Great Gumbo, Zero Calories, Good Karma

With tongue firmly planted in cheek, online charity Web site Gulf Café ( offers virtual diners the opportunity to order the very best menu items Louisiana has to offer - but instead of food, your check total buys you the peace of mind that goes with a cash donation to people hit hard by the Gulf oil-spill disaster.

Using the tagline “virtually the best seafood in the world,” the online café serves up “pretend” appetizers, entrees, desserts and beverages. Visitors to the virtual restaurant can “order” Gulf-specific
menu items including hush puppies, shrimp gumbo, fried crab claws, oyster po’ boy, crawfish boil, bananas foster, and the famous New Orleans’ hurricane, with 100 percent of the proceeds being donated to non-profit organizations in the Gulf region.

here to “reserve” your table and sort-of order up some of the best seafood the Gulf of Mexico has to offer, all while helping Louisiana Gulf Coast residents recover from the oil spill.
