At long last, the kitchen at Treo is open and ready for business, turning out affordable Spanish-inspired small plates with a Louisiana influence and craft cocktails for folks looking to explore the currently uncharted waters of Tulane Avenue.

"We're trying to be a focal point for our area, and kickstart something here," said chef James Cullen. "There's a lot of great food in Mid-City, and we're trying to be a solid addition to that scene while raising the profile of Tulane Avenue."

Highlights from the menu (nothing more than $12) range from an elegant coriander-crusted lamb chop with a mint chimichurri and Belgian endive, to steamed clams in a white wine butter sauce, to a homey crawfish enchilada that Cullen describes as "tightened-up crawfish etouffee."

The kitchen is open Tuesday through Saturday from 5-11 p.m., though Cullen plans on expanding kitchen hours to midnight soon to match the bar hours.
