Now home to three Rising Stars—2003 Rising Star Chef Scott Boswell, 2012 Rising Star Pastry Chef Rebecca Cohen, and 2012 Rising Star Sommelier John Mitchell—the talent at French Quarter Stella! is stacked. Boswell’s food is as artful and playful as ever, kissed by the South with a luxurious accent (truffles and foie make numerous menu appearances). Cohen crafts naturalistic plates that relish in an idea, that express concepts with novel flavor combinations and textural flourish. Pulling together the whole dining experience, Mitchell opens his premium cellar up for diners’ whims and pleasures, pairing wines like journeys to small-production vineyards in Burgundy and Lebanon. In the elegant environs of Stella! and under the watchful eyes of the kitchen and front-of-house staff, no detail is too small, no moment too insignificant to seize and shape into a memorable dining experience.
