Executive Chef/Owner

Scott Boswell’s star is rising with an élan elegance that is all his own.  The Louisiana native and chef/owner of New Orleans’ hottest restaurant, Stella!, has a vision of bringing his globally inspired flavors to markets where they are fully appreciated.

“My international experience has allowed me to create a style that captures the elegance of French, the simplicity of Italian, combined with Asian flavors and bold Creole accents,” as Boswell explains his unique approach. “My travels and explorations have added important layers to my culinary repertoire.”

A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America at Hyde Park, Boswell initiated his career with Chef Kevin Graham at the Windsor Court in New Orleans before embarking on a best-of-Europe search, where he credits Chef Pascal Morel in Salon de Provence, France, with his foundational techniques. His work in the kitchen of Enoteca Pinchiorri in Florence, Italy, solidified his reverent, sophisticated cuisine. Florence is where he started work with Masahiko Kobe, now known as “Iron Chef Italian.”

He returned to the U.S. with the opportunity to create world-class cuisine at a Montana resort.  This Big Sky experience added a new element to his culinary palate, and he felt it was time to take flight on his own by returning to New Orleans and opening Stella! in 2001.

Boswell’s relationship with Masahiko Kobe brought him to Tokyo in 2003, working at Kobe’s Restaurant Massa. Tokyo became a pivotal experience, bringing out a passion for honest and distinct flavors that sparkled with fresh clarity. Tokyo continues to lure Boswell as another source of inspiration.

A turn in the kitchen of La Rochelle allowed Boswell to work with “Iron Chef French,” Hiroyuki Sakai in 2004, as well as other fine international top chefs, including “Iron Chef Chinese,” Chin Kenichi.

Additionally, his pursuit of culinary excellence has led him to learn alongside many acclaimed chefs within the U.S.  Chef Jean-Georges in the Trump International Tower hosted Boswell as a guest in his kitchen in 2006. “Iron Chef Japanese” and current “Iron Chef America,” Masaharu Mirimoto, and Chef Eric Ziebold graciously did the same in 2007.

During 2008 and 2009, Boswell had the distinguished pleasure of working in Chicago with Chef Grant Achatz of Alinea, Chef Charlie Trotter and with Chef Jonathan Benno at Thomas Keller’s world-renowned restaurant, “Per Se,” in Time Warner NYC. He also spent time at Restaurant Daniel with Daniel Boulud, and at Tailor with Sam Mason.

In the New Year he’s jumped from the South at McCrady’s in Charleston, South Carolina, with Chef Sean Brock to the Northern laboratory of Chicago’s Moto with Chef Homaro Cantu.

Seeing his career in stages, Boswell considers all of these educational experiences evolutionary to his cuisine. It is the combined sage of his many mentors that inspires him like the brilliance of guiding stars.

He believes in what he calls his culinary destiny.  He endeavors to reach beyond the senses to create a culinary performance in everything he does.  Chef Boswell is all about “foods that shout with uniquely global voices.”

Managing Partner

Tanya Babiak Boswell was born in Plainfield, New Jersey and grew up in Orlando, Florida. While visiting New Orleans on business, her path led her to Stella! restaurant for respite from an exhausting day. As she sat alone, Boswell walked into the dining room and noticed the beautiful woman who would become his wife five years later. He instructed the bartender not to let her get away and proceeded to send her food hoping to get her attention. The plan worked. This introduction led to an intensive three month, long distance courtship which ultimately brought Tanya to New Orleans, giving up her mortgage banking career to enter the restaurant business. After five years of engagement and surviving the challenges of Hurricane Katrina, Tanya married Scott on October 19, 2007 and joined him in not only matrimony, but also in a flourishing restaurant partnership.

Tanya and Scott, along with an impressive team of employees, have set the new standards of culinary expertise in what has been deemed the “new” New Orleans. Her finesse and attention to detail has become a priceless asset to the successful operation of Stella! Mr. and Mrs. Boswell opened their second restaurant Stanley in historical Jackson Square in December 2008.

Manager & Sommelier

Alexandra Minton was born on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and, at the age of three, found her new playpen to be that of a restaurant dining room when her parents opened a small po-boy shop in Ocean Springs. Literally growing up among the hustle and bustle of a busy restaurant created in Alexandra a great love and appreciation for the industry that would remain with her throughout her life.

While pursuing a music degree at the University of Southern Mississippi, Alexandra played percussion professionally with numerous orchestras across the Southeast, but, in the hopes of maintaining a more consistent income, she began working at Robert St. John’s Purple Parrot Café in Hattiesburg. Taking her back to her roots, restaurant work was a natural fit. Finding herself spending more time reading about Chablis than Chopin and realizing her passion for food and wine, Alexandra began to focus more seriously on a career in the hospitality industry. Working at the Purple Parrot gave Alexandra the opportunity to work with an award-winning wine list and hone her skills on the dining room floor in an environment where hospitality was the driving force of service.

Eventually, Alexandra finished her music studies and, five years, one music degree, and hours of secret Court of Master Sommeliers studying later, Alexandra accepted a position as Manager and Sommelier at the Purple Parrot Café. There, she focused on creating incredible guest experiences, recognizing that the measure of a good restaurant lies far beyond delicious food and wine. The Purple Parrot’s attention to service only deepened her devotion to and love for the industry, and there she worked for over four years.

Alexandra returns to the South to join the management team at Stella! after a brief stint as sommelier at The Lion Restaurant in New York. She is excited to be in an environment that inspires, pushes boundaries, and promises to provide a backdrop for the continual pursuit of excellence in hospitality.
