The summer is just full of eating deals it seems. There’s the Heat Index Dinner
at Dickie Brennan’s Steakhouse and Temperature Lunch
at Palace Café. And there's one more great deal before the summer's over and done with.
For the month of August, New Orleanians will be able to eat their way through some of the finest restaurants in the city with the COOLinary New Orleans Restaurant Month
. From August 1-31, several New Orleans restaurants will be offering pre-fix lunch and dinner menus: $20 or less for 2 or 3-course lunch and $35 or less for a 3-course dinner.
Let’s take Commander’s Palace
, for example. Considering the normal prices at Commander’s
, the typical New Orleanian would be hard pressed to spend their money there. But the COOLinary
menu gives us normal people a little bit of a break. For the lunch menu, you choose an appetizer (turtle soup, creole gumbo, chef’s seasonal soup, The Commander’s Salad, or wild shrimp remoulade), and an entrée (chicken saltimbocca, griddle seared gulf fish, or cochon de lait “po’ boy”) for $20. For the dinner menu, you get the appetizer and entrée choices plus your choice of dessert (creole bread pudding soufflé, crème brulee, pecan pie, house made ice cream and sorbet, or praline parfait) for $35. In all honesty, you’d probably spend $35 on an entrée alone during regular times at Commander’s
Aside from Commander’s Palace
, you’ll also find Court of Two Sisters
, Crepes a la Cart
, Mulate’s Cajun Restaurant
, Pascal’s Manale Restaurant
, and Zea Rotisserie and Grill
, among MANY others offering similar menus throughout August.
