The Rebirth of Freret Street
" "There's a sense of camaraderie," Apperson says. "Everyone on this street knows each other, and they help you. They say, 'you need a box of napkins, a roll of quarters? We're looking out for you.' There's a good mix of concepts here and that's drawing people in, helping all of us."
More help of this sort could arrive as early as this week, when Adam Biderman hopes to open the Company Burger on Freret and begin serving hand-crafted burgers. This week is also the target date for Ben Sherman and Steve Watson, co-owners of Uptown's King Pin Bar, to open their Chicago-style deep dish pizza restaurant, the Midway, on the 4700 block of Freret."
