Chefs/tv people/bffs John Besh and Aarón Sánchez have announced plans to open a restaurant together in Besh's home base of New Orleans. According to the Times-Picayune, Johnny Sánchez will be a taqueria that will "marry Sánchez's deep knowledge of Mexican cooking with Besh's focus on using high-quality local ingredients." The restaurant is expected to open this Fall.

If the concept sounds familiar, it's because Besh and Sánchez are also planning to opening a Johnny Sánchez at a casino in Baltimore. The Horseshoe Balitmore location will open first and is slated for August. It will be filling out a restaurant lineup that includes a new Guy Fieri spot.
