Breakfast cafe expands to Uptown
Mid City breakfast spot Wakin’ Bakin’ has opened a location in Uptown, taking over the space most recently occupied by Coulis, and before that by the much-loved Bluebird Cafe. The Uptown address (3625 Prytania Street) features the same menu as Mid City’s location, opened in 2013 by Conrad Chura and Zak Pizzeck after a year of popping up at the Holy Ground Irish Pub. The new Wakin’ Bakin’ will be open 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily.
See Gabrielle’s new lunch menu
Post-Katrina comeback restaurant Gabrielle now serves lunch, offering weekly off menu specials like Sicilian stuffed artichokes, oyster and artichoke soup, and fried green tomatoes with lobster thermador sauce. The restaurant was a darling for national critics and residents alike before being forced to close its doors after Hurricane Katrina. Owners Greg and Mary Sonnier reopened Gabrielle (named after their daughter) in Mid City last year and quickly reclaimed its former standing as a favorite among locals. Check out the full lunch menu below.
