La Petite Grocery's Justin Devillier will open a new French brasserie in the historic Hurwitz Mintz building on Chartres Street, a representative for the restaurant confirmed last week. The project is still "in its infancy" and so far no name or opening date have been selected.
The new spot from Devillier and his wife Mia Freiberger-Devillier will be modeled on a French brasserie, the spokesperson said.
The new spot is the third restaurant for the couple, who also run La Petite Grocery on Magazine Street in Uptown and Balise on Carondelet Street in the Warehouse District.
Devillier has been a strong presence in the New Orleans dining scene and was the winner of the James Beard Award for Best Chef: South in 2016.
