Jordan Swiler, previously a sous chef under Adam King at the same establishment, replaces his mentor, who headed the kitchen for 14 years. King is planning to start his own endeavor in the western metro area, a release said.
“Chef Jordan’s creativity, drive and understanding of the property made him the perfect choice to lead the Lurcat team,” Michael Smith, director of operations for D’Amico & Partners said in part in the release. “He worked his way through the ranks.”
Cafe Lurcat and Bar Lurcat are also introducing a new menu that will be divided into three sections: “Market” – which will change frequently with revolving seasonal produce, “Traditions” – which will include old favorites and “Voyage” – themed items that change to reflect a different U.S. regional or international cuisine. The current "Voyage" theme is low-country fare, including dishes like fried chicken with biscuits and gravy and cornmeal-crusted snapper with an heirloom bean salad.
