Upcoming Eat Club Dinners
Eat Club @Vyoone’s
CBD: 412 Conti. Click here for reservations.
The most active part of the New Orleans restaurant world these days has brought quite a few new restaurants to the corder between the CBD and the Warehouse District. This one is at the intersection of Girod and Tchoupitoulas Streets, next door to Emeril’s Meril. It’s a partnership between Dr. Segue Lewis and ZohReh Khaleghi. Zohreh had been operating the Flaming Torch Uptown until it came to a halt in, ironically, a fire. She came to the restaurant business in 2004, when her husband Hassan passed away prematurely after operating a good French bistro here. After some time, ZohReh heard enough encouragement to get back into the business, and here she is. The restaurant is a well-renovated structure that goes back to the 1840s. In the main dining room is a long dining room. A courtyard is adjacent to the main menu and has become popular, especially at lunchtime.

The Eat Club visit to Vyoon’sd is scheduled for May 16 2018 at 6:30 p.m. Cocktails are available from a cash bar starting at around 6 p.m. We sit in tables of six to eight people. I move around from table to table to visit and discuss the dinner so far. The price per person is $80, inclusive of tax, tip, and wines with each of the courses. Payment is made at the restaurant at the beginning of dinner, by cash or credit card.
