Wyatt has been named one of the Top Five Pastry Chefs to Watch by The Times Picayune was nominated for Food & Wine magazine’s People’s Best New Pastry Chef award and was the first pastry chef deemed as a ‘Chef to Watch’ by Louisiana Cookin’ Magazine.
Chef Alfredo Nogueira,
Chef Alfredo Nogueira started cooking as soon as he was old enough to work, first at the original Zea Rotisserie Grill and then later at restaurants like RioMar and Vega Tapas Cafe. Hurricane Katrina sent Nogueira to Chicago, where he became more serious about cooking. Eventually, he became the executive chef at a bar called Analogue, where he made classic Louisiana food. Soon after, Nogueira returned to New Orleans. He was hired as the executive chef at Cafe Henri, where he created a new menu that reflects his many influences. Chef Nogueira is currently at NOLA’s Cane & Table.
Chef Marcus Jacobs, Marjie’s Grill
Chef Marcus Jacobs began cooking professionally in his native Ohio at the age of 18. He trained under local Chef Alana Shock until he moved to California where he worked for Chef Judy Rodgers at San Francisco institution Zuni Cafe. After leaving the Bay Area he traveled through Southern Japan, working on farms and learning regional Japanese home cooking. Upon returning to the States he found himself in New Orleans which would soon become his home. Working under Chefs Donald Link, Ryan Prewitt, and Rebecca Wilcomb, Marcus spent seven years at Herbsaint Bar and Restaurant; eventually rising to become the Executive Sous Chef before leaving to follow his dream of opening Marjie’s Grill.
Adolfo Garcia grew up in New Orleans and is the son of Panamanian parents. Years later, as Chef Adolfo, he fuses the tastes of local seafood and Creole dishes with the flavors of the Latin American food he ate at the family dinner table. The result, New Orleans agrees, is a mouth-watering success. His restaurant, LaBoca, is a mecca for those who enjoy Latin spice in their dining. But on Freret Street, Garcia’s High Hat, is a classic New Orleans café featuring Southern fare — fried catfish and oyster po-boys — but look for menu surprises like the Cuban sandwich. Next door, his pizzeria, Ancora, offers authentic Neapolitan pies.
Garcia’s accolades include being named James Beard 2010 Semifinalist “Best Chef for the South” and “Chef of the Year” by New Orleans Magazine for La Boca as well as one of Hispanic Magazine’s Top 8 Latin Chefs in the Country.
