Our family of restaurants and event spaces, like many families, is diverse in taste, style & personality. From quirky & bright to chic & subdued, our goal is always to provide every guest with a uniquely memorable experience. Our roots can be traced back to 2004 with the opening of Baileys’ Chocolate Bar in historic Lafayette Square. From there we opened Rooster Downtown (2006), Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar (2010), Baileys’ Range (2011), The Fifth Wheel Catering (2012), Small Batch (2013), Rooster South Grand (2014), Willow (2016), Slate (2016), Hugo’s Pizzeria (2017), and L’Acadiane (2017).
With a strong focus on seasonal ingredients, sourcing locally, responsibly-raised meats & sustainable practices, our team strives to stay true to our “farm-to-table” mission. Our chefs smoke whole hogs, bake all of our breads & pastries from scratch, and make every sauce & dressing… down to the catsup! And thanks to our small but mighty Micro-Farm - 14,500 square feet of hyper-productive garden space spread across four city lots surrounding our HQ - we tend to a variety of herbs, vegetables, flowers & even a collection of bee hives, for use in not only our dishes but community education as well.
Cheers to many more years of eating, drinking & supporting all things local.
