Chef Donald Link is the latest in a long line of world-class chefs to hone his chops in New Orleans, incorporating the city’s flavors and vitality into his cooking. Link is also the man behind the now-legendary Cochon (#22)Herbsaint is his more upscale (yet still fun and accessible) modern bistro, French and Italian-inspired yet still classically Southern. Standout dishes include butter-poached Gulf tuna with pickled chilies and mint; jumbo shrimp with tasso-stewed collard greens and grits; and slow-cooked lamb neck with saffron fideo and tomato confit.
