New Mexican Restaurant Otra Vez Brings a Michelin-Recognized Chef to New Orleans
Otra Vez, a new Mexican restaurant from a high-profile New York-based chef, is slated to open next week in downtown New Orleans.
It’s the latest project from Akhtar Nawab, a chef who has been making his name known with contemporary Mexican restaurants.
Otra Vez is now scheduled to open Monday, April 15, at 1001 Julia St. It is in the Standard, a new apartment building in the South Market District development complex.
The restaurant has been quietly taking shape in the ground floor of the building, at the corner of Julia Street and O’Keefe Avenue. Flanked by tall windows, Otra Vez has an, open dining room under high ceilings, centered on a long bar.
