Chef Nathan & Erika Winowich

In the Know with Chef Nathan & Erika Winowich
We took a moment to step into the Foundation Room kitchen to get to know a little more about our talented husband and wife team behind all those delicious dinners and treats.

Did you meet on the job or before?
We met while working together. Erika was actually working in the front of the house and expressed an interest in cooking so, I started her one day a week on the salad/dessert station and who knew that it would lead to a career??

How long have you worked as a team?
We have been a team for 12 years.

What is your favorite food to cook?
Anything local or indigenous to our region.

What is the best thing about working as a husband & wife team?
Working as a team allows us to be together a lot. In this industry, if your spouse has a separate career it can be difficult to spend time together as the hospitality industry can be rather consuming.

What's your favorite memory about Foundation Room?
Getting married by Coco Robicheaux on the roof and having a huge party in the room afterwards.

Any final comments?
Our key to success - Erika is always right...ha ha. She is definitely the better half.

Mardi Gras Day Return to Top

Mardi Gras Day

Dwight is opening the room Mardi Gras day, 12:00PM-6:00PM. We are relaxing the dress code (nice shorts and tennis shoes allowed) so you have a clean place away from the crowds to grab to-go drinks and relax.

The room will not be open Ash Wednesday in observance of the holiday (and to give everyone time to recover from the festivities).
