 A native of New Orleans, Chef Phillip Lopez was born into a military family, traveling the world in his youth. Spending time in Germany, France, Spain, Austria and parts of Asia, Phillip Lopez's international worldview influenced his palate as a chef. He returned to his New Orleans roots in 2004, working at Chef John Besh's flagship, Restaurant August--he spent a cumulative 6 years under Besh's tutelage before and after Katrina- with a stint at Michel Richard's Citronelle in between. Chef Phillip Lopez sought to escape the confines of traditional French Creole cuisine without forfeiting the DNA of its cherished past. Sensing a stagnation in the New Orleans food scene, he decided to venture out on his own in 2009.

Rebel Restaurant Group was born from the idea to always defy the norm, breathe fearlessness into every plate, inspire the next generation of cooks to be free with their creativity and to help evolve New Orleans's everlasting cuisine.

Chef Phillip Lopez is the Executive Chef, Creative Director and Owner of six culinary concepts in New Orleans, Louisiana.

 


Food is our common ground, a universal experience

ROOT is located at 1800 Magazine St., in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans, LA and sits directly above Square Root on the second floor.   It opened in November of 2011 to great acclaim gaining Best New Restaurant in New Orleans Magazine and Top 50 Best Restaurants in the Country by Bon Appétit Magazine all within the first year.   It recently moved from its original location of 200 Julia St. to it's newer digs at 1800 Magazine in May of 2016.  ROOT continues to push the boundaries of technique, flavor and execution, utilizing Louisiana's seasonal harvest while giving praise to each individual ingredient.  ROOT is defined by inception, birth and beginning.  It is Chef Phillip Lopez's "inception" of a lifelong dream to own a restaurant that evolves a new generation of chefs in New Orleans, the "birth" of an idea on progressive Louisiana Cuisine and the "beginning" of a revolution to always strive to be better than the day before in food and service.

The Test Kitchen is a multifunctional space located adjacent to Square Root and Root.  It has direct access from ROOT on the second floor but also has its own private street entrance located at 1804 Hastings Place.  The Test Kitchen was designed for two reasons:  to be an oasis for our chefs to help develop the next generation of food for New Orleans and to be unlimited in one's ability to research, test, experiment and create.  When not being used for research and development, The Test Kitchen is converted into a private dining space with a max accommodation of 30 guests for sit down dinner or 50 guests for a cocktail reception.  The Test Kitchen space can also be combined with ROOT's space to expand seating an accommodate more guests and a larger scale experience.  Each event is curated by Chef Phillip L. Lopez and the Square Root team with the single idea to create memorable and extraordinary events showcasing modern technique coupled with southern hospitality.

 Parisian Bistro

Petit Lion


 Parisian Bistro

Petit Lion is Chef Phillip Lopez's interpretation of a Modern Parisian Bistro located within The Troubadour hotel at 1111 Gravier St. in the Central Business District of New Orleans, Louisiana.  There is a distinct feeling you get when you walk down the streets of Paris and see the Architecture, feel the stone underneath your feet and smell the food and coffee in the air.  New Orleans has so much in common with the senses of Paris, it just seemed natural to create a concept that gave praise to New Orleans' past while defining its future.

Monkey Board is located on the 17th floor rooftop of the Troubadour Hotel at 1111 Gravier St.  It is a food truck inspired fare and atmosphere without the actual food truck.  Come have fun, throw a party, grab a bite to eat and share some large format cocktails.  Even though we like to let loose, there still is "no monkey business" when it comes to the food and drinks!
