The design concept combines the gentility and charm of well-worn guest houses along the back roads of rural Louisiana, with the elegance and grace of the European kitchens that inspired the menu. Natural wood flooring, quilted fabrics, classic farmhouse furnishings and antique touches sourced from local antique fairs as well as Chef Drake Leonards families’ collection. The interior elements were overscaled to fill the soaring space; Voluminous linen lanterns hung between generous wood ceiling beams and oversized artwork, whitewashed shiplap and textured tiles fill the tall walls. A backdrop of century oaks surround the 20’+ glass jewel box. A dynamic bar, curved booths wrapped with cozy bookshelves and multiple tables for large parties are among the many areas at which to enjoy some of the most refined iterations of Cajun Country cuisine. An oyster & crudite station rivals the bustling chefs kitchen for a patron's attention to the finest chefs executing their craft.
