Named New Orleans’ 2016 Restaurant of the Year by The Times-Picayune, Chef Nina Compton’s Compère Lapin accentuates the beautiful and indigenous ingredients of the Gulf while melding the flavors of Compton’s Caribbean upbringing with her love of French and Italian Cuisine.
Compère Lapin [pronounced kom-pare la-pan and translated to “brother rabbit”] draws inspiration from Compton’s childhood in St. Lucia where she read traditional Caribbean folktales featuring a mischievous rabbit named Compère Lapin. Embracing the story’s themes of exploration and play, the restaurant features an inventive menu that celebrates Compton’s roots and the unparalleled flavors of New Orleans, earning Compère Lapin Four Beans by The Times-Picayune.
