Tableau, 616 St. Peter
January, with theater reopening around March April, with theater likely opening after
A phone call to Dickie Brennan's upcoming Quarter restaurant, Tableau, confirms that the tentative opening date is now set for sometime in April. Dickie Brennan's group purchased over half of the historic Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carré building for $3 million in 2011, and the restaurant is slowly taking shape with Ben Thibodeaux? chef de cuisine at the Palace Café for four years? heading up the kitchen. The three-story 300+ seater, with a balcony overlooking Jackson Square and two floors of private dining, will no doubt spawkle in every which way: Check the gold leaf ceilings in the Library, the fancy pants cabinetry in the Wine Room and more beauteous renovations courtesy of Tableau's Facebook.
