Vegetarian pop-up restaurant in the Marigny

Posted By on Wed, Jul 20, 2011 at 3:33 PM

A new self-described “vegetarian pop-up” restaurant that marks its grand opening this Saturday in Faubourg Marigny sounds like good news for anyone after a fresh meatless meal.

Tsai will serve dinner inside the Dragon’s Den (435 Esplanade Ave.) music club on Saturdays, starting at 6 p.m.

Here’s the concept:

We are inspired by the vibrant cuisines of New Orleans and also by the street food culture in Taiwan

And

The menu might include goat’s milk polenta and smothered kale with shitake mushrooms one week, followed by homemade noodles and fried okra with watermelon relish the next week.

Tsai did a test run last Saturday night with a menu lavishly sourced from the Crescent City Farmers Market that same morning. The bar at Dragon’s Den serves drinks and Tsai accepts cash only.

The pop-up is in the restaurant space that was long home to Siamese Thai, and later had a stint as the vegetarian restaurant Café Bamboo.
