It's finally happened: René Bistrot has reopened. The restaurant by French Master Chef René Bajeux opens today in the Renaissance Arts Hotel in the Warehouse District. It takes over the space previously occupied by LaCôte Brasserie. Before Katrina, René Bistrot existed in the Renaissance Père Marquette Hotel; after the storm, Bajeux bounced around before returning to New Orleans last year to run the kitchen at the Rib Room. The menu, as one might expect, will be French bistro-style with contemporary haute cuisine touches.

Hours: Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner
