Description: Peche Seafood Grill. In French, "peche" means "catch." Inspired by trips to Spain and Uruguay, Peche will focus on seafood cooked over an open wood fire. Diners can watch as the seafood, along with meats and vegetables, cooks over the flames. The dishes, though, will still be rooted in Louisiana. The restaurant is a partnership between chefs Donald Link (Herbsaint, Cochon), Stephen Stryjewski (Cochon) and Ryan Prewitt, although Prewitt will have primary authority over the new kitchen. Housed in a restored 19th-century building, Peche will share the modern aesthetic of Cochon. According to the Link Restaurant Group, the restaurant will have "high, pickled-wood ceilings; large, soaring windows; a thick-topped Cypress bar; and a marble top oyster bar."

If you like Couchon, this is its fish relative. Fabulous dinner, late night, great bar (you can eat there without a reservation). A Mecca for fish lovers and late eaters.

“Great food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

The martinis were on the warm side (ouch) but the wine list was comprehensive and not endless (nice). Whole grilled redfish was very good, although the drum beat it. We had a 6pm and the place was full by 6:15p. Good vibe. All in all a nice experience in the up and coming warehouse district in NOLA. Recommended.

“where is the bread????”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

On our way to dinner at Root, we stopped at Peche because they have that delicious Albarino wine from the Galician region of Spain. It was very warm yesterday and a cold, crispy and not old and not young wine was what we wanted.

One bottle for two on the way to the restaurant was a bit too much, considering that for sure we were going to have red wine with our dinner.

I asked for bread and guess what? the restaurant, since its birth, about 5 months ago has not incorporated bread to the menu!!

The OWNERS have reached the conclusion that if a guest orders bread or eats it with the meal, the bread fills the tummy and there is no room for anything else...or appetizers or something sweet for after the meal.

When the mighty $$$$$$$$ $$$$ $$$$ is all the owners think about, it is their birth right not to have bread and it is my birth right not to go to that restaurant again. And I will not return!

And for the Albarino....I can find it at a wine store here in New Orleans!! The bottle was $40 and our server,was a very nice young man. Nothing wrong with the server or the wine and everything wrong with the avaricious owners.

Our visit to Peche was yesterday, Nov. 1, 2013.

Ciao Peche!!!

“Don't miss the oyster bar at Peche Seafood Grill”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

I was delighted to eat at Peche twice in one trip. I discovered it by a referral from a fellow conference traveller who said she just finished a delighful meal of oysters and champagne to end her gastronomic extravaganza that day...sounded good to me and she recommended seeing Sam and sitting at the oyster bar.

Later, i was sitting in the same seat she had been in according to Sam. What a delight - the homemade capellini with crab was out of this world - the secret is the crab-infused butter and the right amount of herbs/peppers. The oysters were more wonderful than I could imagine and the company at the bar was so warm and friendly, this Bostonian really appreciated feeling welcome.

So when my local NOLA girlfriend said that Peche was the hot new NOLA restaurant, I was not surprised. She had only been once before, and really wanted to return - and so did I!

I am so glad that the convention center area is really alive and kicking with fresh new fantastically delicious options.

“Terrific seafood choice in NOLA”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Located in the downtown business district this restaurant is part of a small chain of restaurants in New Orleans owned by Donald Link. The focus here is on seafood in all its varieties. The space is attractive, with are relaxed atmosphere. It does tend to get loud though as the surfaces are hard and do little to absorb sound.

The food is the star here. I started with local oysters. They were plump and delicious. For my main course I chose swordfish with a spicy polenta and broccoli, it was excellent. Finally I ended my meal with a key lime pie which was clearly made in house and had a tart flavor and crisp crust.

Overall an excellent choice if you are looking for seafood in NOLA.
