Bayou Bakery To Bring Louisiana Cuisine to Hill Center Carriage, Fall 2014
Restaurant Will Serve Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner & Weekend Brunch
by Larry Janezich
The Washington Post reported this morning that celebrity chef David Guas of Bayou Bakery, Coffee Bar & Eatery in Arlington will open a second restaurant in Hill Center’s Carriage House in late 2014 – a long awaited arrival, as the Hill Center has been trying to find a tenant for the building since it opened in November 2011.
The restaurant’s Louisiana cuisine menu will include buttermilk biscuits, beignets, muffuletta sandwiches and will expand beyond the offerings at the Arlington spot where venting regulations short circuit a number of fried dishes. Counter Culture Coffee is the exclusive supplier for the Arlington outlet, and it’s likely the relationship will extend to the new restaurant.
Guas was an associate pastry chef at Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans before coming to DC in 1998 and to the pastry kitchen of DC Coast. After a decade of developing dessert menus as corporate pastry chef for Passion Food Hospitality, Gaus opened the rustic and acclaimed Bayou Baker in the Courthouse neighborhood of Arlington. He is the author of a popular dessert cookbook: DamGoodSweet – Desserts to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth New Orleans Style. He and his cooking has been featured in numerous print and electronic media outlets.
