Peche: Keeping An Old Flame Burning

If you find yourself in downtown New Orleans this summer, consider the Warehouse District at the corner of Magazine and Julia Streets. That’s where you’ll find the Peche Seafood Grill, and Chef Ryan Prewitt’s masterful menu.

Old school cooking styles, unique dishes, and a sophisticated modern look are just a few of things that led to this rustic-style eatery earning the James Beard Award for “Best New Restaurant” in the United States.

Using live-fire cooking techniques, Prewitt keeps an open hearth of carefully stoked hardwood coals, which also allows for a unique show as you await your meal. It’s all for the sake of creating a menu full of traditional New Orleans seafood favorites.

Peche also has an oyster bar that features not only crab meat and fresh gulf fish, but of course, oysters!
