OUR STORY
EMPANOLA NEWS

Empanola new location at 3109 Magazine st

Empanola’s success is a family affair. It just opened a second restaurant in Uptown, and while it’s co-owned by chef Marcelo Garcia, his wife Jimena Urrutia and her brother Javier Urrutia, it’s not unusual to find one of the couple’s daughters behind the counter.

These empanadas taste like New Orleans

My husband and I have the privilege to be living for a couple of years now in Nola. Coming from Chile and Argentina respectively.

Inspired by New Orleans stimulating cuisine and our love for cooking, we dreamed of bringing our delicious south American empanadas to town.
