  • Chef Nathanial Zimet, who has been cooking up food in the Riverbend at two different outposts of his restaurant Boucherie, will open his daiquiris-and-wings joint Bourree May 8.


Bourree
(8115 Jeannette St.), the anticipated wing-and-daiquiri joint from team Nathanial Zimet and James Denio, will finally be open for business May 8 at noon.

The restaurant, which is temporarily taking over the Jeannette Street space formally occupied by Boucherie, will serve three different types of boozy, frozen libations as well as buffalo-style and smoked-jerk chicken wings.

The opening weekend daiquiri flavors include fresh strawberry, hurricane and a gin and tonic version.

“We’re pretty much no frills right now,” said Denio, adding that additional daiquiri and wing variations can be expected within the next couple of weeks.  “It’s a great little training ground for us. We’ll keep it simple to begin with and see what works,” Denio said. 

Diners can expect a full-fledged small plates menu with Polynesian-style appetizers in the months to come, when the restaurant moves to its permanent location in the old Café Nino space around the corner. Customers at Bourre will also be able to buy to-go items from a Cajun-style meat market inside the restaurant where the likes of brisket, boudin links and sausages will be sold .

Denio and Zimet relocated their acclaimed restaurant Boucherie to a larger space on S. Carrollton Avenue earlier this year. When Bourre moves into the Café Nino building, the Jeannette Street spot will continue to be used for private events. 

Bourre will be open Tuesday through Sunday from noon to midnight.  For more information visit Boucherie's website here.
