Chef Chris DeBarr opens his new restaurant Green Goddess today. An alum of Commander's Palace and formerly the chef behind the gourmet kitchen at Delachaise, DeBarr takes over the spot (307 Exchange Place) in the French Quarter long occupied by the vegetarian Old Dog, New Trick. DeBarr's menu is not vegetarian but is rather wonky, culling exotic ingredients and recipes from around the globe (maybe skip the explanation of Mexican huitlacoche). The menu is posted on his blog. He is still waiting on his liquor license, but expects to have it soon. The restaurant is not taking reservations, but he plans to do so for the tasting bar, when the restaurant is running on full steam.
