    ISAAC TOUPS

    Cooking food that’s closest to his heart has earned Chef Isaac Toups rave reviews at his restaurant Toups' Meatery. His style is the result of growing up in the heart of Cajun country and a decade of experience in Emeril Lagasse's New Orleans kitchens. Deep familial southern roots contributed to his unique “born and braised” approach that’s all about layering flavors. A 2014 & 2015 James Beard Semi-finalist for "Best Chef of the South," Isaac says, "All I have ever wanted to do is to offer my version of Cajun cuisine and to recreate the dining experience around my family's table."
