PREUX & PROPER
MODERN SOUTHERN CUISINE HITS THE FASHION DISTRICT
The term ‘southern hospitality’ refers to southerners’ particularly warm, sweet and welcoming nature—especially their knack for extending a gracious invite into their homes to weary travelers. And that’s the same charm and spirit that Preux & Proper, a New Orleans inspired Southern restaurant in downtown’s Fashion District, aims to embody as it welcomes guests into its lovely respite housed in a historic turn-of-the-century flatiron wedge building—formerly The Parish at Spring and Main.
Think of this Big Easy West as more Garden District than Bourbon Street, meaning it has charm, class and chic factor. A winning combination indeed when restaurateur Joshua Kopel teamed up with Chef Sammy Monsour.
“Everything fell into place when Sammy came on board,” says Kopel. “His food is the vehicle for our guests to experience the warmth of the Southern table.”
Walk into Preux & Proper’s ground floor bar and you will find yourself in a laid-back setting where cold libations—we’re talking frozen daiquiri bar—meets Southern bites. And upstairs in the dining hall is where the proper dining experience takes place.
