McNulty Notes More Changes Happening on Tulane Ave

Ian McNulty talks Tulane Avenue redevelopment this week— including a look inside newly opened craft cocktail stunner Treo— as the area prepares for the upcoming gigantic, obviously robot-in-disguise hospital to take shape along with a planned streetscape revamp. Still, Pizzicare co-owner Jeff Baron tells McNulty that the neighborhood's progress hasn't been as fast as they hoped for since opening back in 2011. It has picked up a bit in the past few months with big openings, Treo and Namese, and likely will continue to grow after the planned $10 million streetscape project narrows six lanes to four, with a larger neutral ground and bike lanes. Treo's owner Pauline Patterson expresses some other trepidation about redevelopment: "We don't want it to be all strip malls."

Meanwhile, Avery's Po-Boys, opened by Christy and Justin Pitard in 2012, are planning to "add kitchen staff and develop their restaurant's bar" because business has been booming. And, lastly, a switcheroo: On-I Sports Bar has been upgraded/reopened as Tulane Avenue Bar (3813 Tulane) with owner Bertrand Washington telling McNulty it's primarily a gay bar. [Advocate]
