Centerplate Will Take Over Food & Bev at WWII Museum

After last month's decision that the John Besh Restaurant Group will no longer run the show at American Sector and The Soda Shop at The National World War II Museum, a replacement has been announced. Centerplate, a "global hospitality company"—the same folks that take care of concessions at the Superdome and Convention Center—are now on board with the museum. They'll take care of the food and bev operations in the restaurants (the museum retains the rights to the names), at the Stage Door Canteen venue, and will also cover public and private events, The Advocate reports. It doesn't look like there was any bad blood with the Besh/Museum split, as the growing museum said "our needs are different than when we began" and Team Besh said they "can focus on new expansion plans," one of which is a collab with Chopped host/chef Aaron Sanchez on a casual taqueria Johnny Sanchez that will go in the former Ste. Marie space on Poydras Street.
