Rebecca Wilcomb moved to New Orleans in 2008 and found an immediate home at Herbsaint. After working the line under Chefs Donald Link and Ryan Prewitt, Rebecca took over the kitchen as chef de cuisine in 2011. She maintained Herbsaint’s high standards while pushing the restaurant’s food to new levels. Wilcomb expands her scope through regular international travel and research, and through personal relationships with Gulf fisherman, area farmers, and local purveyors. Herbsaint has been named a “Top 10 Restaurant” by the Times Picayune each year of her tenure, and Wilcomb is an active member of the Southern Foodways Alliance. Wilcomb, alongside partner Donald Link, recently opened Gianna restaurant, a rustic Italian eatery.
