The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that the city’s first Michelin-starred restaurant will open this month at a downtown office building, The American Conservatives reports.
The restaurant, which will open as soon as this month, will serve the chef’s signature seafood dish, the Chowder, in a traditional, French-style setting.
It will also serve the French dishes, such as the Décret, a lamb dish.
Chef-owner Richard Alpert is also known for his signature Chowder.
“He’s one of the best chefs in the world,” said New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, who is also the former chef-owner of a popular New Orleans restaurant.
“The idea is to take the best of the French, to try to make a meal that’s going to be as authentic and as authentic as possible.”
The restaurant will be open from 6 p.c. to 9 p.t.
The owner said that he and his team have been working to create the perfect meal, but that he is also open to ideas about future recipes.
“We don’t want to limit ourselves to just one thing.
We can take the inspiration from any place and apply it to any thing, from the traditional dishes to new ideas,” he said.
The Chowder will be served with shrimp, crab, lobster, crab cakes, and a selection of pastries.
A portion of the proceeds from the restaurant will go to a charity benefiting the city and its first responders, according to the Times- Picayune.
