Preux & Proper Restaurant Review

: With Preux & Proper, Baton Rouge native Joshua Kopel offers a taste of the South in downtown LA. The upstairs dining room menu from executive chef/partner Sammy Monsour offers both classic and modern takes, as in fried Mississippi catfish, chicken fried pork belly and rabbit jambalaya. Barroom eats like deep dish biscuit dough pizzas are offered downstairs.
