Meauxbar Showcases the Versatility of Louisiana's Seasonal Ingredients with Summer Dinner Series 
Executive chef John Bel and the Meauxbar team introduce six themed dinners that span the summer season

NEW ORLEANS (June 23, 2017) - Starting on Wednesday, June 28, Meauxbar launch a playful summer dinner series that will highlight the bounty of local ingredients and local purveyors - an approach to sourcing at the foundation of the restaurant's culinary and beverage programs. In total, the series will feature approximately 75 locally-sourced ingredients that demonstrate the range and versatility of Louisiana's produce and products.

Each dinner will feature carefully-crafted four- or five- course themed menus by executive chef John Bel, playful desserts by pastry chef Ruby Bloch, and pairings by bar director Gillian White - throughout the summer.

Meauxbar's summer dinner series will kick off on June 28 with a summer harvest dinner. In conjunction with The Eat Local Challenge, all ingredients will be sourced within 200 miles of Meauxbar's front door, a philosophy that is integral to the goals and ideals of all of the LeBlanc+Smith restaurants. Among the featured purveyors are Covey Rise Farms, Higgins Seafood and Chappapeela Farms. The evening's pairings will feature beers and spirits made in South Louisiana and Mississippi.

Details regarding Meauxbar's inaugural summer dinner series are as follows:

• Summer Harvest Dinner
Wednesday, June 28; opens at 5:00 and served throughout the evening
A 4-course, locally-inspired and sourced dinner featuring ingredients sourced within 200 miles of the restaurant. Co-hosted by The Eat Local Challenge.

• Spirits of the Americas Dinner
Monday, July 17, 2017; opens at 5:00 and served throughout the evening
A 4-course cocktail pairing dinner using various spirits indigenous to North and South America. Mezcal, bourbon, pisco, tequila and cachaca will inspire the menu and cocktails on this trip across the border.

• War of the Rosés
Monday, July 31, 2017; opens at 5:00 and served throughout the evening
A 4-course dinner menu with dynamic rosé parings from around the world. The "fan favorite" rosé from the evening will be added to the wine list as long as it is available.

• Forgotten NOLA Dinner
Wednesday, September 13, 2017; opens at 5:00 and served throughout the evening
A 5-course menu inspired by restaurants and dishes that no longer are in the regular repertoire of the city. Guests may find dishes like hot tamales, street food, and recipes from long lost NOLA restaurants, celebrating New Orleans that was and the New Orleans yet to come.
Cost: $60 with a "Forgotten NOLA" cocktail list available a la cart

Menus with pairings will be served throughout the night, allowing guests to make a convenient reservation. Full menus outlining Meauxbar's summer dinner series are forthcoming.
