Gabrielle Restaurant

Twelve years after Hurricane Katrina, tonight is the night that Greg and Mary Sonnier are re-opening the beloved Gabrielle restaurant, a New Orleans institution where the cooking was considered fearless and the devotion to a certain duck dish was feverish.

The restaurant, formerly located in the Mid City, has new digs at 2441 Orleans Avenue just a block from Dooky Chase, Leah Chase’s venerable restaurant known for its collection of African American art, Creole cooking, and role in the civil rights movement. Gabrielle started taking reservations by phone last Wednesday.

Greg and Mary Sonnier shared the opening night menu with Eater NOLA, and — yes — the the famous duck dish, inspired partly by a family meal dish at K-Paul’s and by a classic French fry poboy with brown gravy, is still on the menu.

Without further delay, here’s a look at the opening night menu:
