After gigs in several well-respected Little Rock restaurants, David Bennett further honed his culinary skills at the Scottsdale Culinary Institute before opening Vieux Carre in January of 2006. David's parents and his wife Sarah greet patrons at the front of the house as he captains his culinary team as executive chef in the back, whipping up electric eats inspired by the cooking of New Orleans’ French Quarter, which fuses French, Italian, creole, and Cajun-style cuisine. Bennett serves his bistro fare in a historic Hillcrest space that was designed by lauded Little Rock architect Charles L. Thompson and once housed the Pulaski Heights town hall. Vieux Carre also hosts jazz brunches every Sunday, where feasts are paired with the jazz styles of Ted Ludwig on guitar and Joe Cripps on standing bass.
