The CA’s food critic reviewed Orleans on Front today. You can read the review here. Good review, but she got the date of their Mardi Gras party wrong – it’s Saturday night, February 21, not Tuesday night.
Also, her article says that the bar is open from 10 PM to 3 AM. That’s wrong too. The upstairs bar is open the same hours the restaurant is open for lunch and dinner (11 AM to 2:30 PM and 4 PM to 10 PM). The downstairs bar aka the Voodoo Room aka Hoop’s new place is open from 8 PM to 3 AM, and after they stop serving dinner at 10, there’s a late night bar food menu from 10 PM to 3 AM.
Their website has a 10% off coupon, so you may want to stop by there and print one out before you head to Orleans. One of these days I need to get there while dinner is still being served and try those fried boudin bites.
