— Melissa Martin’s much-loved Mosquito Supper Club is bringing back its holiday brunch for the 2018 festive season. Her Dryades Street venue will serve a five-course Cajun brunch on Sundays complete with milk punch and live music — it’ll happen on Sundays from November 25 through to December 23.
— One year after its grand reopening, staple bistro Gabrielle is (slightly) expanding its offerings. The restaurant, known for its duck and its peppermint patty will open for lunches on Fridays, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., with reservations accepted.
— There’s a new app in town for tracking and ordering from NOLA’s food trucks. Named Nomad, it launched last week, and allows customers to pre-order and pay for food truck meals, meaning they can skip waiting in line.
— Speaking of apps, the Crescent City Farmers Market now has its own app for both iOS and Android devices, which will allow shoppers to browse groceries available at its various markets, as well as purchase and pay on their phones, to then pick-up later. 20 vendors are on the app right now, with more to come.
— Looking for large quantities of feline-themed kawaii Japanese cartoons with lashings of soft pink? The official Hello Kitty truck is rolling into Metairie’s Lakeside Shopping Center this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., bringing cookies, popcorn, a petit fours set, macarons, and a large amount of cutesy merchandise.
— The Bal Masqué returns on January 19, featuring chefs Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewski, joined by Andrew Carmellini, dropping into town from New York brasserie Lafayette and Italian restaurant Locanda Verde, among others. Tickets are already on sale, starting at a cool $300.
