Chef Serigne Mbaye Makes Triumphant Return to New Orleans With Senegalese Pop-Up - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Serigne Mbaye, now back in New Orleans, cooks in Barcelona last year | Sam Zucker

The Eater Young Gun (‘18) says he’s returned to New Orleans “to stay”

Serigne Mbaye, an acclaimed young chef who once cooked at Commander’s Palace before moving on to two Michelin-starred restaurants, has returned to New Orleans with a contemporary Senegalese pop-up called Dakar. Jyl Benson at myneworleans.com reports the pop-up in Bywater takes over the former space of Polly’s Bywater Cafe (3325 St. Claude Avenue).

The New York-born, Senegalese-American chef (and Eater Young Gun (‘18) got his start in New Orleans as a line cook at Commander’s, quickly being promoted to sous chef. From there, he landed in the kitchen at Cafe Adelaide (also formerly part of the Commander’s Family of Restaurants) after which he left New Orleans for a stint at three-Michelin-starred Atelier Crenn in San Francisco. After that was New York, at two-Michelin-starred restaurant L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon. Throughout it all, he spent time visiting New Orleans, Paris, and Dakar.

Benson reports he’s back to stay in New Orleans, “a city he vows he loves above all others.”

The menu at Dakar currently includes fried plantains; Senegalese egg rolls with braised chicken and pickled vegetables; fonio salad with West African millet, Creole tomato, avocado, and pineapple; and Thieboudienne, the national dish of Senegal. Mbaye is also making two non-alcoholic drinks, Bissap (cold hibiscus tea) and ginger beer.

Dakar is currently open for pickup Thursday and Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.; pre-orders required by phone or online. Mbaye told Benson he plans to add table service when it makes sense.

For a full profile on Mbaye, check out Eater’s Young Gun (‘18) report here.

Hot Weather [ Local Stories]

Rain Chances go down this weekend. You know what that means. Hotter weather. Highs will be around 90. A weak cold front will send in some drier air, so that should make it feel more comfortable Sunday.

The 2nd tropical storm of the Season did not last long. Bertha formed at 8:30 this morning EDT. Made landfall by 9:30 AM near Mount Pleasant. Was a depression by 2PM and last advisory was written by 5PM. Max winds reached 50 mph. Bertha will likely dissipate by Thursday night, but it is going to cause heavy rain into Virginia and West Virginia before it dissipates.

This is six years in a row with an early start to the Hurricane Season. An early start does not mean an active season, but out of the past five years, only one was below average.

Watching the tropics [ Local Stories]

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring an elongated area of low pressure along the NE Coast of Florida. The system does not look like much right now. It really only has through Wednesday morning to develop if it moves over the warm water. The system is forecast to move onshore by Wednesday night.

Hurricane Season begins June first and lasts through November 30th. Tropical weather can happen anytime of the year, it is just more likely during that time period. The most active part of Hurricane Season is August, September and October. We have already had a tropical storm this Season. Arthur formed in May. This is the 6th year we have had early development. Early development is not an indicator of an active season, but out of the past five years only one was below average.

Coastal Flood Advisory posted through 5pm Tuesday. Water will run 1 1/2 feet above normal on East facing coastlines. Winds are persistent out of the ESE 15-25 mph. The wind is pushing water onshore.

20% chance tropical development for an area of rain over Florida into the Atlantic. It's possible a weak low may form off the East Coast of Florida and move North toward Georgia or South Carolina. Wind Shear is high, so tropical development is unlikely.
