Seven Things You Probably Don't Know About Tableau

NoDef's M.D. Dupuy previews Dickie Brennan's Tableau, attached to Le Petit Theatre overlooking Jackson Square, and has much to reveal about the shy new megarestaurant that's, alas, still "working out some kinks" during their soft opening. Here now, Eater rounds up some facts you might not yet know about Tableau.

1.) Tableau won't be taking reservations until May 15.
2.) Louisiana's last Spanish Governor, Manuel Gayoso, once had a home on the actual site, but the actual building housing Tableau was built in the 1960s.
3.) The restaurant is not entirely white table cloths, opting instead for marble/wood topped tables in some dining areas.
4.) The pork and duck comes from Chappapeela Farms.
5.) One of the desserts, a lemon meringue parfait, is made with a sugar-substitute Malitol.
6.) Wine is tapped from a 19.5-liter container and served in a carafe/half carafe.
7.) Many cocktails feature cognac? Tableau hopes to amass a cognac collection similar to the extent of the bourbon collection at Dickie Brennan's Bourbon House? and are named in reference to the theatre.

4/30 UPDATE: Tableau isn't accepting online reservations until May 15, but they're currently taking reservations via phone. Also, wines are available by the bottle and via the carafe program.
