Nathaniel Zimet To Open New Restaurant in Marigny

Nathaniel Zimet, the awesome Boucherie chef who is basically still recovering from being shot three times by an armed robber back in May of 2011, is planning to open a second restaurant next Fall in the former Santa Fe (and Desperado's) restaurant space on the corner of Dauphine and Frenchman in the Marigny, the Times-Pic reports. The yet unnamed restaurant will be two-stories, have about 70 seats downstairs and a giant bar upstairs.

Zimet tells Judy Walker that it's "the next step up" from Boucherie: "If Boucherie is fine dining for the people, this will be much closer to fine dining, but very approachable, very comfortable." The menu sounds very meat-tastic, including plans for a "mixed grill related to the hunting season." Look for Zimet on the December 18 episode of Chopped.
