Increasing clouds Saturday night [ Local Stories]

Friday night weather was chilly but nice. Saturday will be sunny in the morning then partly cloudy in the afternoon with highs in the mid 60s. Clouds increase Saturday night, and then rain for Sunday. The good news about the rain Sunday is that it looks like it will mainly be early morning into the early afternoon hours. We will great breaks in the afternoon. While it is not going to be a great day, it will improve by one or two in the afternoon.

It looks warmer for Monday and Tuesday with highs in the upper 70s. There is a rain chance developing later in the day Monday and then also Tuesday as a cold front moves our way. It turns cooler Wednesday.

Heads up: The Pearl River at Bogalusa and Pearl River are at minor flood, but both locations are forecast to go to moderate flood. The River is rising due to heavy rain to the North. Stay weather aware.

New Brewpub Will Bring Acclaimed Chef’s Viet-Cajun Creations to Bywater - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Chef Anh Luu with a famous phoritto at her Portland restaurant, Tapalaya | Tapalaya/Facebook

Bywater Brewpub’s kitchen will be led by Anh Luu, a New Orleans native who owned a Viet-Cajun restaurant in Portland

The Bywater neighborhood is getting a new 75-seat brew pub, and the kitchen will be led by talented New Orleans native Anh Luu, who most recently owned a successful Viet-Cajun restaurant in Portland before returning to the city last year.

Creatively called Bywater Brewpub, Gambit reports that the restaurant and microbrewery will serve five to eight beers and the Vietnamese-Cajun mashup items Luu cooks, like crawfish etouffee nachos and double-fried chicken wings with brown butter fish sauce.

Luu was born in New Orleans to Vietnam War refugees, ending up in Portland after Hurricane Katrina derailed her college plans. In 2013, Luu became head chef at Portland restaurant Tapalaya, where she became known for viral phorrito pop-ups and earned rave reviews. After five years and a semifinalist nod for Eater Young Guns 2016, she bought Tapalaya from owners in 2017. Last year she sold the restaurant and returned to New Orleans following the death of her mother.

Bywater Brewpub is located in the former Copperworks warehouse building at 3000 Royal Street, a former glassblowing studio (Mitchell Gaudet’s Studio Inferno, now in Arabi). Owner Nahum Laventhal tells Gambit that Sonny Day, previously at Urban South Brewery and Abita Brewing Co., will oversee the beer.

Laventhal expects to open Bywater Brewpub in April.

Big drop in temperatures overnight [ Local Stories]

There is a marginal risk severe storms overnight. There is the potential for a squall line to develop along a cold front moving through in the early morning hours. The risk is for a few storms that could have damaging winds or even an isolated tornado. The greater risk for severe storms is really to our North. It's going to be cooler Thursday with temperatures in the afternoon in the upper 50s to low 60s. We will have some breaks in the clouds during the day, but it's going to be a mostly cloudy day. Colder weather forecast for Valentine's Day. Morning lows drop into the upper 30s on the Northshore to mid 40s South. Highs will be in the upper 50s with sunny skies. Chilly Friday night for the parades. Temperatures will drop into the mid 40s to upper 40s by 9pm. Cold Saturday morning. Lows on the Northshore will be in the mid 30s with light wind. There is the potential for some frost. Lows on the South Shore will be in the mid 40s. Partly cloudy skies are forecast with highs in the mid 60s. Lows Sunday will be in the 50s. Mostly cloudy skies forecast with a rain chance developing. Looks like the rain will be later in the day. Hopefully the weather will cooperate with all the parades.

New Orleans’s ‘First’ Omakase Destination Makes Much-Anticipated Debut - [Eater New Orleans - All]


The sign-less Nagomi at 3214 Burgundy St. | Clair Lorell/Eater NOLA

Nagomi opens in the Bywater tonight, February 12, but good luck getting a table

After a few weeks of invite-only dinner service and a heavily-trafficked social media contest for followers to score a sneak preview, New Orleans’s much-awaited “first” omakase restaurant, Nagomi, debuts in the Bywater today, February 12.

Nagomi announced the Wednesday opening on Facebook yesterday (February 11), going live on Resy at the same time. Shortly after, all seats in the tiny space were booked through early March, as far as was made available on the platform. The post notes that reservations can only be made through Resy, so Eater’s recommended move of calling and connecting with a human for a hard-to-get table is sadly not applicable here.

Resy is live! (There MAY be a delay) We are open Wednesday - Saturday. Only February is available. Max 4 seats. Very...

Posted by Nagomi NOLA on Tuesday, February 11, 2020

The 12-seat Nagomi, located at 3214 Burgundy Street, is the result of a partnership between sushi chef Kazuyuki “Kaz” Ishikawa, his longtime partner-in-sushi Eli Ramos, and local restaurateur Billy Blatty. Blatty owns downtown bro-cade Barcadia, newish Italian restaurant Sofia, and has his eye on the lot around the corner from Nagomi for a new bar and restaurant, plans that some neighbors on the residential block oppose.

Chef Kaz, a Tokyo native, gained a loyal fan base with unexpected, elevated creations while manning the sushi bar at longtime Metairie sushi spot Shogun, and later through his wildly popular omakase pop-ups around town. Plans to open “New Orleans’s first omakase sushi bar” began taking shape last spring.

While omakase, the pair want dinner here to be approachable in both price and style, with meals starting at $45 and going up from there. Nagomi will have two seatings per night, and chef Kaz says he hopes to get direction from diners on what they’re seeking that night, whether it be straight sushi or fusion.

Nagomi has held invite-only friends and family nights in recent weeks, and had seatings two weekends ago (January 30 to February 2) for a small number of Facebook followers. Spaces were awarded to a select few who tagged their friends on the post first, with owners saying they wanted to “test our social media reach.” The post racked up 667 comments.

Nagomi will be open for dinner Wednesday through Saturday for two seatings a night, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m.
