Gris-Gris Re-Opening In August With Exclusive Private Dining Experiences

One of our favorite uptown spots, Gris-Gris, was forced to close suddenly this month due to the ongoing battle with Coronavirus. Gris-Gris owner and head chef Eric Cook posted an emotional response to the on-going battle restaurants are facing in the city of New Orleans due to restrictions and the virus. 

Since his post, Gris-Gris has been working behind the scenes to figure out a solution to their COVID-19 issues. Today we are happy to announce they are back in service, with a unique twist, starting August 7.

Gris-Gris’ new business model will feature a variety of exclusive in-restaurant dining experiences tailored to small groups.

โ€œWeโ€™ve really missed sharing our passion for true New Orleans hospitality and food,โ€ said Cook. โ€œWe are continuing the fight to keep our culture alive and show the world our resilience as a united community โ€“ and friends and family around the table is a good place to start.โ€ 

Cook will give small groups the opportunity to book the entire restaurant for a one-of-a-kind private culinary experience for a safer, more intimate dining experience. Chef Cook and his team will work directly with guests to plan a unique menu specific to each party using the freshest Gulf Seafood and local ingredients โ€“ whether a multi-course dinner with wine pairings, weekend brunch, or intimate cocktail party.

The Exclusive dining experiences can include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Seated dinners for up to 12 in Gris-Grisโ€™ Samedi Room.
    • 3-course menus (with wine pairings) available for $100/per person.
    • 4-course menus (with wine pairings) available for $120/per person.
  • Cocktail party or reception for up to 25 people in Gris-Grisโ€™ upstairs dining room and balcony (must adhere to all social distancing and mandated precautions).
  • Food and beverage minimum: $1,200.

Those that are interested in Gris-Gris new service can make reservations by emailing or calling/texting (504) 435-5151. Gris-Gris plans to keep their restaurant closed in August and September for additional in-restaurant dining and focus solely on intimate private dinners.
