Lubbock, Texas – The American restaurant scene is undergoing a revolution, and many of its new competitors are not only taking the fight to them but also are challenging traditional American tastes.
The trend is especially apparent in Texas, where restaurants that are established by Americans or were founded by Americans are expanding their menus, offering more options and raising their prices.
For example, the popular New Orleans restaurant Gourmet is expanding its menu to include a “Bistro-Americana” menu that is more expansive and offers more menu items.
The trend has also caught the eye of the restaurant industry, which is starting to realize the importance of offering fresh, locally sourced ingredients and menu items in an effort to help restaurants grow in the United States.
Lubbocks restaurant industry leaders are hoping to capitalize on this trend, with the goal of expanding their marketshare.
The Austin-based New Orleans-based Gourmet opened in April, but in the past two months it has added about 20 new locations, including new ones in Houston, Dallas, Dallas-Fort Worth and Austin.
The company’s new locations in Dallas include a restaurant at The Bistro and a bar at The House.
“Our goal is to be in every corner of the country, which includes every city in Texas,” said Gourmet executive chef David Fournier.
“We’re really excited to open in Lubbocking.”
New Orleans restaurant owners, including the owners of the Bistrot, have also made a big push to keep their restaurants in Texas.
“Our mission is to open a restaurant that will make us a destination, not just a destination,” said New Orleans chef David A. Lebouche, who also serves as executive chef at the Bierkuche Restaurant.
“The New Orleans experience is so much richer than anything else.
We want to keep it that way.”
The Bierks have already expanded their menus by adding a bar, which will offer a menu of traditional New Orleans favorites, including shrimp cocktails, seafood tacos, a salad and a burger, as well as new items such as a cheesesteak and a beef short rib burger.
“I can’t wait to share my menu with the world,” Leboulche said.
For now, though, the focus is on Texas.
LeBoulche, A.J. Ceballos and other New Orleans restaurateurs are taking advantage of the booming tourism industry in the Lone Star State, which has become the number one tourist destination in the country.
LeBrons restaurant will be located in the downtown district of Lubbons, where there are a number of upscale hotels and apartments.
“It’s an opportunity to connect with our fans, to create a fan base that we can count on,” LeBouche said of the new location.
The Bistros, meanwhile, are looking to expand their menu and the quality of their products.
“Texas is going to be our number one,” Ceballs said.
“A lot of us were raised in Texas and we’re here to stay.”
Read moreNew Orleans-style cuisine has gained a lot of popularity among tourists, especially during the holidays and spring break, as they celebrate their birthdays and birthdays of their favorite celebrities, like Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and others.
For some restaurants, this is a good thing, as New Orleans is home to a number cultural institutions, including restaurants that have been on the national scene for generations, like the French Quarter and New Orleans Square.
New Orleans restaurants are starting to embrace this trend.
For instance, the restaurant chain La Merced recently opened a restaurant in New Orleans.
The restaurant is located in a historic district called St. Louis Square, where many of the area’s restaurants have been.
It is known for their authentic cuisine and the food is fresh.
The menu features a menu featuring fresh ingredients and is currently available at La Merce.
The restaurant will have its own kitchen, which allows for the creation of new menu items, including a menu that will include a new cheesesteaks menu item.
“We wanted to add something new to our menu, something that was something unique to New Orleans,” said La Merces founder and owner of the New Orleans Bar, Mark Perna.
“So we’ve brought in some of the chefs who have been working in the French-American restaurants in L.A., New York and Chicago.”
“We’re very excited to be opening a restaurant called La Mercing, a place where we will have authentic New Orleans food, where we’ll be able to really celebrate the city,” Pernas added.
The new restaurant will feature a menu made up of more than 100 dishes, all of which will be made from fresh ingredients.
“It’s a new style of cooking,” said owner and owner-operator of La Merci, David Arent.
“You’re not going to find a menu in New York or Chicago with that much variety.”
