Creole restaurant in Juban Due to the COVID pandemic, it will be closed after July 2020 and will be reopened later this year and early 2022.
Creating a recently reopened Raving Fans Hospitality Group SoLouPatio Restaurant Bar, Take over the restaurant operator. The group consists of chef Peter Sclafani, former Juban owner Michael Boudreaux, and Kiva Guidroz.
“I know Juban has great bones, but I want to rethink it and see what else I can do,” says Scrafani. “It has been around for 40 years and we want to take it for another 40 years.”
The restaurant continues to be Creole’s fine dining facility, with popular dishes such as Hallelujah Club and Fish Adrian remaining on the menu. However, other changes may occur.
The group is working with local marketing firm Xdesign Inc. to rebrand. Juban remains in the name, but subtitles may be added, Skrafani said.
A local architectural firm, DNA Workshop, has also been brought in to explore all the space the restaurant occupies. He said the size of Juban’s with multiple dining rooms was one of the reasons why it wasn’t reopened after more than a year. “The pandemic did not allow large gatherings,” Scrafani said.
We plan to revive the frequent banquets and parties in Juvans. “We don’t want to change that much,” he said.
As a model for the new Juban, Scrafani pointed out two restaurants he owns in part. Phils Oyster Bar When Portobelo’s Grill.. Like Juban, both are local eateries that have been popular for many years.
“In the case of Phil, we didn’t want to go in and raise our heads,” he said. “I wanted to pay homage to the past and bring it into the future by updating the menu a bit to make it more modern.” The same thing happened at Portobello’s. Last year, we prepared an old favorite new menu with Louisiana-inspired dishes such as delicious crab cheesecake, heirloom tomato salad, butter steak with wild mushroom bread pudding, roast duck, and crab dumplings.
