In 1990, three energetic and creative chefs, Hans Limburg, Gary Darling and Greg Reggio, joined together to form an experienced culinary and restaurant development team. The company's mission was clear: To develop and operate unique restaurant concepts and to provide a wide array of consulting services to the industry.
This trio of friends and seasoned restaurant professionals named their partnership Taste Buds, Incorporated.
One of their first conceptions, Semolina, is a casual contemporary restaurant devoted to the wonderful world of pasta. The first location in Covington, Louisiana opened in August 1991.
Semolina received national recognition from the respected industry publication Restaurants and Institutions and was named "Hot concept" in a special report by Nation’s Restaurant News. The Louisiana Restaurant Association named Taste Buds - Restauranteurs of the Year in 1994.
The Taste Buds created Zea in 1997 with their first location in Harahan, Louisiana. It immediately gained popularity within the community and acclaim from restaurant associations. From their award winning recipes and “Best New Restaurant” awards from Gambit Magazine Readers Poll and New Orleans Magazine, the Taste Buds had another hit on their hands. There are currently four locations in the New Orleans area. Zea Rotisserie & Grill also has locations in Lafayette, Louisiana and Mobile, Alabama with franchise locations in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Pensacola, Florida and Plano, Texas.
