This is the last weekend to visit the Cookhouse as we know it.

Chef Pieter Sypesteyn's popular Creole and Cajun-inspired restaurant will close on Sunday for a week of interior renovations. It's slated to reopen with a new menu and general manager on Tuesday, September 3.

Sypesteyn, who opened the restaurant on Mistletoe Avenue in 2014, will celebrate the five-year milestone with a new logo and look, upgrading the interior with new flooring and paint and expanding the patio to wrap around the building.

Matt Garcia, a longtime Cookhouse employee and former sous chef, will take over as the restaurant’s first general manager. The eatery will also celebrate the milestone changes with a week of celebratory events, starting Sunday, September 8.

Since 2014, Sypesteyn has expanded his restaurant group to include NOLA Brunch & Beignets and Bud’s Southern Rotisserie. He was recognized as an International Chef of UNESCO Creative Cities in April, following an award-winning culinary performance in Parma, Italy.
