Broussard's highly-anticipated reopening is this evening, after new owners the brothers Ammari? Marv, Richy, and Zeid? also known as Creole Cuisine Restaurant Concepts threw down on a $1 million dollar renovation this summer in hopes of achieving ultimate Grand Dame status. The freshly landscaped courtyard is sure to be a hit in the cooler months. The restaurant's entry hall, once bedecked in antiques, is now streamlined and leads directly to the long Empire Bar, where Paul Gustings, turns out pre-prohibition cocktails including a slew of punches and a few modern drinks like an "improved" Pimm's Cup. New chef Guy Reinbolt will create Louisiana-inspired French continental cuisine (hello, Ostrich filet) including classical dishes, and luxurious tableside preparations of flambeed desserts and such.
