Our head Chef, Wes Landry, hails from the heart of Cajun country, growing up in a family with extensive experience in seafood and restaurants that supplied him a background which ordained kitchen stardom. In the mid 90’s, during enrollment at Delgado CC culinary school in NOLA, Chef Wes trained and worked at legendary New Orleans eateries, including Mr. B’s Bistro, Drago’s and Pascal’s Manale. Following graduation came apprenticeship under Chef Tory McPhail at the Commander’s Palace, where he honed his talent and earned promotion to sous chef. During the “marinating” of his craft he also enjoyed the privilege of cooking at the famous James Beard House in New York City. Indulged with a host of opportunities, Chef Wes moved seamlessly from seated restaurants to banquets and private parties. First at the Pere Marquette Hotel and later at Pat O’Brien’s, he sharpened the skill set necessary to plan, prep and execute events of every size. Ultimately, this tremendous wealth of experience served as preface and hors d’oeuvre to his becoming head chef at the Balcony Ballroom, New Orleans premier wedding venue and reception destination.
