Who the heck is Pableaux Johnson?

Dude is constantly referenced as a "local New Orleans food writer" in national articles, such as in the New York Times. (here's one example, but I've seen him referenced many times previously LINK)

I've never run across anything he's really written about locally or seen any local publication with his reviews.

Anyone know anything about this guy? Dude seems like nothing more than a press-agent creation. And what's up with the stupid arse name?

Never heard of him either. But a quick google search sheds some light on the cat. Apparently he's also been published in the NY Times.

And here's a resume I found:

As a freelance journalist, his focus has been on food/travel writing, restaurant criticism and cooking-related features.

I first heard of him a few years ago. Read a couple of things he wrote. Dat's all I got.

He is a really nice guy, fantastic photographer. If you have ever read Gumbo Tales by Sara Roahen, he is the Pableaux she writes about in the chapter on red beans. As to whether or not that is his real name, I am not sure. Once you see him once, you see him everywhere.

That's one hell of a title.

I met him at Brick Store Pub in Decatur, GA a few years ago. Nice guy, but I don't know much other than just casual talk at the bar.
