ventures. The talented chef started as a meat carver in the Emeril’s family restaurants, and eventually made his way to Chef de Cuisine at Meril! Will is known for his laid back family vibe, making every patron feel like they are eating in their own kitchen. It’s no surprise that he decided to join his dad in the family business of making the freshest and most delicious tortillas in the Big Easy! Robin Barnes is a jazz singer and fitness leader from New Orleans, LA, best known for her Jazz EP "Songbird Sessions" released in 2016. Barnes was also featured on Forbes 40 under 40 in 2014 for her workout wear. Listen in as we talk all things food and music in NOLA!
