Meet the Chef
At about age nine, I began to work with my dad at the hotel he ran on Tulane Avenue. I ran floors for room service trays, shampooed carpets in the banquet rooms, cleaned the bar on Saturday, and washed dishes on the three door Hobart. I always dreamed about cooking for other people and through my years I have cooked in hotels, restaurants and private clubs. Collaboration with my beautiful wife, Mary Katherine, my dream has come true.
We have brought the best of Nawlins comfort food to you here in the midlands! I love both places and wanted to bring my passion to your palette, nothing crazy, nothing fancy, just good po-boys and Luzianna staples for you to enjoy.
Please come see and support our family business and you will NOT be disappointed! Thank you and see you soon! -Thomas

The Love of Art and Food Combine
Art is Mary Katherine's passion – everything from painting, to jewelry, to home décor. Which is one of the reasons she and her husband Thomas (an executive chef) were drawn to a unique fusion of design and food.
How it all began...
Mary Katherine is originally from Virginia and graduated from Longwood University in 1993. She taught elementary and middle school art before becoming a stay at home Mom. Through the years she has continued to paint and do other crafts and loves to host art drop-ins from time to time.
Thomas grew up in New Orleans where he worked from a young age with his father in various restaurants in Metairie. After relocating to South Carolina in the early 1990’s, he worked at various restaurants and was Executive Chef at The Faculty House as well as The Palmetto Club.
Mary Katherine and Thomas were married on May 15th 2020. The two were blessed with creative minds in two different arts, one being visual and the other culinary. After deciding to combine their talents, Luzianna Purchase was born in late 2020. The business continues to grow and is gaining many amazing customers. They live in Chapin, SC and are the proud parents of five wonderful children.
