Josephine Estelle is an all-occasion osteria inside Ace Hotel New Orleans, combining the seasonal, craft-centric philosophy of Italian cuisine with the flavors of the American South.
Chefs Andy Ticer and Michael Hudman steer the ship at Josephine Estelle, and the menu is inspired by the dishes they grew up learning to cook with their big Italian-American families in Memphis.
In Tennessee, they've helmed the restaurants Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen, Hog & Hominy and Catherine & Mary's, along with neighborhood butcher shop Porcellino’s Craft Butcher; Josephine Estelle — named for each of their daughters — is the first venture to bring their award-winning culinary sensibility southward. Beyond Josephine Estelle, Andy and Michael are also at the head of all culinary programming at Ace.
Specializing in the housemade pastas and Italian dishes whose nuances they learned at the foot of their grandmothers, and the bright, vibrant flavors that drew Andy and Michael to New Orleans in the first place, Josephine Estelle is the product of an ever-evolving dedication and love for food and commitment to family.
