Chef Darin Nesbit

A formally trained chef with years of experience in New Orleans’ best restaurants, Chef Darin Nesbit oversees the kitchen at Dickie Brennan’s Bourbon House.

His first professional experience came at Commander’s Palace under the tutelage of then Executive Chef Jamie Shannon. During his tenure, he was a key member of the culinary team that led Commander’s Palace to be named Outstanding Restaurant in America by the James Beard Foundation.

In 1997, Chef Darin joined Dickie Brennan at Palace Café. His focus on food presentation, his keen understanding of culinary technique, and his zeal for flavorful Creole cooking have made Chef Darin Nesbit an instrumental asset.  Chef Darin has been a fixture in the kitchen of all of Dickie Brennan’s restaurants ever since. 

Darin has been a featured chef at the revered James Beard House, the world renowned Cal-A-Vie Spa in Vista, CA, The Grand Hotel in Point Clear, AL, and has appeared on the Today Show.  He frequently conducts culinary demonstrations, and in the fall of 2010 became an instructor at the John Folse Culinary Institute.
