News for Restaurants in New Orleans
Management at the Windsor Court Hotel recently decided to cut the position of executive chef at its flagship restaurant, The New Orleans Grill Room. The position had been held since July by Greg Sonnier, who had earned national recognition for his cuisine at Gabrielle, the restaurant he and his wife Mary operated in New Orleans prior to Hurricane Katrina. Brett Breaux, the chef for the hotel's catering operations, is now also in charge of the kitchen for The New Orleans Grill Room and the hotel's Polo Lounge. The New Orleans Grill Room, Windsor Court Hotel, 300 Gravier St., New Orleans, LA 70130, 504-522-1994.
Ruth's Chris Steakhouse announced plans to open a new steakhouse in New Orleans later this spring in Harrah's Hotel. The new restaurant would mark the first return to New Orleans for the national steakhouse chain since Hurricane Katrina. Ruth's Chris reopened its Metairie restaurant a few months after Katrina, but the company's original location in Mid-City has remained shuttered since the flood. Ruth's Chris relocated its headquarters from the New Orleans area to Orlando, Fla. immediately after Hurricane Katrina. The planned new restaurant will have outdoor seating along the Fulton Street pedestrian mall, will have banquet rooms and will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, 228 Poydras St., New Orleans, LA 70130, no phone available yet.
