Surprise! Bourrée Opens New Digs On Carrollton With a Cajun Butcher Shop

Boucherie's wing shack adds a butcher shop in former Cafe Nino space.

Well that was fast.  Newly-opened wing and daiq shack Bourrée has officially moved into permanent digs at 1510 S. Carrollton next to its mothership Boucherie, Ian McNulty reports this week, and it's now a Cajun butcher shop too. When chef Nathaniel Zimet and partner James Denio opened Bourrée in their former Boucherie space (8115 Jeannette Street) back in May, they simultaneously announced plans to move the restaurant into the former Cafe Nino space by the end of summer, along with adding hot boudin and more sexy meats.

Well, the new Bourrée has quietly opened with a menu of wings, fries, boiled peanuts and other snacks, fresh fruit daiq machines, Cafe Nino's old juke box, some impressive antiques, and a butcher case full of Zimet's finest, sourced from Chappapeela Farms and available by the pound for take-away:

Bacon and country hams, pork flank steaks, trotters and headcheese, plus the boudin and cracklin... There's also Wagyu brisket... duck confit, smoked chickens (and smoked fried chicken salad) and terrines.

Sounds like there are also plans for some of those meats to be served in-house (and at Boucherie, naturally) and there are 14 taps for beer, wine, and cider that should be hooked up by next week.

With this anticipated switcheroo, Zimet and Denio now have a full-fledged Cajun compound going on at the corner of Carrollton and Jeanette. Boucherie will remain in its sparkly new space (the former Cafe Grenada), with Bourrée operating next door, and both of the restaurants' former location (8115 Jeannette) now used for catering and private events.

Bourrée Hours: Tuesday-Saturday, noon to midnight. Sunday,  11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Phone: (504) 510-4040.
