Coolinary 2020: Dining deals return with new pandemic-conscious changes

NEW ORLEANS (NOLA WEEKEND) - With inflation and increased cost of living, Coolinary New Orleans returns to offer diners deals and to help restaurants during the slower summer months.

Now in its 19th year, the New Orleans culinary tradition features some of the city’s popular restaurants offering specially curated prix-fixe menus from Aug. 1 to Aug. 31.

This year, more than 100 restaurants join in the annual summer dining promotion, rolled out by New Orleans & Company, to help drive business to restaurants. Diners can enjoy special two- and three-course lunch menus for $25 or less and three-course dinner and brunch menus for $50 or less.

Participants include some of the city’s longstanding and iconic Creole and Cajun restaurants as well as new places featuring New Orleans cuisine incorporating international inspirations.

Some new Coolinary participants for 2023 include Chapter IV Restaurant, Osteria Lupo, King Brasserie & Bar and Ginger Roux.
