NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Chef Nathanial Zimet of Boucherie has launched a new happy hour every Tuesday through Saturday from 5 – 6 p.m. at his recently reopened establishment. The happy hour specials include $5 select house red and white wines by the glass, $1 off all draft beers, and a $7 Old Fashioned or Sazerac. Zimet is also offering a “Geaux Local” special for $8, which features a local draft beer and fries. Draft beers change regularly to support local brewhouses. During happy hour, food specials include mussels for $10, boudin balls for $5, and French fries for $4.

Boucherie recently underwent a renovation to expand the outdoor dining space. The new, larger area features a permanent covering surrounded by trellises growing new evergreen wisteria vines, picnic tables, and benches. “With the anticipation of cooler weather and football season ahead, we look forward to seeing our regulars and new friends join us on the patio for happy hour,” said Zimet. “Draft beers and snacks will change with the season, but the atmosphere is always laid back and festive.”
