Everything is touch-and-go these days, especially in the restaurant industry. Owners are going back and forth over the financial feasibility of staying open for curbside and delivery, possibly offering jobs for employees who desperately need it or closing their doors rather than operating on a minimum and risking the health of everyone involved.
If there's one thing that's certain, the diners of New Orleans appreciate those who can still manage to serve us our favorites, even if it comes in a box. And at the same time, we're also more than understanding concerning others remain closed to wait out the storm.
Here's an update on several French Quarter favorites offering curbside and takeout… and even a few specials for Mother's Day!
Like GWFins and other restaurants across town, The Pelican Club was closed for a spell, but has reopened once again for curbside pickup available Wednesday through Sunday. This time around, the takeout menu highlights new offerings, as well as a few favorites, all of which are available in both individual and family-sized portions.
Enjoy everything from creamy crawfish bisque and jumbo lump crab cakes with fried green tomatoes to Korean 24-hour baby back ribs and Thai Gulf fish and shrimp with citrus chili sauce and chinois slaw. Don't forget dessert like their fabulous white chocolate bread pudding or coconut cream pie. The Pelican Club's Facebook page has posted a Mother's Day menu.
The Pelican Club is also offering a large menu of discounted wines; sparkling, whites and reds. To place your order call (504) 523-1504 Wednesday through Sunday between 11:00AM and 7:00PM. Pickup is available Wednesday through Sunday between 4:30PM and 7:30PM at 615 Bienville.
