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.

Meet our Cast Iron Foie Gras 🤩

This appetizer a guest favorite! We sear the foie gras in a hot cast iron pan until charred on the outside, and warm, soft and buttery on the inside. Great for spreading onto our house-made brioche beignet with a touch of our apple butter and ham! All the elements certainly bring the dish together for a savory and sweet bite 👏

Have you tried our Baby Beet Mélange? This salad is a menu staple and also happens to be featured on our Valentine`s Day prix fixe menu 💘

Made with a mixture of fresh baby beets, goat cheese, candied pecans, arugula, and saba, it`s an elegant start to any Valentine`s Day celebration.

Our full Valentine`s Day prix fixe ($120 per person) is coming soon! We are typically closed on Wednesdays, however, since Valentine`s Day falls on Ash Wednesday this year, we will be closed for Fat Tuesday instead.

This is a Wednesday you won`t want to miss 🥂

The colors and flavors in our BBQ Gulf Shrimp & Blue Corn Grits always have us in awe 🦐

This meal certainly pays tribute to the original BBQ shrimp at the landmark Creole Italian restaurant @pascals.manale, but there`s a twist!

Our very own @chefjohnfolse receives whole blue corn grain from a local seed company, and then he mills the grain himself on-site at his @whiteoakestateandgardens in Baton Rouge. These grits have a robust, earthy flavor, but they`re buttery and creamy just like traditional New Orleans shrimp & grits should be ⚜️

Come see us for dinner tonight! Link in bio for reservations with @opentable 🔗
