Modern, Imaginative Reinterpretations of Classic Cajun and Creole Cuisine

 

“Since the 1970s, I have worked in the food and beverage industry, starting my career in earnest at the Prince Murat Inn in Baton Rouge. Shortly thereafter, I opened The Rathskeller on Third Street in the same city, and discovered my entrepreneurial spirit. My world exploded! I opened Lafitte’s Landing Restaurant – on a wish and a prayer – in 1978 at the foot of the Sunshine Bridge in Donaldsonville, LA. As I renovated the old home, local legend intimated that it had been the residence of privateer Jean Lafitte, thus the restaurant’s name. In 1983, I opened A Taste of Louisiana restaurants throughout the world, introducing Cajun and Creole cuisine from Japan to Beijing, Hong Kong to Seoul, Bogota to Taiwan, and Rome to Moscow. In my fifty-year culinary odyssey around the globe, nuisance of flavors influenced my palate and crept into my culinary melting pot. Restaurant R’evolution is the epitome of diverse tastes and flavors; the Holy Grail of dining experiences; my magnum opus. Your overture begins.”

 

– Chef John Folse

From contemporary twists to vintage cocktails

Restaurant R’evolution will feature chef-driven, seasonal cocktails inspired by Pre-Prohibition-era libations. The bar will focus on classic, “gilded age” cocktails, reimagined through a modern lens and emphasizing fresh ingredients.

Hand-carved Jamón Ibérico de Bellota is sure to satisfy the carnivorous palate.

The Ibérico pig is a rare breed of pig found in Spain. They roam forests along the Spanish and Portuguese border feasting only on wild acorns (de bellota). This natural diet yields fatty marbled ham with a rich and nutty flavor.

We enjoy sharing this delicacy with our guests, known globally as the finest cured ham (jamón). These hams boast a distinctively elongated and slender shape, with dark hooves (pata negra) and flesh ranging from rosy to deep purplish crimson. Their texture is remarkably tender. Thanks to a high content of healthy monounsaturated fats, slices gleam when served at room temperature.

Meet Chef de Cuisine Chris Anderson, a Michelin Star chef who has been an integral part of our team for a year, and we couldn`t be prouder. Under Anderson’s leadership, the kitchen of Restaurant R’evolution has reached new heights.

His tantalizing dishes beautifully reflect the culinary traditions of New Orleans. Originally from Washington, North Carolina, Chef Chris has garnered experience working in esteemed restaurants across the nation, including Chicago, Nashville, and Washington D.C.

Following a year-long stint in Lyon, France, where he resided and worked at the prestigious 2 Michelin Star restaurant Auberge de L’ile, Chef Chris pursued his passion for culinary excellence in Chicago. Over the next three years, he refined his skills at renowned fine dining establishments in the region—Alinea, and the formers Moto and L2O—before discovering his true culinary calling at Moto.

It was in 2016 that Chef Chris earned Moto the prestigious honor of 1 Michelin Star.

When you dine with us, you`re experiencing Chef Chris` fine eye for detail and culinary expertise, mixed with the legendary recipes of Chef John Folse.

We love New Orleans, we love food, but we also love local art 🎨 Each of our six dining rooms is filled with works from local and nationally known artists.

Our Courtyard Room is home to this original painting by Colette Pope Heldner, titled "Patio Famous Old Tin Shop" from 1930. The scene depicts an old New Orleans idylls. A Minnesota native, Heldner and her husband moved to New Orleans in the 1920 after visiting on their honeymoon. Her portfolio of work consists of vibrant oil paintings depicting scenes of the French Quarter, old New Orleans and Louisiana swamps and bayous.
