Originally designed by famous Louisiana modern architect, John Desmond, the more than fifty-year-old mid-century modern medical clinic showed great potential for an upscale restaurant. The building was taken great care of by architects during renovations to keep some of the original elements intact.
When two local, well-known restaurant owners came together with a vision to bring an all-new American cuisine and experience to the area, One Thirteen came to life. Located in the heart of Downtown Hammond, the beautifully transformed space is modern and affordable while maintaining an upscale vibrant feel for all guests.
“ALL THESE LITTLE THINGS, IT’S NORMAL IN ITALY, BUT HERE IT’S SOMETHING TO APPRECIATE. ESPECIALLY WHEN I SEND OUT A HOUSE-MADE PIZZA. YOU TASTE THAT CRUST AND IT’S LIKE, OKAY, THIS IS SOMETHING SPECIAL, OR A FRESH MOZZARELLA SALAD THE WAY WE DO IT, IT’S SOMETHING SPECIAL.” —CHEF PAOLO CENNI, Country Roads Magazine
