N.O. talent among "Best New Chefs" in the country

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - You don't need to go far to enjoy a meal prepared by one of the best new chefs in the country.

Food & Wine magazine has named Compere Lapin's Nina Compton one of this year's best new chefs. She is among a group of 11 other chefs to share the same title.

Compere Lapin's website indicates Compton believes "in the complexity of simplicity, and the power of pure flavors."

Compton has a shot at winning another award later this year. She's a finalist for a James Beard Foundation award for Best Chef: South.
