From the days when the Marigny and the Bywater sections began to flower with restaurants, the Country Club has been part of it. It has passed through a number of menus and service styles, none as good as the current regime. The current flavors are mostly imbued with contemporary Creole, bringing to the table that mix of familiar Louisiana ingredients as well as enough modern eating that the food feels original. Historically,that’s the kind of menu that the Eat Club has most enjoyed.

So here we are. The date is Thursday, January 25. Service begins at about 6:30 p.m.. Come early if you like for for cocktails (on you). We’ll have four courses with paired wines for $75 inclusive of tax, tip, and wines. We sit in tables of six to eight. I move around from table to table to shoot the breeze and discuss the eats and drinks. Payment is made at the restaurant at the beginning of dinner, by cash or credit cards. If you have any questions, write to me at tom@nomenu.com.
