Rick Tramonto to unveil new project next week in New Orleans

| No Comments

As expected, Rick Tramonto's next project is taking him (has already taken him) out of Chicago. And we're not talking fast-food salads.

An email invitation received yesterday announced a "culinary revolution" Tramonto and his good friend and respected Louisiana chef John Folse will unveil at 10 a.m. Wednesday in the historic Cabildo building in New Orleans.

Tramonto announced his departure from Tru restaurant in Streeterville in June and has dropped a hint or two on his Twitter feed as to his next big thing (he also announced next week's press conference this way).

His allegiance to the Gulf region was furthered in late June when, at the suggestion of Folse, he organized a bunch of famous chefs, including Top Chef's Tom Colicchio, to tour the region promoting the message that Louisiana seafood is safe to eat.
