New Restaurant Coming to Old Town
Lisa Monti's got the mouth-watering story on a new restaurant that's opening on Main Street this spring.
- from Lisa Monti's Notebook
Restaurateur Jourdan Nicaud, Field’s brother, said this will be the first restaurant the 23-year-old Field will be opening. It doesn’t have a name yet but “the goal is to open up around the beginning of April,” Jourdan said.
He said Field has been studying and working for the past two years in New York where he attended the Institute of Culinary Education and worked at the storied 11 Madison Park and La Nacional. Just this week Field worked with Jose Garces in the Iron Chef’s Philadelphia restaurant.
Jourdan Nicaud said the new restaurant’s steaks will be aged in house and hand cut and sell for $20 and up. Field is working on the menu’s specialty oyster recipes and Jourdan said he hopes to serve locally harvested oysters.
Jourdan owns Charred, a steakhouse/oyster bar in Ocean Springs, Bacchus on the Beach in Pass Christian and Biloxi, and Fill-Up with Billups breakfast/brunch restaurants in Biloxi, Jackson, Oxford and one opening next month next to his Hotel Pass Christian.

Watch the thirty-second trailer for Inside Out
Like many popular home shows, Inside Out invites viewers into upscale houses for video tours. But Lemoine-Raymond has added an interactive twist: viewers are shown three exterior views of the houses and three interiors. The viewer has to guess which ones match up, which they’ll be able to do online with Facebook.
Lemoine-Raymond says that working with the HGTV crews inspired her to find creative new ways to sell property on the coast and led to the production of the series. She assembled her own production crew who wrote, filmed and edited the first episodes over the past six months.
Twelve episodes will make up the first season of Inside Out. Six have already been produced. Later in the year, six more episodes will be completed. The most expensive house that’s being featured is nearly a million dollars, with the least expensive in the mid-200 dollar range.
Each episode ends up with a short DIY segment by Lemoine-Raymond, or a real estate tip from one of her guests. While the properties featured on Inside Out are all HL Raymond Property listings, the broker says the entire Mississippi coast should benefit.
“The series and its companion social media campaigns give us an opportunity to introduce this area to new audiences,” said Lemoine-Raymond.
The broker does double-duty on Inside Out, acting as both the show’s host and director.
“I’m there in the cutting room for every single episode,” she said. “It’s so exciting to see the vision come to life.”
The Premiere Party will take place on Saturday, January 12, 5pm - 8pm at Dan B's Restaurant, 109 S. Beach Boulevard, Bay St. Louis. Meet cast and crew while seeing a sneak peek of the first episode that will air the following night. Dr. Rock Band will perform after the party. Donations for Friends of the Animal Shelter will also be accepted.
