Donald Link Opens Peche Seafood Grill at 800 Magazine St.

Donald Link and Ryan Prewitt, the executive chef of the Link Restaurant Group, recently opened Peche Seafood Grill at 800 Magazine St. The new restaurant has a raw bar, but fish, grilled and baked over oak and pecan wood, is the main focus.


The restaurant is housed in a late 1800s building at the corner of Julia and Magazine Streets that was marketed by Hayden Wren. The Link Restaurant Group worked with the architect Peter Trapolin to make the space modern while at the same time restoring its original 19th century feel. Link, who is actively involved in the design, told the Times-Picayune that the restaurant would have high ceilings, large windows, and a cypress bar.
