NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Uptown neighborhood taco stand and margarita garden Barracuda will open its second location in Algiers Point on the West Bank today at 446 Pelican Ave. Barracuda was founded by Brett Jones in March 2019 with a focus on accessible and easy-going dining. His decision to open a second location in Algiers Point was driven by its strong sense of community and storied history.
The new Barracuda outpost will offer walk up counter service, and extensive shaded and covered patio seating across from Confetti Park. Expect all the classic menu staples, including the beloved Deluxe customization (with griddled cheese & guac), cocktails to stay or to-go, as well as a takeaway menu that includes family-style meals, packaged flour tortillas, and fresh salsas.
“At Barracuda, the most important things to us are community and quality- so we are thrilled to be opening in Algiers Point, where the location and the neighborhood really made the choice easy,” shared founder Brett Jones. “Our goal has always been to provide high quality tacos & margaritas in a way that is easy and accessible for anyone, so we hope that by bringing our hand-crafted tortillas and tacos to Algiers Point, we fit in seamlessly to an already incredible neighborhood and space.”
Hours for Barracuda Algiers Point at 446 Pelican Ave. are 11:30 a.m. – 9 p.m. Tuesday – Sunday.
