The upcoming New Orleans location of Ace Hotel is slated to open in spring 2016 with highly-anticipated dining offerings, including a Stumptown Coffee, a vibe curated by Oxalis founder Sonali Fernando, and now a restaurant from two James Beard nominated chefs from Memphis.

Todd Price reports that Andy Ticer and Michael Hudman of high end eatery Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen, the casual Hog & Hominy and Porcellino's Craft Butcher (also authors of cookbook Collards & Carbonara), will open a new restaurant and run the entire food and beverage offerings at the Warehouse District hotel (600 Carondelet)
The duo are regulars at Hogs for the Cause and Boudin, Bourbon & Beer, and their restaurants are known for marrying the flavors of the South with Italian cuisine. No word on the restaurant's name or concept as of yet.
