Where there’s smoke…there’s Central City BBQ. In 2016, Aaron Burgau, Marc Bonifacic and partners restored a building in historic “Central City” New Orleans. There they combined their passion for smoke, fire, and whole hog barbecue. With two fifteen foot big screen tv’s and our inviting outdoor patio, Central City BBQ is a great place to come eat, drink and hangout.

Central City BBQ has named Cruse as its new pit master, putting him in charge of the smokers and kitchen at the city’s largest barbecue restaurant. “My goal is to improve what we do here first and then introduce some of my own tweaks,” said Cruse. “There’s a lot that we can do that you just don’t see anyone around here doing.” Cruse doesn’t have much background in restaurants. The 41-year-old Arabi native has worked in sales and project management. His barbecue bona fides, however, are lengthy...
