Angeline, the glorious new Southern restaurant form Sylvain alum Alex Harrell officially opens next Tuesday, March 24, Todd Price reports. The highly-anticipated restaurant taking over the former Stella space is named after Harrell's mother, and the chef is hoping to capture her 'elegance, charm, and grace' with his first solo affair, after years of putting Quarter gastropub Sylvain on the map. The dining room actually features a portrait of Harrell's mother as well as some of her Alabama folk pottery.
The menu will be reasonably priced and focus on locally-sourced Southern fare inspired by his home state of Alabama as well as Louisiana, with some northern Mediterranean influences and an emphasis on quality ingredients that need minimal-preparation. Harrell has already declared his excitement for a reinterpreted barbecue shrimp dish he's been perfecting, along with the killer beverage program run by Death & Co. alum Jeff Grdinich.
