Lagarde is inspired by Chef Jamie Adams' memories of enjoying his family's New Orleans cuisine. Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler! Now Open.
Lagarde is based on a family that gathered to enjoy delicious food and fun times. Memories of New Orleans home cooking.... get-togethers filled with barbeque shrimp, red beans & rice, oysters.... whiskey sours & peach daiquiris... the mission was and is to always let the good times roll.
Lagarde prioritizes community and aims to be a gathering place with a casual, yet elevated food menu and a great bar atmosphere. The fare, inspired by Chef Jamie’s love for both his family and the great city of New Orleans, boasts an incredible array of influences, past and present. The beverage program features a great bourbon selection, adult slushees & milkshakes, and classic New Orleans cocktails. Fun Fact: Lagarde is Chef Jamie’s grandmother’s maiden name. It also happens to be his middle name!
Lagarde was first conceived in my head 40 years ago. I was thinking about my first restaurant and what it would be all about - my mother’s incredible food.
Growing up as the youngest of five kids with parents from New Orleans, I was around food all the time, as my mom was an incredible cook and my dad loved to eat.
People are always asking where I am from and I love to joke that I am from the deep South.
