Born in New Orleans, Executive Chef Aaron Burgau, began his culinary career working with some of the city’s most honored chefs, including James Beard Award-winning Susan Spicer (Bayona and Mondo), and local legend, Gerard Maras (Gerard’s Downtown). In 2006, he became the Executive Chef at Bank Cafe, and that same year was named one of the Top 5 “Chefs to Watch” by Louisiana Cookin’ Magazine. In 2007, he partnered with longtime friend and entrepreneur Leon Touzet, to open Patois. Patois’ menu reflects Chef Aaron’s commitment to fresh, locally sourced ingredients in classic French cuisine with a patois, or local accent.
