Lagarde, serving Cajun and New Orleans dishes, opens at Parkview on Peachtree in Chamblee this April. The restaurant, located along Peachtree Boulevard, is owned by chef Jamie Adams and Leonardo Moura of Italian restaurant il Giallo Osteria & Bar in Sandy Springs. Lagarde is Adams’ middle name.
Dishes are based on recipes from Adams’ childhood and family trips to New Orleans, where his parents grew up. He intends to include his mother’s gumbo, barbecue shrimp, and rice and ham on the menu at Lagarde, as well as well as po’boys, Gulf oysters, and classic desserts like pecan pie. Brunch will also see another New Orleans classic listed — grits and grillade (grits topped with slow-cooked cuts of meat covered in red gravy.)
“There is and always has been such a rich diversity of cultures that make up New Orleans’ culinary landscape,” Adams says in the press release. “In creating the concept of Lagarde, we wanted to reflect all of those wonderful flavors and their varied heritage.”
Lagarde joins chef Jared Hucks’ The Alden and Fúdo, a Japanese cafe and sushi bar owned by John and Grace Lee of Ichiban Steak and Sushi, already open at the complex.
Open for dinner, Tuesday through Sunday, and for lunch and brunch on the weekends.
5090 Peachtree Boulevard, Atlanta.
