The announcement was made this morning in New Orleans, Tramonto's new home-away-from-home, which had been the speculation for weeks. "Chicago will continue to be my home," he said in a statement.
The restaurant will serve contemporary Creole, a "marriage of Folse's classic Southern approach and Tramonto's contemporary New World style," a release says.
It appears there's more to come from Tramonto. Restaurant R'evolution will be the "first joint venture" between him and good friend John Folse, one of Louisiana's best known chefs.
