Kendal Duque & Emmanuel Nony

Sepia restaurant (123 N. Jefferson) is located right around the corner from Blackbird and Avec. Based on the incredibly smoky octopus and creamy pork rillete with bacon pistachio brittle alone, we have the feeling Sepia might just join these two spots as another local fave. In our opinion, it’s one of the best restaurant openings of 2007. Here’s an interview with Sepia’s owner Emmanuel Nony and opening chef Kendal Duque.
