Dear New Orleanians,

 

We are all going through what could be the toughest challenge we have ever faced and hopefully ever will. Our team has had to make the difficult decision to suspend all to-go and delivery service.

 

This decision was made after careful consideration, and out of the deepest concern for the health and safety of our existing team members and our community, in an effort to help contain the spread of this virus. We will continue to provide meals for our employees and their families for as long as possible.

 

For 20 years, we’ve been proud to be part of this wonderful city. Closing our doors completely to the guests we love is a decision we make with very heavy hearts, but we are resilient, and we will come out of this stronger.

 

Sincerely,
Donald Link & Stephen Stryjewski

“Chef Donald Link’s first restaurant — not as splashy as recent partnerships like Cajun-Southern sensation Cochon, sandwich shop extraordinaire Cochon Butcher, and grilled seafood palace Peche — still exudes a bewitching, timeless gentility. Like New Orleans itself, the kitchen borrows from a grab bag of cultures and somehow arrives at an elegant crossroad. Italian influences show especially well — the riff on spaghetti carbonara with a poached egg is one of the city’s modern classics — but visitors and residents alike who sip one spoonful of the powerful, chocolate-brown gumbo will know themselves to be nowhere else but Louisiana.”
