Locally owned and operated Brown Butter Restaurant has shared some unfortunate news this post-Jazz Fest Monday morning. After opening in 2015, Chef Dwayne Womax and Simon Beck are closing the doors to Brown Butter on May 27, 2023 due to building renovations for a medical center.

In a post on Facebook, the restaurant shared that they were informed by the owners of the building that “an agreement had been finalized to convert the Brown Butter space into a medical facility.” Though they tried to transition to another location, they have not been fruitful in finding a new space. 


In 2014, the groundwork for Brown Butter was laid out, and in January 2015, the Chef/owner duo opened their doors. Their menu was always creative and rooted in Southern culture using fresh seasonal local ingredients.
