Chef Chris DeBarr ankles the Delachaise

Posted By on Fri, Jun 27, 2008 at 10:43 PM

Chris DeBarr, the chef who put the Delachaise Hotel on the food map with his acclaimed bar menu, has left the restaurant, according to a blog posting this afternoon by his partner, the novelist Poppy Z. Brite.

DeBarr was named the city's "Best New Chef" by New Orleans magazine in 2006. In Gambit's current cover survey of the 50 best bars in New Orleans, the Delachaise ranked #4, with the editors citing DeBarr's "adventurous menu of wild-boar patés and duck fat pommes frites."

No word as to why DeBarr has left, or where you'll be able to eat his chilled watermelon soup and Creole tomato BLT salads in the near future...
