The fine dining restaurant Gautreau's is situated in a lush garden spot in an uptown New Orleans neighborhood. The renovated former apothecary offers its guests distinctively elegant, yet approachable surroundings and a menu that is both inventive and down to earth. 


Gautreau's owner Rodney Smith was delighted by the similar faux-fabric effect created by Grahame in his son's home and commissioned him to work his magic in the restaurant post-Katrina. Grahame single-handedly created drama in the main dining room with his expert application of trompe l'œil to give the impression of billowing swathes of fabric adorning the walls.
