Bourrée offers good eats, great atmosphere

Located less than a mile from campus and now accepting NolaBuck$, Bourrée offers Cajun classics and unique takes on classic New Orleans cuisine.

Bourrée offers bottled drinks but is most known for its frozen daiquiris, which come in different seasonal flavors. Currently, they offer blueberry chai, gin and tonic and Mr. T — a mixture of tea, lemonade and rum. 

Bourrée’s space is perfect for parties that would have a more COVID-19 conscious approach. It exclusively features outdoor seating, which offers a delightful view of the South Carrollton streetcar. The courtyard has plenty of picnic tables and chairs, but the live music is the best part.

Bourrée features local artists that perform live on their outdoor stage Thursday through Sunday. You can enjoy local talent while sipping on delicious in-house daiquiris and eating scrumptious bites from their amazing menu.

We had the pleasure of trying some of their most popular menu items, with music courtesy of the Jenn Howard Band. As they played some original songs and classic hits, we sampled the buffalo cauliflower po’boy and the buffalo chicken po’boy. It had just the right level of spice and provided a perfect complement to our Mr. T daiquiris — a Bourrée specialty.

Their pulled pork nachos were also a great addition to our meal, a delightfully savory and sweet treat. Bourrée has a variety of chicken wings and a special selection of boudin links. For those who don’t know, Louisiana boudin is a sausage that consists of anything from dirty rice to ship or chicken, all stuffed in a sausage casing. While it sounds like a lot on one plate, it’s a traditional Cajun delicacy that Bourrée executes spectacularly.

Bourrée is three blocks from Oak Street on South Carrollton Avenue and is open Wednesday through Sunday for lunch and dinner. Check out their website to see their menu and restaurant story here.
