Not too long ago I did a big blog post about a dinner I had at Galatoire's Bistro. My good friend Brian Thom is the head bartender, and he was excited to host Eusebio Gongora, Chef Partner at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar, and I for an evening of cocktails, wine, and delicious food. You can check out that blog post here.
Last month we filmed the bar scenes of the Ninja Snowballs FINALS video inside Galatoire's Bistro. The dim lighting, high archways, and beautiful bar created a perfect setting for the dream sequence shoot as we made a play on the Mint Julep and Lemon Fluff snowball flavors by turning them into their appropriate cocktails, created by none other than Brian Thom. You can catch that video below if you haven't seen it yet, and see all the other Ninja Snowballs videos here.
Now you have an AWESOME opportunity to enjoy Galatoire's Bistro for yourself. Join me on Thursday, November 18th at 7:00 pm to kick-off the LSU-Ole Miss football weekend at the 4th Annual Purple and Gold Wine Dinner at Galatoire's Bistro, featuring the wines of Penfolds. Chef Roberto Bustillo will cook up items such as the Les is More braised lamb shank and Death Valley broiled scallops, just to name a few (Get it? All the dishes have LSU vs Ole Miss themes, hence the Purple and Gold!). For more information and reservations, call Dana Abay at (225) 753-4864. You can see the full menu below. I assure you, it will be fantastic and worth every penny!! Feel free to show that you are coming and invite friends on their Facebook event page too. Hope to see you there!
