News for Restaurants in New Orleans
The recently opened McClure's Barbecue is already in hot water with area residents who claim that the restaurant's outdoor smoker is wreaking havoc with the air quality in the neighborhood. The neighbors filed a lawsuit in New Orleans Civil District Court, seeking to compel owner Neil McClure to cease operations and face eviction. The smoker was not approved for use outdoors prior to the restaurant's opening in late July. To date, no action has been taken on the suit and McClure's future operation has not been determined. Lunch & Dinner daily. McClure's Barbecue, 4800 Magazine St., New Orleans, LA 70115, 504-301-2367.
Felipe's Taqueria, the popular French Quarter build-your-own-Mexican entrée joint, unveiled a new Wednesday, Friday and Saturday late night menu. The new menu items, available starting at 11 p.m. on weekends, include a "Sonoran Hot dog," which is a quarter-pound frank, topped with refried beans and multiple condiments, stuffed into a baguette. The bar stays open way into the wee hours at the lively corner eatery on Decatur Street. There is no official closing time. Lunch & Dinner daily. Felipe's Taqueria, 301 N. Peters St., New Orleans, LA 70130, 504-267-4406.
Two of the three owners of Three Muses, the lively, always-busy Faubourg Marigny small plates restaurant, have announced plans for a second location on bustling Freret Street. Freret, now home to at least a dozen eateries, will see Three Muses operate in the same location that was home for several decades to the venerable Dunbar's Restaurant. Dunbar's closed this location after Katrina, and it has remained vacant ever since. The new location will reportedly not be named Three Muses, and details of the menu and concept have not been revealed. The owners hope for a late 2014 opening. Three Muses, 536 Frenchmen St., New Orleans, LA 70116, 504-252-4801.
