Four Seasons’ New Orleans outpost announces details of signature restaurant

by | 18 Mar 2021 | Hotel Projects, Projects

Located in the soon-to-open Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans, the Alexander Waterworth Interiors-designed Miss River restaurant by chef-partner Alon Shaya will be inspired by the state of Louisiana.

Set to open in mid-2021, Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans has now unveiled the vision behind its signature restaurant Miss River.

A love letter to Louisiana

Helmed by chef-partner Alon Shaya, a Louisiana resident for nearly two decades, the lobby restaurant will effectively be a love letter to the state, featuring a menu of elevated regional classics using fresh, seasonal ingredients from his network of local fishermen, farmers and other purveyors.

From the central Food Stage, where diners can ogle chefs plating up signature plates, expect dishes such as clay pot dirty rice with seared duck breast, duck egg yolk and scallions; Louisiana oyster patty with flaky puff pastry, caramelised shiitake mushrooms and citrus zest; and whole carved buttermilk fried chicken to share with dipping sauces. Patrons can pair this with a glass from the restaurant’s extensive wine menu, incorporating a selection of both new- and old-world wines, or take their pick from one of the Imbibe Carts, which seductively circle the room with a curated selection of champagnes, aperitifs, and digestifs.

Pre- or post-dinner, the 30-seat bar, located within the restaurant, will offer a bold selection of cocktails, a fine spirits collection, including rare top-shelf spirits, as well as a Sommelier Table, where up to five standing guests can enjoy guided wine tastings.

Indulgent interiors

The design is the work of London-based Alexander Waterworth Interiors, which is creating ‘a tonal palette enriched from the Garden District, and shapes evoking natural elements of the region’. Guests can look forward to admiring rich materials and details including pink quartzite polished marble, brass and bronze accents, coloured stained glass by artist Lesley Green, textured scalloped wallpaper in soft pink tones, walnut timber and leathers by Moore & Giles & Whistler.

Everything will be highlighted by soft bespoke lighting and a curated selection of artwork by Kate Chertavian, featuring acclaimed local artists as well as international counterparts inspired by New Orleans. This includes photography by Lara Morgan, Horton Humble’s ceramics, and the work of rising filmmaker Garrett Bradley, who has produced images specifically for this project.

“Miss River is a place for celebration, where incredible food, drink and ambiance combine for unforgettable dining experiences,” said Mali Carow, general manager of Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans. “Alon Shaya’s spirited cuisine, legendary Four Seasons service, evocative design, and art inspired by New Orleans come together here in a magically connected way.”
