Meet Our Chef


Our Chef, William Goldsmith, has been perfecting his craft for over 30 years. Today, he lends his superb talents to Cafe New Orleans in Fredericksburg, VA. Cafe New Orleans serves fantastic cajun and southern inspired cuisine in its William Street location. But Executive Chef Goldsmith is the true talent that makes this restaurant excellent. Originally brought on to manage Spirits on Caroline Street in Fredericksburg, Chef Goldsmith’s inspiration comes from extensive research on the deep south, and from his love of hearty, homestyle dishes.

You’ll experience a different side of the south when you come here. Expect all the traditional cajun, creole, and Louisiana dishes you love with an emphasis on a hearty homestyle experience. Combine that with a casual atmosphere, and you’ll find yourself at home in William Goldsmith’s kitchen.

William Goldsmith takes pride in serving great food at a reasonable price, and would like to invite Fredericksburg to come home to food that’s inspired by nothing other than good homecooking.
