Uptown Gem Baie Rouge Changes Name, Adds Chef Dominique Macquet to Helm

The switcheroo puts an end to New Orleans' favorite brie fries.

The Uptown bistro known for brie fries, an epic fish sandwich and being one of reader's most beloved brunch and underrated gems Baie Rouge (4128 Magazine) has quietly and quickly rebranded itself into Saveur Cuisine & Cocktails.  New Orleans' food goddess Lorin Gaudin spread the word via Twitter yesterday. The restaurant's website does indeed show that chef Dominique Macquet, formerly of Dominique's on Magazine, is now involved with the operation, and with that comes a new menu devoid of brie fries and fish sandwiches (sorry, ladies men).

Saveur also leaves behind the colorful paint scheme for a more refined coat of grey, along with modern art and white tablecloths. Word on the street is that Baie Rouge owner Kimble Donington Smith is still involved.

Eater has reached out to Macquet and the restaurant and is awaiting reply at this time. UPDATE, 1:40 p.m: Macquet tells Eater that he is indeed IN at Saveur, which has been open since Saturday. He is currently still working out the menu, so nothing is yet set in stone.

Saveur is open Monday to Thursday 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. and Friday to Saturday 5:30 to 10:30 p.m.
