Ti Adelaide Martin

Restaurateur, entrepreneur, and author Ti Adelaide Martin is an outspoken champion for true hospitality in business, for her city, and for the many causes she devotes herself to. Most recently, Martin helped co-found and is chair of the board of NOCHI, a 93,000 square-foot culinary and hospitality institute. From co-founder in the 90s of the “New Orleans – Proud to Call It Home” campaign, to the driving force behind the new billion-dollar airport terminal as finance chair and 12-year member of the Aviation board, Martin’s energy appears boundless. Martin credits her mother Ella Brennan with igniting that passion. A lifelong dream came true when Ti returned the favor by releasing a book with her mother, Miss Ella of Commander’s Palace: I Don’t Want a Restaurant Where a Jazz Band Can’t Come Marching Through.
