A new gastropub Picayune Social House is heading to the CBD this November, Ian McNulty reports.
The bar will take over the ground floor of an apartment building heading into 326 and 330 Camp Street—formerly known as Newspaper Row. One of the historic buildings once housed the Daily Picayune and eventually the Times Picayune (thus the bar’s name).
Developer Chris Demers, a Nola native who consults and runs restaurants in Dallas, promises a four-sided bar, ample seating, and a casual atmosphere, including a ‘straightforward’ drinks program and newspaper-inspired design elements.
The kitchen will have a tandoor oven and plans to do naan and incorporate Indian flavors into a menu of sandwiches, flatbreads and more.
