Todd Price reports that Dan Causgrove, who left Seaworthy in October after two years, will serve as executive chef of French Quarter brasserie Justine. Causgrove previously worked for Devillier at La Petite Grocery for five years as sous chef before a brief stint at the now-shuttered LGD restaurant Dijon and three years as chef de cuisine at Windsor Court’s Grill Room.
The restaurant, opening in a historic building at 225 Chartres Street, is the highly-anticipated third restaurant for Devillier and wife and business partner Mia Freiberger-Devillier. They also own La Petite Grocery, which Eater calls one of the best restaurants in the country, and Balise.
According to Price, Causgrove and Devillier talked about opening a brasserie serving traditional dishes like French onion soup, steak tartare and steak frites during their time together at La Petite. Their years-in-the-making creation comes to fruition in early January.
