Chef Scott Maki to open Trinity restaurant in the French Quarter 

  Chef Scott Maki will open Trinity (1117 Decatur St.) in late 2015 in the spot formerly occupied by Maximo's Italian Grill. Maki most recently worked at Maple Street Patisserie et Bistro and worked at Rambla, the now shuttered Central Business District tapas restaurant.

  A news release says the restaurant, whose namesake pays tribute to the "holy trinity" of Creole cooking, is influenced by Cajun cuisine and culinary techniques from Italy, France and Vietnam.

  A preview menu includes oysters, smoked Gouda and andouille beignets and a duck boucherie plate including hickory-cured duck ham, Vietnamese-style duck boudin, Cajun-spiced duck wings and duck liver cracklings. Desserts include a Papa Rouge float, a nod to the Louisiana strawberry-flavored soda Pop a Rouge. Cocktails will be provided by beverage director Adam Damore, whose resume includes stints at Phillips Bar, Mr. John's Steakhouse and Root.

  The 6,000-square-foot space features a wraparound bar and leather and marble banquettes that overlook the open kitchen. Upstairs seating includes the balcony and a private dining area. The restaurant will serve dinner daily.
