Longway Tavern

Longway Tavern in the French Quarter is a swanky date spot with a gorgeous outdoor courtyard and intimate indoor dining seating. Their 3-course COOLinary menu is set with one selection for all three courses, unless you’re dining in. Start the meal off with a Hand Pie made with spinach and artichoke, followed by a Creole Tomato Salad and topped off with a glass of wine or dessert of the day. This is on the lighter side of selections. 

Walk ins welcome, no reservations accepted.


Monkey Board

Enjoy gorgeous views of the city on top of Monkey Board located on top of the Troubador Hotel in the CBD. Experience their new start-of-the-art retractable roof system, hand-crafted cocktails and frozen drinks, and 360 degrees views of the city. Highlights include the Shrimp Ceviche with citrus, tomato, and avocado, Wagyu Beef Sliders with smoked gouda, and Big O Craft Popsicles + Paired Cocktail to top it off. COOLinary menu not available on Saturdays and Sundays.

Bacchanal wine

COOLinary at Bacchanal is an amazing experience where food, music, and culture collide in the Ninth Ward. Start off with Panzanella – an eggplant, green beans, piquillos, caper and mint dish – followed with Meatballs or Spaghetti, and finished with Coconut Panna Cotta or Dark Chocolate Bark.
