NEW ORLEANS, June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- French Master Chef Rene Bajeux's new restaurant, Rene Bistrot, is now open in the space formerly housed by LaCote Brasserie at the Renaissance New Orleans Arts Hotel near Bourbon St.

Rene Bistrot's menu focuses on French-bistro-style cooking while providing a contemporary take on the traditions and ingredients of classic New Orleans cuisine. The menu is adjusted seasonally to take advantage of the delectable, locally produced ingredients from Louisiana's own farmers and ranchers.

"Rene Bistrot is a French bistro with an American passport," stated Chef Rene Bajeux. "We will be intersecting local ingredients and cooking styles, mainly from southeast Louisiana, with the classic French bistro and techniques representing the four regions of France: Bordeaux, Burgundy, Alsace and Provence."

Celebrated as one of New Orleans' culinary treasures, Bajeux has revitalized the space inside the Renaissance New Orleans Arts Hotel, renowned for its world-class New Orleans accommodations, after being part of the original LaCote Brasserie opening team.

Come by for an unforgettable dining experience; Rene Bistrot is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. To learn more about the bistro's seasonal menu offerings, or to make a reservation, visit the Rene Bistrot website at
