Just a stone’s throw from the Mississippi River in the heart of Bywater in New Orleans, is Chef Nina Compton’s newest concept: Bywater American Bistro. For their new venture, Compton and husband/Partner Larry Miller have teamed up with longtime friend, collaborator and Compère Lapin Sous Chef Levi Raines who helms the American bistro as Chef/Partner. Since opening Compère Lapin in New Orleans’ Warehouse District in 2015, Chef Nina Compton has earned raves and accolades for her unique Caribbean-inspired Louisiana cuisine.
