A family-style dinner at Donald Link’s new Italian restaurant, Gianna, in New Orleans, Louisiana for four (4) people

Need an excuse to travel to New Orleans? Chef Donald Link, best known for giving New Orleans a taste of his native Cajun country, will soon open a new restaurant that draws its inspiration from a different Vieux Carre—in Italy. Gianna is scheduled to open in April 2019 in a grand new building at Magazine and Girod Streets called the Kalorama. The five-story, block-long building, with a mix of condos and retail, is part of a wave of new development now reshaping downtown New Orleans.

Gianna’s kitchen will be led by Rebecca Wilcomb, now chef de cuisine of Herbsaint. She will be executive chef and a partner at Gianna, named for her grandmother, who lives in the Veneto region of Italy. “She taught me how to cook but also how to eat,” Wilcomb said. “I want people to have experiences here the way I’ve experienced food in Italy.”

Four people can experience chef Wilcomb’s Italy and fabulous New Orleans all in one visit with the winning bid!
