Ted & Wally's will share its Benson location with Taste of New Orleans


Taste of New Orleans chef and co-owner Lee Franklin fries catfish in his food truck in 2015. Taste of New Orleans will soon have a bricks-and-mortar restaurant at the Benson location of the Ted & Wally's ice cream parlor.

A bit of Cajun flavor is headed to the Benson area.

Starting Friday, the Ted & Wally's location in Benson will begin sharing its restaurant space with Taste of New Orleans, a food truck specializing in Cajun cooking.

“We are thrilled they will be bringing authentic Cajun food to the neighborhood,” Ted & Wally's co-owner Jeannie Pittack said in a Facebook post.

The ice cream shop at 6023 Maple St. previously shared its space with Localmotive and, most recently, Big Green Q.

Even with its bricks-and-mortar location at Ted & Wally's, Taste of New Orleans will continue operating its food truck.

Taste of New Orleans was started in 2013 by Montoya Jackson and New Orleans native Lee Franklin, who moved to Omaha after Hurricane Katrina. Its menu includes fried catfish, oysters, shrimp, po' boys, tacos and vegetarian options.
