You can almost never go wrong with surf and turf, that’s why one of our top places for Valentine’s Day is Harlequin Steaks and Seafood. According to Cajun Radio, this place has a tradition dating back to the 1950s, so it’s a great place to go to ensure everyone has a good time.

Odds are if you ask around, La Truffe Sauvage (“The Wild Truffle”) is one of the hot spots for this romantic holiday. Who doesn’t like French gourmet dining? Although it might be alittle more expensive than other places, if you’re looking to impress your date, this is the place to be.

Last but not least, Mazen’s Restaurant is perfect for those of you that are looking for something a little different.

2016 Nissan Titan XD Revs it’s Diesel V8 at 2015 Detroit Auto Show

Nissan has launched the diesel-powered Titan XD at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, claiming it challenges the full-size pickup segment with its bold new design and strength, and we’re inclined to nod our heads in agreement.

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD uses a unique frame and chassis to handle its powerful Cummins 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel and expand its towing and payload potential. Everything about the new truck is stronger, tougher, and more durable—it would scream heavy-duty at you, if it could scream, but we imagine that V8 Turbo Diesel sings a deeper and rougher tune.

When properly equipped, the Titan XD will offer a maximum payload of more than 2,000 pounds and a maximum tow rating of more than 12,000 pounds, along with snow plow capability and numerous available towing aids (incl. Integrated Trailer Brake Controller, Trailer Sway Control, Tow/Haul Mode with Downhill Speed Control, and Trailer Light Check system).

For all the details, and there are many, check out the official press release. In the meantime, we’ll be impatiently waiting for the 2016 Titan XD at Nissan of Lake Charles!

NYC Taxi of Tomorrow Program Set to Launch April 2015

NYC Taxi of TomorrowSome major changes will soon come to the streets of New York City. According to a Nissan news release, New York City’s Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC) has declared April 20th the official start day for the Taxi of Tomorrow program. It will require that almost every retiring taxi be replaced with a Nissan NV200, and will also significantly increase the number of wheelchair-accessible vehicles in the fleet.

The NYC Taxi of Tomorrow guidelines require all Manhattan yellow taxis be replaced by a NV200, an alternate wheelchair-accessible vehicle, or a hybrid. Nissan has been working closely with BraunAbility (the global leader in automotive mobility) to provide wheelchair-accessible NV200s, which are currently available for purchase.

The Nissan NV200 is the ideal taxi for NYC due to its unique safety features and production. The NV200 is the only taxi which leaves the factory with an installed partition. Partitions that are installed aftermarket usually compromise other safety features (like rendering the airbags useless), so this approach won’t pose a problem. In addition, the NV200 meets global pedestrian-protection standards that reduce the impact to a pedestrian when hit by a vehicle.

In an effort to ensure the NV200’s performance, Nissan created its own “New York Ave” at its Arizona proving grounds. The street was designed to replicate the congested traffic and pedestrian conditions of New York City, and the NV200 was rigorously tested and refined with the help of actual NYC taxi drivers.

Here at Nissan of Lake Charles, we are excited to see New York City’s Taxi & Limousine Commission making our environment, safety, and accessibility major priorities.
