The Pelican Club Extending COOLinary Menu Through September 15

Due to popular demand, The Pelican Club has announced that they will be extending their COOLinary menu through September 15. The menu includes a plethora of offerings, making it the perfect place for a large group with different tastes (limit to 12). The Pelican Club, located in the French Quarter at 312 Exchange Place, is open daily for dinner service beginning at 5:30pm. 

The restaurant originally began their COOLinary menu much earlier than other restaurants, starting on July 11th. That means they will have been running with this special menu for almost 2 months. Obviously, this offering has been quite the success for them! 

River Beats New Orleans recently dined at The Pelican Club because of their COOLinary offerings, and we were not disappointed. We began with the Pelican Club Baked Oysters and Lump Crab Cake, followed by the Lobster and Gulf Fish. The lobster is highly recommended and is MASSIVE. Come hungry, because there is a lot of delicious food to be had.
