It's a pretty big step to open your own place, particularly when your concept is a Mekong Delta-meets-Mississippi Delta joint in Mid-City. But, clearly, for former Restaurant August chef Michael Gulotta, it's a step worth taking. Gulf Coast ingredients are tossed with house-grown Asian herbs, sauces and spices to fantastic effect in dishes like fried oysters with nuoc cham mayo, addictive spicy chicken wings and a Saturday special of whole cochon de lait. Plus, they have a killer cocktail menu.
