Nina Compton’s recently-opened restaurant has been named one of the “best new restaurants around the world” in an article posted on Huffington Post.
According to the article, penned by Alyssa Bird for Architectural Design, Compton fell in love with New Orleans during her stint on Top Chef, “so much so that she decided to open her first restaurant there”.
“Compère Lapin, set on the ground floor of the Warehouse District’s Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery, marries the flavors of her native St. Lucia, her experience cooking French and Italian cuisine, and ingredients from the surrounding Gulf area. New York-based design firm Parts and Labor envisioned the industrial scheme,” the article stated.
Compton is also St. Lucia’s culinary ambassador.
