Tableau restaurant, located at 616 St. Peter Street, reopened Friday for dining on the weekends.
The Dickie Brennan-owned restaurant announced earlier this month that outdoor dining will resume in the courtyard and its wraparound balcony from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
The restaurant’s menu includes signature dishes, such as barbecue shrimp and grits, creme brulee and $12 carafes of mimosas.
A reservation is recommended and can be made online or by calling 504-934-3463.
Tableau closed shortly after COVID-19 shutdowns in March, but continued to offer to-go service, although that was discontinued less than a week later.
In July, New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell limited restaurants with food permits to only 50% capacity as a measure to reduce spread of the coronavirus.
“Nothing quite captures the essence of New Orleans like sipping a cocktail on a balcony overlooking Jackson Square,” Brennan said. “We’re trying to restore a sense of normalcy to our community and bring back those special moments we all miss, in the safest way possible.”
