Our Story

Take one city steeped in tradition and fortified with a tenacious spirit. Combine it with a cross-cultural fusion of food and flavors built on the culinary history of seven nations that contributed to its unique flavor and what do you get? Restaurant R’evolution, offering modern, imaginative reinterpretations of classic Cajun and Creole cuisine. Located in the heart of the French Quarter at Royal Sonesta New Orleans, Restaurant R’evolution is a favorite for locals and visitors alike, featuring award-winning cuisine set in an atmosphere offering a dining experience that’s beyond compare.

This partnership also delved into Louisiana history, exploring the significant culinary contributions of each of the seven primary nations that inhabited the state, bringing raw ingredients from their native countries and cross-pollinating with their gastronomic traditions. The result will be a fresh and contemporary translation of Cajun and Creole cuisine, using Louisiana’s raw ingredients and building upon the history and traditions that define New Orleans.
