NEW ORLEANS (press release) – After sold-out smashing successes for the Black History Month dinner series at Compère Lapin, Chef/Owner Nina Compton has just announced a special pop-up brunch with Gabe & Gray Confections, taking place on Sunday, Feb. 28, from 10:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. The month-long series that began Feb. 4, showcased the talents of some of the Crescent City’s brilliant black culinarians, and paid to the amalgamation of cultures and cuisine that have contributed to America’s black culinary community.

Available for dine-in and takeout, guests can enjoy an array of specialties created by Gabe & Gray Confections Pastry Chef/Owner Katelyn Ann James. Options are plentiful and include sticky buns, brownies, cookie butter, salted caramel, assorted cookies, macarons and a selection of mini pound cake loaves. Of course, Comptons’ savory brunch items will also be on offer including pork belly hash with fingerling potatoes, cabbage and sunny side up eggs; goat Bolognese with cavatelli and whipped ricotta; CL bagel tartar with Calabrese crema; and hot fire chicken and biscuit.

 Brunch at Compére Lapin wouldn’t be complete without creative cocktail concoctions. Priced at $12, libations sure to please include Bloody Marys; Mimosas; Brandy Milk Punch (bottled); Brunch Punch; and Frozen Daquiris. Those who prefer to enjoy cocktails at home can take them to go.

Reservations are required and capacity is limited, so guests are strongly encouraged to book early!
