Us Up North
The Us Up North Kitchen is not your typical restaurant. It is designed to be the hub for celebrating North Louisiana Cuisine. This will include pop-ups, cooking classes, culinary experiences and Us Up North retail products. Chef Hardette Harris created the official meal of North Louisiana, only the second official meal in the United States. It was passed during the 2015 Louisiana Legislative session and passed with 33 yeas and 0 nays.
She invites you to her table to enjoy a few dishes from the official meal to experience authentic food of the rural American south. The culinary experiences are designed to treat you like family. You will enjoy an old fashioned southern meal served family style and learn how to prepare hot water cornbread or pick and wash greens.
Up north we have our own flavors and cooking styles. It’s all about our fields and fresh waters. “Straight from the red dirt and fresh waters of North Louisiana, we offer you our soul in a bowl”.
