Good news for those of you hoping to try Tableau without spending a small fortune: Judy Walker reports that Dickie Brennan's new mega-restaurant attached to the Le Petit Theatre Vieux Carre, is now serving a pretty affordable all-day bar snack menu on the balcony.
The Tableau crew has a happy-hour in the works, but as per the bar menu, it features snack-sized servings of Creole classics (Shrimp Remoulade, Broiled Oysters en Brochette) in the $8-$12 range. Drinks hover more at Quarter pricing: $10-$12 for signature cocktails, and $5-$6 for craft beers, though the wines look like more of a steal at $6 a glass. And while, yes, it's hot as hell out, the balcony is normally shaded by late afternoon (4 p.m.), and it has amazing views of Jackson Square, plus St. Peter and Chartres Streets.
