Madame’s Modern Kitchen + Bar

BOOZE FOR LESS — Starting July 5, Eater 38 restaurant, Arnaud’s, will pour bottomless Moët & Chandon for $25 with the purchase of an entree in the main dining room or jazz bistro. Add $10 to that and take home one of Arnaud’s 100th anniversary Champagne flutes.

Meanwhile, Brown Butter restaurant is throwing in two free pints of Paradise Park lager with purchase of any entree, burger, or sandwich this summer. Tuesdays through Thursdays. 21+ and you can’t combine it with other offers. [press release]

BRUNCHWIRE — Newbie restaurant Madam’s Modern Kitchen and Bar is launching its weekend brunch this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The brunch, on Saturdays and Sundays, included $15 bottomless mimosas and live jazz. The menu includes a tower of seafood (oysters, shrimp cocktail, crab salad), charbroiled oysters, chilled overnight oats, fried green tomato Benedict, avocado toast, and more. [press release]

RIP — Anthony Bourdain traveled the entire world, but kept coming back to South Louisiana. While people around the world mourn him, NPR finds South Louisiana mourning him more than others. [NPR]

Meanwhile, City Park officials aren’t surprised that Morning Call is suing them over losing its lease selling beignets in the Casino Building. [MID CITY MESSENGER]

OPENING ALERT — Hillbilly Bar-B-Q has reopened in its new spot focusing primarily on carry-out, just in time for Eater NOLA’s annual list of the city’s best barbecue. [NOLA.COM]

NEWS — The Eiffel Society is aiming to switch from an event hall to a bar, but neighbors already tired of loud, late-night parties aren’t too keen on the idea. Here’s the most interesting argument against it though: The Rev. Robert Belknap of Zion Lutheran Church, hears too many F-bombs in the middle of weddings. Apparently, the sound systems from the church and the Eiffel society sometimes use the same frequency. [UPTOWN MESSENGER]
