The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Inc magazine have all named New Orleans the best city in the USA to be an entrepreneur. Out to Lunch is the cafeteria of the new New Orleans entrepreneurial movement. You can also hear the show on WWNO 89.9FM.

We hear a lot about the link between the online world and the real world these days. Most real-world purchases begin with an online search. Even purchases as big as a house.
There’s no better example of the influence of the online world on the real world of real estate than Curbed. Curbed is technically a nationwide real estate blog. But it’s also an influencer. It reports on real estate trends, but it also helps create them. Curbed is smart, and hip.
Missy Wilkinson is the New Orleans editor of Curbed NOLA.
Liz Maute Cooke is the owner of Lionheart Prints. Lionheart sells stationery and other products from its store and printshop on Magazine Street. But this is not your grandma’s Hallmark greeting card store. Lionheart is smart, and hip.
On this edition of Out to Lunch, Peter Ricchiuti has lunch with two of the smartest and hippest people in New Orleans business.
