New Orleans-born TV personality and celebrity chef, David Guas, is known for his appearances on The Today Show, The Talk, and his role as host of Travel Channel’s American Grilled. Guas is a James Beard finalist for his dessert cookbook, “DamGoodSweet, Deserts to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth, New Orleans Style.” His counter-service community spots, Bayou Bakery Coffee Bar & Eatery [Arlington, VA] and the newly opened Lil’ B [Washington, DC] explode with sustainably sourced produce, both savory and sweet, with a focus steeped in his heritage and the rich culture of New Orleans and the South. Menu choices include Buttermilk Biscuits, Pimiento Cheese, Pressed Cubanos, BBQ Pork, BLT, Muff-a-Lottas, Gumbo, Jambalaya and confections like Southern Layer Cakes, Pies, Pralines, and his signature Beignets. Caffeine lovers get in line for artfully poured java from Counter Culture Coffee. Guas has earned praise from Food & Wine, Southern Living, The New York Times, and The Washington Post.
