The Vintage opened the last week of April in the Magazine spot that previously housed Rue de la Course coffee shop with an all-day menu starting with coffee, pastries, and beignets before transforming into a wine bar with small plates by night.
Paul M. McGoey, founder and principal of OnePack Hospitality is behind the new restaurant and bar. His hospitality company also runs New Orleans Coffee and Legacy Kitchen.
OnePack lightly renovated the space with a full bar that meanders through the interior. The black and white tiled floor, mirrors on the walls, and light fixtures from Rue remain. Plenty of tables fill the space, plus there’s a lounge area with a leather banquette and a large ottoman made from a piano with severed legs.
Breakfast includes “next-level beignets” in flavors like matcha, and coffee (chicory, frozen, etc). The evening small plates menu includes everything from alligator poppers and boudin balls to spiked milk and cookies. The restaurant will add a large weekend brunch menu and a weekend late night menu soon.
Opening hours are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and until 2 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
