Peche Seafood Grill. In French, "pêché" means "catch." Inspired by trips to Spain and Uruguay, Peche will focus on seafood cooked over an open wood fire. Diners can watch as the seafood, along with meats and vegetables, cooks over the flames. The dishes, though, will still be rooted in Louisiana. The restaurant is a partnership between chefs Donald Link (Herbsaint, Cochon), Stephen Stryjewski (Cochon) and Ryan Prewitt, although Prewitt will have primary authority over the new kitchen.<br> Housed in a restored 19th-century building, Peche will share the modern aesthetic of Cochon. According to the Link Restaurant Group, the restaurant will have "high, pickled-wood ceilings; large, soaring windows; a thick-topped Cypress bar; and a marble top oyster bar."

"Went there for Valentine's Day. It was expensive. However the ingredients were the best. From the salad greens to the goat cheese (best I ever had) to the vegetables and the salmon. By far the best food in Laguna Beach."

Shaya is an innovative restaurant with a warm and welcoming approach to the dining culture inspired by Chef Alon Shaya’s Israeli upbringing. Chef Alon sees modern Israeli food as a grand mosaic, drawing influence from North Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Turkey and Greece. The menu at Shaya reflects the ongoing evolution of Israeli food, while celebrating the abundance of Louisiana and Alon’s close relationships with local farmers, which he has fostered through his ongoing work with the Crescent City Farmer’s Market. In keeping with the the ethos of all of the Besh restaurants, Shaya uses seasonal, responsibly- and locally-sourced ingredients. Similar to Alon’s other establishments in New Orleans, the wood-fire oven will be central to the menu development and the dining experience, starting with a basket of homemade warm wood-fired pita. Many dishes on the diverse menu are meant to be shared. Diners can expect Middle Eastern dishes such as falafel, kebabs and baba ganoush.

Named for the Lowcountry traditional dish requiring little more than rice and whatever meat might be on hand. Any time you add meat to rice and cook it all together in one pot, that's a Purloo. <br />The 30-seat exhibition kitchen and 40 seat regular restaurant will give diners an in-depth look at and taste of Southern regional fare. Helmed by chef/owner Ryan Hughes, Purloo serves as a place to both eat and learn. “Our team will engage with our diners as we cook, we’ll explain the steps and answer questions about the heritage behind each dish or where the ingredients come from. We’re here to not only provide a great meal, but an educational experience! <br />Guests can also enjoy both traditional and original Southern cocktails crafted by Head Bartender Carmine Potenza at the expansive & historic bar – built in 1851 and arrived by way of Bruning’s Restaurant, it is possibly the oldest bar in New Orleans.

"I think they need to work on their frying since the rabbit was greasy. The pea tendrils were also greasy. Took forever to get one drink from the bar. Service is inexperienced."

Johnny Sánchez is the inaugural restaurant collaboration of two old friends known for their world-class cuisine. John and Aarón, each of whom has been recognized with some of the culinary world’s most coveted awards, met years ago when Aarón began his career in New Orleans, working for legendary chef Paul Prudhomme. Later, the chefs’ paths crossed again while competing on the first season of Food Network’s “Next Iron Chef.” Since then, the two have become great friends and each has lit up the culinary scene by utilizing his unique talents and skills to entertain and educate the country about shared passions: food, drink, and hospitality. <br /><br />Serious food but a fun environment is the name of the game. Stepping through the door will bring guests out of their everyday routine and into a inspired atmosphere reminiscent of Mexico City.
