The Manning's Restaurant kitchen carousel has a new rider?Chef Jared Tees will be taking the short stroll from Besh Steak House (Manning's bunkmate in Harrah's casino) to become executive chef at the Archie Manning's sports-themed eatery.
In a press release, Tees promised to make Manning's a "game-day destination," starting with a new game-day menu featuring shared appetizers like slow-roasted pork and fries and the obligatory chicken wings. Oh, and he also promised, in the true game-day spirit of magnanimity, that the Saints would run the table (just kidding). A New Orleans restaurant vet, Tees worked at the now-defunct Bacco, Mr. B's, and Commander's before joining the Besh Restaurant Group in 2006.
