Take a Look at the Elysian Bar’s Opening Menu

What’s on the menu at new arrival from the Bacchanal team

The much anticipated new project from the people behind wine-centric Bacchanal has been open about a week now.

Named The Elysian Bar, it’s part of the Hotel Peter and Paul in the Marigny, and takes over a stunning former Catholic church on Burgundy Street, and also features a coffee shop inside.

But the part-French, part-Southern food is likely to be as much of a draw, from chef Alex Harrell (formerly of Sylvain, and his own restaurnat Angeline). Some dishes, like mussels escabeche, chicken liver mousse, and a classic French omelet with duck egg have been teased — now the full menu is here.

Centered more around seafood and vegetables, it consists entirely of small plates, mostly at $15 or less — and mixes tradition (on dishes like chicken leg confit and msussels escabeche) with freshness and creativity on many of the vegetable dishes.

The Elysian Bar is playing coy about its interior — no photos have been published as yet, but that hasn’t stopped the Instagrammers, so here’s a small peek from the few people who have managed to snap some images.
