Nola Caye is currently under construction within an existing historic structure in New Orleans' Warehouse District. The project intent was to create a restaurant that melds modern Caribbean aesthetics with classic New Orleans charm.
Many original features of the c. 1850s building are celebrated, including restored penny-tile flooring, original heavy timber columns, and restored large wood-framed windows.
CICADA coordinated with the owner, contractor, and HDLC to fit a modern kitchen and dining space into the existing historic structure. The project is anticipated to be completed in early November 2019.
