This summer, French Quarter Brasserie and Oyster Bar will bring New Orleans cuisine to Boulder, in its new location at 1207 Pearl Street, a place that Paradise Bakery once called home. The coming attraction, set to open in July, has two well-established locations in Washington, D.C. and Fairfax, Virginia.
Much like those restaurants, this Colorado outpost will bring a Cajun-influenced menu that will include dishes like crawfish étouffée, jambalaya, charbroiled oysters, a variety of po’ boys, and dirty rice. There will be baskets of fried chicken or fried pickles or fried okra and also classic sides like corn bread, collard greens, garlic mash, and red beans and sausage. New Orleans-style cocktails, wine, and beer will complement the food.
At its other locations, the group serves dinner nightly and brunch on the weekends. If that’s the case, that will give Boulderites an alternative to Lucile’s beignets and its perpetual brunch wait times.
