Mitchell started in the kitchen of English’s Magnolia House at Harrah’s Casino washing dishes, but under the tutelage of Chef English (2009 Food and Wine Magazine’s Best New Chef of the Year), and years of hard work, he rose to the rank of executive chef. So, when chef of his caliber opens a new restaurant, foodies all over the Coast should take note.

The restaurant is located in the welcome center of the Ohr-O’Keefe of Art on in Biloxi. It’s a large space, with high ceilings and lots of glass, so the vibe is open and airy. Before or after you dine, check out the Frank Gerry-designed campus, including five pods, each with a…

Chicken and Dumplings Save the Day


by Julian Brunt, Our Mississippi Home
