Origami on Freret Certified Open

5130 Freret St., New Orleans, LA 70115
Phone: (504) 899-6532
Website: None
Status: Certified Open

With a pretty serious renovation and a total change in style, that building at the corner of Freret St and Valmont is now home to Origami after years as the seedy college and high school bar, Friar Tuck's. Tuck's had long had legal issues surrounding underage drinking at the bar and finally closed in January after a man was shot and killed in front. Almost unrecognizable in its place is this new sushi venture by veteran sushi chef Mitsuko Tanner, making Origami's opening the latest addition to what most local writers are now calling, ever so creatively, the restaurant row. Origami opened for dinner last night.
