Milkfish has brought Filipino cuisine to New Orleans with Pop-ups for almost 2 years and now we are ready to open our own doors!

Milkfish is ready to open our doors full time in central New Orleans.  We have our staff and business plan in place and have been working with a developer to secure our desired location.  We have yet to raise all of the funds we need to secure this location.  With the success of this Kickstarter project we will have the initial funds to begin building our restaurant on the ground floor of the Gertler Building on Carondolet Street in New Orleans. The money will be used to secure all permits & licensing.  All equipment needed in the kitchen including a Hood system, Grease traps, Stoves and Ovens, Refridgeration and Freezers, Prep tables and all small equipment needed for a full service kitchen. For the dining room we will need to furnish fixtures, painting, furniture and decor.  We will also need all small wares and some carpenter work.  We plan to locally source out and recycle as much as we can for our furnishings. As we build, we will continue to offer our food on a pop-up basis to save even more to help our endeavors!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Opening a restaurant is an enormous challenge. With the help of our experienced friends and colleagues throughout the New Orleans service industry we have comprised a comprehensive business plan which allows for an understanding of every facet of this process. With the acquisition of these initial funds we will be prepared to begin the process of building the restaurant and be poised to complete our fundraising in upcoming months. We have secured a location in the Central Business Disctrict of New Orleans. The building is the old Gertler building on Carondolet street. We are in talks right now to sign the lease but our waiting to secure these funds in order to go forward. The more we are able to raise with this project the sooner we will be prepared to open.
