Dijon debuts 

  The new Lower Garden District restaurant Dijon (1377 Annunciation St., 522-4712) opened last week.

  Housed in a historic former firehouse, Dijon is the first restaurant project from Kurt Brodtmann, and the chef is Chris Cody, who had a short but promising run at the now-shuttered Ristorante Pellicano in Kenner.

  Cody's menu for Dijon is eclectic, mixing French, Italian and contemporary Creole flavors. Examples include smoked pork and poblano ravioli with goat cheese bechamel, sesame-crusted tuna with wasabi remoulade, and roasted duck with corn andouille relish and bourbon-fig glaze.

  One special feature of Dijon is a chef's table with its own small kitchen so guests can watch and interact with the chef as their meals are prepared.

  "At a lot of chef's tables, you don't see the food being cooked and the chef sometimes just comes around to say hi, but this is going to be a different experience," Cody says.

  Dijon's building dates back to 1914 and originally was used by the early New Orleans Fire Department, which kept horse-drawn wagons there. It sat empty from 1991 to 2003, when it was renovated into a restaurant space.

  Dijon serves dinner Tuesday through Saturday, lunch on Friday and brunch on Sunday.
