New Ralph Brennan restaurant
Heritage Plaza welcomes the magic of the Ralph Brennan Restaurant Group -- and RBRG welcomes a spacious new catering kitchen!
At the base of Veterans Memorial Boulevard in Metairie, in the Heritage Plaza complex that serves as the hub to so much of New Orleans’ popular media, the local lunchtime population is in for a treat. A Ralph Brennan-style treat. Brennan, the man behind Red Fish Grill and Ralph’s on the Park, is bringing his restaurant success to the space formerly occupied by Chops Bistro & Martini Bar. Easily accessible from downtown New Orleans, his new Heritage Grill is destined to become the go-to lunch spot for those who mix mid-day business with pleasure. RBRG executive chef Haley Bittermann has developed a New American menu for Heritage Grill that emphasizes the flavors of New Orleans and spans the range of luncheon whims from just-a-salad to mid-day-meal. It features Warm Crab Dip to start; Duck & Andouille Gumbo for your gumbo fix;BBQ Oyster Salad to keep it light; a House-roasted Turkey Sandwich with Buttermilk Onion Rings as a classic combo; and full entrées like Heritage Grill Filet and the signature Crab cakes & Angel Hair Pasta. Heritage Grill opens on Tuesday, March 22, serving lunch only from 11am-3pm. It expects to receive its liquor license in about a month’s time, and will also soon be launching an additional lunchtime “carry-out”, “gourmet to-go” dinner, and Heritage Plaza lunch time delivery service. The good news for Chef Bittermann is that Heritage Grill boasts a cavernous kitchen that will become her headquarters for the Ralph Brennan Restaurant Group Catering operations. The team will continue to bring all the flavor and flair for which it is known to local weddings, family occasions, and corporate events – and will have the much-needed elbow room in which to do so.
