ZOMG CAKE? Judy Walker at the Times-Pic has more on the very recently opened Pure Cake on Freret. Apparently in their first week or so of business, the best selling cake pop is white chocolate with salted caramel filling. Which. Sounds. Delightful. [TP]
EVENT PLANNING? This Sunday is the Fête de la Musique, a fundraiser for uptown's new French immersion charter school, the Lycée Français de la Nouvelle Orleans. Participating restaurants include Patois, Cochon and Taceaux Loceaux. Tickets are $25 in advance, available here. [NoDef]
MENU CHANGES? Uptown fine dining institution Commander's Palace is offering a special, seafood heavy menu called "A Passport to Creole Seafood." The special menu is available nightly, with a $95 price tag. No word on when it ends. [EaterWire]
FIRST WORD? Emily Smith at Fleurdelicious offers up the first reaction to Oak Street's new sushi place, Chiba, calling it "a charming addition to the New Orleans sushi scene." And speaking of Chiba, they're adding a new specialty cocktail tonight called a "Chiba-politian" Or maybe that's supposed to be Chiba-politan. [Fleurdelicious, Facebook]
