One of the best parts about visiting the city of New Orleans is that every time you return, there is always a new restaurant to try! As the sister hotel to Bienville House, we are proud to announce the arrival of a new restaurant, Latitude 29, opening this fall in the lobby area of Bienville House.
Opening in September 2014, Latitude 29 will be a full-service modern fine-dining experience with world-class cocktails designed by author and internationally recognized exotic drink expert Jeff “Beachbum” Berry. Hailed by Esquire magazine as “one of the instigators of the cocktail revolution” and by Food & Wine as “one of the world’s leading rum experts,” Berry recently won Best New Cocktail/Bartending Book at the Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards for his book, Beachbum Berry’s Potions of the Caribbean.
Mr. Berry will be working with Chef Chris Shortall, designer Bosko Hrnjak, and Head Bartender Steve Yamada to create a vibrant, sophisticated, transportive environment that aims to provide a haven for both visitors and locals alike.
Latitude 29 will be housed within the elegant Bienville House Hotel, an establishment long venerated for its attention to detail and customer service. The restaurant’s owners and staff look forward to welcoming the hotel’s guests and introducing them to their Asian-inspired cuisine and conversation-piece cocktails.
Please stay tuned for future announcements regarding hours, menu, and opening date.
