Last week, Eater heard rumors that this was the case, but a press release sent out yesterday afternoon makes it official: René Bistrot will open on May 15, which just so happens to be a week from today. The long-awaited return of René Bajeux's restaurant, which never reopened after Katrina and the federal floods, is taking over the LaCote Brasserie space inside the Renaissance Arts Hotel in the Warehouse District.
For those who just can't wait for the restaurant to open and who have (or are) mothers, Bajeux is giving a sneak peek at the restaurant with a Mother's Day Brunch. That's this Sunday, May 13, from 11 to 5. The meal is $50 for adults, $15 for kids 6-12, free for kids under six. Call (504) 613-2350 for reservations.
