Behind the Scenes: The Restaurant R’evolution Kitchen

Spring is here, and as our excitement surrounding the upcoming grand opening of Restaurant R’evolution continues to grow, so does the collection of kitchen equipment that we’re eager to get down and dirty with. This suite of toys is stellar, and I’ve already begun testing things out amidst the construction. Here’s a peek into the tools that John and I and our team will be working with when we open.
J&R Rotisserie:
This rotisserie is a tank! Unlike a traditional rotisserie, our J&R is huge, heavy duty, and means business. At the restaurant, we will roast everything from whole pigs to salmon in this battleship-like machine.
 
Inside View
The Viking Kitchen Suite:

Thanks to our good friends at Viking, our kitchen boasts an incredible, 100% customized Viking suite. It looks amazing, and every detail is absolutely brilliant. Again, everything is heavy duty with Viking. I’m a longstanding fan and partner of Viking’s and have participated with them in their classic events and partnered on projects over the years. But, this is the first fully customized commercial kitchen I’ve worked with them on. I’m especially excited about the color – R’evolution Red. For a commercial kitchen, you’re not typically going to see customized colors and we’re proud to be one of the first restaurants to work with Viking in this capacity.

The Viking Smoker:
Part of the Viking suite, the smoker is where we’ll do all of our in-house smoking and curing, including everything on our dedicated charcuterie menu, as well as elements of various menu items across the board. We’ll be smoking any and everything— from salumi and bacon to pork shanks and pig’s tails— in this great multi-tasker.

Test run: 100 lbs. of pork shoulder ready to be smoked 
Aging Cases:

In addition to smoking everything in-house, we will also age all of our meats in our custom aging cases, which feature glass doors so guests can get an authentic look at the aging process as it happens. We’ll feature 25- to 28-day cuts, and everything will be on display in the Market Room.
The Wood-Burning Oven:
Living within our open exhibition kitchen in the Market Room, the wood-burning oven is an especially unique element for a New Orleans restaurant. I’ve used wood-burning ovens at my various Chicago restaurants and absolutely love them, so I’m looking forward to introducing this not-so-traditional element to New Orleans diners. Here we will cook whole roasted fish, mussels, small plates for Bar R’evolution, and much more.

Stainless Steel Refrigerators:
Unlike the typical “walk-in” fridges you find in most restaurant kitchens, our walk-ins have glass doors so you can actually see inside. Useful, cool, and very ‘L’Atelier Paris’ looking.
 


   
No secrets in our fridges
 
For now, we’re keeping busy finalizing construction, testing everything out, and putting the finishing touches on Restaurant R’evolution, from the front-of-house to the back. We expect our furniture to arrive next week, and then it’s down the old home stretch. Stay tuned to our Facebook page and Twitter feed for updates about our opening date – we hope to be able to share a firm date very soon!!

  12. Some consumers believe that buying kitchen units in an expert home cabinet company, getting range hoods in the technology store and buying basins and taps in an equipment store to mix them is cheaper. In fact, this technique is not necessarily cost-effective, since independently purchasing often can't enjoy the very best discounts from the vendors and you've to cover yet another installment cost to the kitchen cabinet companies https://brandedkitchen.com/product/hearts-flowers-female-wine-caddy/

  23. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your blog. It appears as if some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before. Thanks restaurant menus

  27. In buffets and restaurants, sneeze guards are used to display food items and prevent contamination of food and help to keep the food item fresh and free of pathogen. I always prefer CR Laurence's Sneeze guard hardware to fix the sneezeguard as they are beautiful and very easy to install.
