In a historic cotton warehouse that also once served as the nation?s western-most distribution point of alcoholic spirits, chef Cory Bahr, a 2012 Food Network?s Chopped! champion and 2011 King of Louisiana Seafood, honors his rural southern roots with down-home, no-nonsense panache at Cotton. His North Delta fare is the result of great resourcefulness, the deliberate and determined sourcing of the best possible, most local ingredients. Warm season dishes tend to be fragrant and delicate, looking toward Gulf seafood for inspiration; cool months bring slow-cooked earthiness, from smoky ham soups and richly herbed fowl to braised vegetables hailing from deep in southern soil. Year ?round, Bahr?s signature Duck Fat Fries and Original Muscovy Duck Wraps with a Local Honey Glaze remain menu constants ? by popular demand. Otherwise, the seasonal options might include Louisiana Alligator Corndogs with House Catsup, Bourbon Mustard & Turnip Kraut or Mississippi Rabbit with Slow-cooked Turnips, Braised Greens, Fennel Slaw, Golden Raisins & Smoked Bacon-Bourbon Sauce, given the availability of the right ingredients. Bourbon, the spirit linked historically to the premises, is still a mainstay of the house. Restaurant Cotton?s rugged vintage-warehouse atmosphere underscores the honest, old-fashioned goodness of it all ? and is a cornerstone of the revival of Bahr?s hometown of Monroe, Louisiana
