If you've been searching for a little bit of bayou in the city, Mosquito Supper Club — the brainchild of former Cafe Hope Chef Melissa Martin — has arrived to sate your appetite.


While quirky, one-off dinners are a dime a dozen in New Orleans these days, Mosquito Supper Club looks to be a game changer by creating dining experiences that are both rustic and elegant, keeping more in line with the social-club-meets-dinner-party atmosphere of an old-fashioned supper club than a fly-by-night pop-up.


The dinners, which will be held at The Tigermen Den on Royal Street in the Bywater, have limited seating, and subscribe to a menu that showcases classic Louisiana ingredients. For the next dinner on June 29, the menu features deviled eggs with lump crabmeat and a cucumber and tomato salad with Steen's vinegar.

Martin will also be making bouillie pies — a classic Cajun sweet dough pie with a custard filling unavailable anywhere else in New Orleans — from her secret family recipe.


On June 8, Mosquito Supper Club will also host a kid-friendly "fais do do" brunch at The Tigermen Den, complete with live zydeco music, boudin, and "pop rouge" ice cream.
