NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Broussard’s Restaurant & Courtyard, in partnership with New Orleans Fish House and French Quarter Festivals, Inc. (FQFI), is serving meals to local musicians and Broussard’s employees as a kickoff to its reopening. Broussard’s was scheduled to sponsor the American Roots stage located inside the New Orleans Jazz Museum as part of its culinary lineup sponsorship of French Quarter Festival. In honor of that sponsorship, Chef Jimi Setchim will prepare a to-go meal of fried catfish, shrimp fried rice, and cucumber and tomato salad for 400 guests. New Orleans Fish House is donating product for this event.
“I’m excited to be back in the kitchen—cooking and doing what I love,” said Setchim. “And it feels great that the first people I get to cook for since closing are our own employees and our beloved musicians. While they missed the opportunity to do what they love during French Quarter Festival, we look forward to hearing them again very soon!”
Broussard’s dining room will open to the public with limited seating on Saturday, May 16.
