Freddie’s Kitchen at the Cole is a culinary gem that will take your taste buds on a delightful journey. Nestled just north of the Uptown Design District, this charming restaurant offers a unique dining experience that combines exquisite flavors with a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Freddie’s Kitchen is the brainchild of Chef Frederic Pierrel, also known as Freddie. He is a passionate and talented chef who prides himself on creating dishes that are both visually stunning and bursting with flavor. With a focus on locally sourced ingredients, Chef Freddie creates each dish with care and precision, ensuring that every bite is a culinary delight.


Freddie’s Menu

The menu at Freddie’s Kitchen is a celebration of fresh and seasonal ingredients. He brings his trained French cuisine dishes and combines it with local flavors. From farm-to-table salads to mouthwatering entrees, there is something to satisfy every palate. He takes his inspiration from the flavors of France, California, and the globe. This creates dishes that are both familiar and exciting.

While the menu is deceivingly small, there are usually a few nightly specials to keep the menu fresh and unique. Start your meal with French Escargot a la Bourguignon, traditional French onion soup, or the house-made wild mushroom strudel.


For the main course, try the braised short rib bolognaise or the natural pork mignon. For the vegetarian, enjoy the grilled vegetable wellington with basil tomato jus. The menu frequently changes based on what’s in season. Freddie’s also offers a nightly chef’s special, like a Kurobuta port chop with morel cream sauce or a creamy seafood and wild mushroom risotto with shrimp, scallops, and mussels.

For dessert, save room for the French style dark chocolate mousse or the Tahitian vanilla bean crème brule. The menu changes, so other delicious options might include apple tart Normandy or chocolate croissant bread pudding.

Whether you’re in the mood for a crisp white wine to complement your seafood dish or a robust red to pair with a pork chop, the knowledgeable staff is more than happy to assist you in finding the perfect libation.
