It is not really blue, just the 2nd full moon in the Month. Should be a spooky Halloween!

New Orleans Restaurants Can Resume Selling Takeout Alcohol - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Louisiana Pulls Back On Reopening Economy As Coronavirus Hospitalizations Rise Restaurants can sell to-go drinks in New Orleans again, but bars remain closed | Photo by Sean Gardner/Getty Images

Restaurants are once again permitted to offer to-go drinks, but bars remain closed entirely

The office of New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell announced today that effective tonight, September 25, restaurants in New Orleans can resume selling alcoholic beverages through drive-thru, takeout, and curbside pickup. Bars in the city will remain closed entirely for the time being.

The ban on to-go drinks has been in place since July, when the Mayor prohibited the sale of takeout alcohol from restaurants and closed bars for even curbside service, which was permitted under the Louisiana governor’s statewide guidelines. The move was part of an effort to curb crowds gathering in the French Quarter and elsewhere around the city, but was criticized for taking away a crucial source of income for restaurants. Known for its unique laws permitting the purchase of “go cups,” New Orleans became one of the only places in the US where you couldn’t purchase alcohol to-go from restaurants, as cities adopted temporary or permanent new rules in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

For now, only restaurants are allowed to resume to-go alcohol sales — bars remain closed. Restaurants can sell to-go drinks between 8 a.m. and 11 p.m., which is the last call for alcohol sales at restaurants statewide. New Orleans remains in phase 2 while the rest of the state is in phase 3, allowing restaurants to open at 75 percent capacity and parishes that meet positivity rate benchmarks to open bars at 25 percent capacity. A city spokesperson said this week that further restrictions could be eased as early as late next week.

Emeril’s New Orleans, Pat O’Brien’s Give Notice of Mass Employee Layoffs - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Pat O’Brien’s will lay off 80 employees by September 30 | Pat O’Briens/Facebook

Plus, a barbecue drive-thru offers a mini Hogs for the Cause before Sunday’s Saints game, and more news to know today

Welcome to p.m. Intel, your afternoon roundup of New Orleans food and restaurant news. Tips are always welcome, drop them here.

  • Emeril Lagasse’s flagship restaurant Emeril’s New Orleans and French Quarter tourist destination Pat O’Briens are among the New Orleans businesses that reported employee layoffs to the Louisiana Workforce Commission in September. Businesses with 100 employees or more are required to report layoffs through the state’s Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notifications (WARN) act when they don’t plan to rehire employees within six months. Emeril’s filed a notice on September 15 regarding 97 employees laid off on March 17; however Pat O’Brien’s filed a notice regarding the layoffs of 80 employees to take place by September 30. Dave & Buster’s reported it would lay off 97 employees by November 8.
  • Ten teams that normally compete in New Orleans’s beloved annual barbecue festival Hogs for the Cause will be cooking up their specialties this Sunday, September 27, at Lakeview restaurant Junior’s on Harrison. Called the Hogstar BBQ Drive-Thru, the teams (including restaurants Blue Oak BBQ and Frey Smoked Meat Co.) will each prepare one item to be boxed together in packs for a couple ($49.99) or a family ($99.99). Sales are by pre-order only, with pickup at the drive-thru on Sunday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. — perfect timing for Sunday night’s Saints game.
  • After the city ordered Irish Channel bar Tracey’s closed immediately, owner Jeff Carreras told WWL that there were no violations of city guidelines during Monday night’s Saints game. A video he tweeted during the game kicked off a social media firestorm and led city officials to shut down the bar until it “provides an operational management plan” to address overcrowding. Carreras told WWL, “We strictly enforced physical distancing, operated at less than 50% of our capacity, ensured customer’s temperatures were taken, and mandated the wearing of masks when our guests were going to and leaving from their tables.”
  • New Orleans’s ban on to-go drinks continues to frustrate local proprietors, with the owner of bars Twelve Mile Limit and the Domino T. Cole Newton starting an online petition this week asking Mayor LaToya Cantrell to lift the ban. A city spokesperson has said some restrictions would be eased late next week, and that to-go alcohol rules were among those being looked at for consideration.
  • A fundraiser from the organizers of the annual Crescent City Classic road race will raise money for the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation, a nonprofit that gives grants to hospitality workers in need. Through October 15, the Bourbon Street Barathon sends participants (solo or in small groups) on a route through the French Quarter and CBD that passes 17 bars, awarding a “virtual drink” to participants when they pass each bar. Donations raised by participants for their challenge and a portion of their registration fees go to the Foundation.

Coastal flood advisory posted through Friday at Noon. High tides are in the morning, so there is still the potential for a one to two foot water rise. Winds are shifted to the WNW, so water will begin to drain out of the Lakes. Winds are no longer high across the lakes.

Two cold fronts are in sight. One will move through late Monday into Tuesday with a cool down and drier air moving into the area.

19 Essential Spots for Affordable Dining in and Around New Orleans - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Banh Mi Boys’ chargrilled lemongrass pork banh mi | Banh Mi Boys/Facebook

Where to find the best budget-friendly meals in town

Thankfully, in these tough economic times, affordable dining isn’t hard to come by in New Orleans. Make that, affordable good dining, because lord knows life’s too short to eat bad food (or drink bad wine, but that’s another story). Sidle up to any of the spots on this list and you’re guaranteed a rib-sticking homestyle meal at prices that won’t break the bank. A 10-spot will usually take care of business, but each eatery has cheaper chow if you peruse the menu. Best of all, the food is made to order fresh, which feels like a great deal.

NOTE: A number of these restaurants have resumed dine-in service. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns. For updated information on coronavirus cases in the area, please visit the Louisiana coronavirus website.

As always, send a note if we left out one of your favorites.

Hepatitis A Cases From August Linked to Galatoire’s, Restaurant Confirms - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Outside Galatoire’s Galatoire’s | Brasted/Eater NOLA

The famous fine dining restaurant has been contacted by health officials about an incident dating back to last month

Louisiana health officials have notified Galatoire’s, one of New Orleans’s most famous fine dining destinations, of at least one case of hepatitis A linked to the French Quarter restaurant, reports NOLA.com. Galatoire’s has released a statement confirming it was “recently” contacted about a “potential incident dating from early to mid-August.”

Hepatitis A is a contagious viral infection that can cause liver damage and other health issues. It’s transmitted through contaminated food and water and person-to-person contact.

The restaurant’s statement says that following the notification, “we embraced the assistance of the Department of Health and together outlined steps Galatoire’s could take to be as responsive as possible for our team and our guests. We acted on the Office’s recommendations immediately.” The restaurant has since undergone a standard inspection by the Department of Health, on September 17, and passed. The restaurant also said it asked about “any additional activities we could take in situations like these” and has since had all employees vaccinated based on the state’s recommendation.

Galatoire’s has not said if a staff member or customer was infected, how many cases were identified by the Department of Health, or identified the source of the infection. According to NOLA.com, the cases are among 1,244 that the state of Louisiana has recorded since January 2018. It’s relatively rare for workers in the food service industry to transmit hepatitis A, however, outbreaks have been tied to restaurants in the past.

After shutting down in March amid the coronavirus pandemic, Galatoire’s first reopened with to-go food and later resumed dine-in service in mid-May with 35 of its normal 170 seats. It has since increased capacity in accordance with New Orleans’s phase 2 restaurant guidelines.

Eater has reached out to city and state health department officials regarding any guidance for customers who may have dined at the restaurant from early to mid-August and will update this post if we hear back. For more information on Hepatitis A cases in Louisiana, see the Department of Health’s page here.

New Orleans Mayor Orders Tracey’s Bar Closed for Violating COVID Guidelines - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Plus, Jefferson parish is reopening bars, and more news to know today

Welcome to p.m. Intel, your afternoon roundup of New Orleans food and restaurant news. Tips are always welcome, drop them here.

  • After a video of the scene at Tracey’s Original Irish Bar during Monday night’s Saints game circulated around New Orleans social media this week, New Orleans officials ordered the Irish Channel bar and restaurant closed on Wednesday, “until such time as the owner provides an operational management plan to the City which must include a viable solution to properly handle overcrowding.” The order follows the bar being issued a citation in May for crowds gathering on the first day bars were allowed to reopen in New Orleans. Before that, police were called to Tracey’s to break up crowds on St. Patrick’s Day, historically a gathering point for the holiday.
  • After an unsuccessful attempt to open bars without meeting the governor’s criteria last week, Jefferson parish can reopen them Wednesday night, reports WWL. The release of data Wednesday by the Louisiana Department of Health data showed the parish now has two consecutive weeks of test positivity below five percent, allowing the parish to “opt in” to the move. JP council members prepared for the possibility earlier this week, calling a special meeting to draft a resolution that would allow it to opt in upon release of the data. Bars can open at 25 percent capacity for up to 50 customers for table service only.
  • Next door in New Orleans, a city spokesperson said yesterday that some restrictions could be eased late next week. While it’s unclear what that might entail, New Orleans has remained in phase 2 while the rest of the state proceeded to phase 3, allowing restaurants to open at 75 percent capacity and parishes that meet positivity rate benchmarks to open bars at 25 percent capacity. Additionally, New Orleans currently has a ban on the sale of to-go alcohol from bars or restaurants, a restriction not implemented elsewhere in the state.
  • Parking and sidewalk use rules loosened by the city in order to expand outdoor dining options in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic will continue through the end of the year. New Orleans allowed restaurants to use private parking areas for additional outdoor tables and obtain sidewalk-use permits free of charge for the same in May, saying the temporary rules would continue through September 30. Last month, the city launched a phased program to expand outdoor dining further, starting with mini-grants to restaurants to build or improve outside dining areas followed by a plan to turn parking lanes into designated dining areas.
  • Cochon Butcher’s beloved sandwiches and charcuterie are now available for nationwide shipping on Goldbelly, so fans can skip the line that sometimes wraps around onto N. Peters. A “Pic Mac” dinner kit, the muffaletta, a charcuterie box, a “Petite Cajun” grilling dinner, and a grand boucherie meat package are available for home delivery.

Flash flood watch [ Local Stories]

Beta, Paulette and Teddy are all now post-tropical. There are no active tropical systems in the Atlantic Basin right now! Nice for a change!

There will still be impacts from Beta. it is causing heavy rain now over SE Texas, and there are concerns for flooding should a rainband set up over the same area. Beta is forecast to move ENE across Louisiana and will increase rain chances as it moves across the Central portion of the state.

Tuesday was the first day of Fall. The average high for this day is 86, but the high was 79. Cloudy skies and showers helped keep the temperatures down. Rain chances will go down Friday into the weekend. More sunshine is forecast. That also means it will be warmer with highs climbing into the mid to maybe even upper 80s! A cold front moves through with slightly cooler morning lows Monday.

Flash flood watch [ Local Stories]

Flash flood watch is in effect for west portions of the viewing area through Wednesday at 7 PM. Forecast models show some heavy rain potential over the South Central portion of Louisiana.

Coastal Flood Warning is in effect through Noon Wednesday, then it becomes a Coastal Flood Advisory. Onshore winds are diminishing, but are persistent. That wind is pushing water onshore, and preventing water from exiting the lakes. The wind becomes more of a Southeast flow Wednesday, and will push water more to the Northshore. Stay weather aware.

The French Quarter Guide to Takeout and Delivery - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Central Grocery’s famous muffaletta | Central Grocery/Official

From po’ boys and muffulettas perfect for a picnic to lobster and steak feasts fit for date night

The French Quarter is the oldest square mile in New Orleans and home to more restaurants and bars per square block than any other neighborhood. And while visitors to the Quarter typically seek to experience those establishments in person, there’s a whole slew of takeout and delivery options available for residents of the neighborhood and beyond — now more than ever.

This guide is a cross section of food available for takeout or delivery in the Vieux Carre, from historic places that sell iconic dishes (Central Grocery and Galatoire’s) to newer, hipper spots (Killer PoBoys) to over-the-top special occasion restaurants (GW Fins, Doris Metropolitan) for a splurge meal at home. As always, check restaurant websites and social media to confirm current hours.

Have a French Quarter takeout option to suggest? Leave a comment or send an email.

Coastal flood warning [ Local Stories]

Flash flood watch is posted for most of Southeast Louisiana through Wednesday at 7pm. An additional 2-4 inches of rain is possible. A coastal flood warning is posted through Noon Tuesday for a 2-4 foot rise along the coast because of persistent onshore flow. Winds gusted Monday to 51 mph at Port Fourchon. The wind is pushing water onshore. A coastal flood advisory will continue in effect after the warning expires. Just be aware that there will be a slow fall in the water.

Fall arrives at 8:30 Tuesday morning. The average low is 71 and the average high is 86. We have been running much lower than that recently because of persistent rain and cloud cover. Rain chances go down Friday into the weekend, and that means it will be warmer with highs in the mid 80s. A cold front moves through late Sunday and early Monday with some cooler weather on the way.

Dixie Beer Asks Fans to Help Rename the Century-Old Brewery - [Eater New Orleans - All]


The public can submit new names for the beer through Friday | Shutterstock

Plus, this year’s free, all-digital Tales of the Cocktail kicks off and more news to know today

Welcome to p.m. Intel, your afternoon roundup of New Orleans food and restaurant news. Tips are always welcome, drop them here.

  • After announcing plans for a name change in June, century-old Dixie Beer is asking the public for help help in choosing its new brand identity. The New Orleans-born brewery is accepting suggestions through a form on its website through Friday, September 25, with the goal of announcing a new name next month. Owner Gale Benson (who also owns New Orleans’s Saints and Pelicans franchises) announced the renaming in the wake of Black Lives Matter protests, following similar moves by brands like Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben’s Cream of Wheat. The company says its goal is to have the new brand hit markets by Mardi Gras 2021.
  • Tales of the Cocktail, the multi-day spirits industry conference held annually in New Orleans, has kicked off this year’s digital version, September 21 — 24. Normally held in July, it canceled the in-person event for 2020 in April following similar announcements from Jazz Fest and Essence Festival. This year’s conference is free to participants who register at talesofthecocktail.org, allowing access to a mix of live and pre-recorded sessions on topics like bar choreography, equity in the industry, work-life balance, e-commerce, bar recovery, and of course, on spirits themselves.
  • Chef Tory McPhail of Commander’s Palace fame just put his Uptown home on the market for $1.5 million, a year after an inside look at the newly-renovated house sparked a flurry of online admiration for its eight-burner stove, two-sink kitchen, and 400-bottle wine storage unit. The 2,400 square foot, 3-bedroom home also features 14-foot kitchen islands, a sauna, and a pool with infinity edges.
  • Jefferson Parish council members are holding a special meeting today to draft a resolution to reopen bars, reports FOX8. Last week, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards denied the council’s request to do so, saying the parish did not meet the criteria (a positivity rate of 5 percent or lower for two straight weeks). Apparently, the council expects the parish to meet the criteria “any day now,” “so the moment that we have a second consecutive week where we have 5 percent or below positivity rate, Jefferson parish wants to opt-in,” said Jennifer Van Vrancken, who asked bar owners in Jefferson to be ready to open. The council also plans to ask Edwards to allow individual government leaders to decide the hours bars can stay open, reports WDSU.
  • New Orleans’s new culinary school (and nonprofit) NOCHI is hosting a virtual fundraising auction to support its hospitality programs, and the prizes include private cooking classes with chefs like Emeril Lagasse, Donald Link, and Nina Compton. Cooking for a Cause bidding will be held September 30 — October 14, with prizes announced during a livestreamed “grand finale” on October 14 in conjunction with Commander’s Palace’s popular wine and cheese Zoom class.
