In May 2016, Chef Michael Isolani and developer Hugh Uhalt gave Maximo’s in the lower French Quarter a $1 million makeover into Trinity, which has quickly become one of the city’s most celebrated restaurants.

The multilevel indoor/outdoor restaurant covers 6,000 square feet and seats more than 100 guests. Designed by William Sonner Designs, Trinity features sleek, contemporary elements combined with old-world features, exuding an aura that is both sophisticated and comfortable.

Upon entering, guests are greeted by an expansive marble bar with dramatic ambient lighting set against a backdrop of exposed brick. A wraparound food bar seating 17 and elevated leather and marble banquettes overlook the open kitchen, allowing guests to watch chefs as they create a variety of New Orleans-inspired dishes like crawfish and fontina beignets with tarragon aioli, frog leg tempura with cilantro ponzu sauce, and foie gras torchon with blood sausage.
