Roux, the Highlands restaurant started by chef and restaurateur Dustin Staggers that served New Orleans-style food, has closed, as of last Sunday, as reported in Insider Louisville.
Roux, 1325 Bardstown Rd., is the last of the restaurant concepts the Staggers has tried out in the last few years. He also briefly ran Rumplings and Epic Sammich Co., on Highland Ave, and America. The Diner. on Baxter Ave. He closed both within the last year.
Staggers made a name for himself as the chef at The Monkey Wrench, and then went out on his own, with a series of ventures, including Ten Tables, a pop-up fine dining concept that he ran with Griffin Paulin and others.
The Insider Louisville story refers to a podcast on Paulin’s blog site Kitchen Banter , on which Staggers talks about his career in restaurants, his pride in what he has accomplished, and his decision to take it easy for a while. He does not have any restaurant plans for the near future.
