There are more changes at the Besh Restaurant Group (www.chefjohnbesh.com). The restaurant group created Our House Hospitality to run some of its hotel restaurants, including the Caribbean Room and Silver Whistle Cafe in the Pontchartrain Hotel. Those restaurants now will be run by QED Hospitality, a company formed by Besh Restaurant Employees. QED's CEO is Emery Whelan, who was an executive manager at the restaurant group, and co-owner Brian Landry is still executive chef and a partner with the Besh Restaurant Group at Borgne in the Hyatt Regency New Orleans. QED also will run restaurants in the Thompson Nashville hotel in Tennessee. Chef, founder and CEO John Besh stepped down from leadership in his restaurant group in October following publication of a story by NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune detailing allegations of sexual misconduct at the company.
