Chef Scott Maki To Open Trinity On Lower Decatur, Late 2015

NEW ORLEANS – Celebrating the hospitality, cuisine, and conviviality synonymous with all-things-New Orleans, Trinity is the new restaurant slated to open its doors in the French Quarter in Late 2015. 

         Located at 1117 Decatur St., Trinity will be the newest addition to the burgeoning area known as Lower Decatur and will serve an eclectic menu reflecting the myriad of cultural influences that define Louisiana fare, in a sleek indoor-outdoor setting.

         “We are excited to bring this concept to the folks of New Orleans,” said General Manager William David. “Trinity will encompass everything we believe dining should be – polished service, a welcoming ambiance and a moderately priced menu prepared with care.”

         Though the restaurant’s name is a nod to the trio of aromatic ingredients that are the basis of Cajun cooking (onions/ celery /bell peppers), Trinity points to the three hallmarks of the Southern dining experience – eating, drinking and conversation. 

         Executive Chef Scott Maki who has worked under some of New Orleans’ most iconic chefs/ restaurateurs including Emeril Lagasse, John Besh and Susan Spicer, will oversee culinary operations. Maki combines his passion for spotlighting the individual cultures that make up New Orleans cuisine with his savvy cooking techniques to create a menu certain to tantalize even the most discerning palates.

         The menu, still in development, will pay tribute to the cuisine and techniques of Italy, France, Vietnam and Cajun Country – the amalgamation of ethnicities that contribute to the very unique and easily recognizable flavor of New Orleans food culture.

A wrap-around food bar and elevated leather and marble banquettes overlook the open kitchen, allowing guests to take in the action. Upstairs, additional seating options will include a private dining room and outdoor seating on the candlelit balcony, overlooking the horse-drawn carriages and stunning architecture of Lower Decatur Street.
