Recognized as one of New Orleans’ preeminent chefs, Chef Link has peppered the streets of the Warehouse District with several distinctive restaurants over the past 13 years. Herbsaint, a contemporary take on the French-American “bistro,” was Link’s first restaurant and helped earn him a James Beard Award for Best Chef (South, 2007).
Cochon, opened with chef-partner Stephen Stryjewski, is where Link offers true Cajun and Southern cooking. It was listed in The New York Times as “one of the top three restaurants that count.”
Calcasieu is Chef Link’s private event facility that takes its name from one of the parishes in the Acadiana region of southwest Louisiana, while Pêche Seafood Grill is the most recent to open in New Orleans.
The James Beard Foundation also nominated Link for the prestigious award of Outstanding Chef in 2012 and 2013. For his commitment to the industry, the Louisiana Restaurant Association honored Link by naming him Restaurateur of the Year in 2012.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Food for Thought, to help fight local childhood hunger. Its small volunteer team provides backpacks filled with easy-to-make meals so children can focus on their development and education… not where the next meal is coming from.
