NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Broussard’s Restaurant is happy to announce its summer menu will begin on June 17th. The special summer pre-fixe menu honors the restaurant’s founding year, 1920, with three course selections for $19.20 from June 17 through Sept. 9. In 1920, just as Prohibition was beginning, Broussard’s opened in its historic Vieux Carré location with local Creole cuisine showcasing classic French dishes; today, nearly 100 years later, and Prohibition long since ceased, it continues the tradition with a refined blend of French and Creole influences and a celebrated bar program served in the renowned Empire Bar. In addition to culinary specials, the Empire Bar will offer a special cocktail each week for $1.92.
The pre-fixe dinner menu offers a trio of courses: starters, entrées and desserts. First course choices include Creole tomato gazpacho, Broussard’s Caesar, and cochon de lait rillette. Traditional main entrees are given a Creole twist: rosemary rubbed chicken breast, moules frites, grilled pork tenderloin, and Creole tomato ratatouille. To complete the meal, desserts include almond bread pudding, blueberry mint cobbler, and raspberry gâteau Basque. In addition to the pre-fixe menu, Broussard’s has an updated full menu, as well. Guests can choose from starters, soups and salads, a broad range of seasonal Gulf seafood selections and meat and poultry dishes.
Nearing a century of fine dining in New Orleans, Broussard’s is also celebrating with special pricing on wine and drinks. During Happy Hour, 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. in the Empire Bar, a robust selection of wines will be available for $19.20 per bottle and the following featured cocktails are only $1.92.
