Duke LoCicero, who operated Cafe Giovanni in the French Quarter for 26 years before closing it in 2017, has taken over as executive chef at the newly-reopened N'Tini's Restaurant in Mandeville.

LoCicero said a new, revamped N'Tini's menu will be unveiled Wednesday (Feb. 7). It will include some of the popular Creole Italian dishes from Cafe Giovanni, including Oysters Giovanni, Eggplant LoCicero and Voo-Doo Shrimp. Many items from the original N'Tini's menu will still be available, including the N'tini Burger. "We're taking N'Tini's to a whole new level," said LoCicero, a longtime Mandeville resident. "They've never had an executive chef before."
