Kelly Barker and Cristiano Raffignone, owners of the uptown French restaurant Martinique Bistro, have reportedly purchased Dick & Jenny's. Raffignone, who also owns Cristiano's in Houma, LA, has been operating a pop-up version of Cristiano's at Martinique on Monday nights, but now plans to add some of Cristiano's signature dishes to the menu at Dick & Jenny's. Barker and Raffignone will be the third team to own Dick & Jenny's, which was originally opened by Dick and Jenny Benz, who sold the property to Will and Leigh Peters, former employees of the restaurant, in 2007. Although the restaurant has traditionally served its version of comfort food, Barker and Raffignone's other restaurants are more upscale, so regular customers are eager to see how the menu offerings will change under new ownership, and under the direction of current Dick & Jenny's chef Stacy Hall, who will work with Cristiano's executive chef Lindsey Mason. Dick & Jenny's, 4501 Tchoupitoulas St., New Orleans, LA 70115, 504-894-9880.
