French Quarter Icon Muriel's Jackson Square Reopens

By: Kim Ranjbar

If you've been craving shrimp and goat cheese crepes, dining on a balcony overlooking Jackson Square, or visiting with the spirit of Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan (among their other resident ghosts), you'll be pleased to know that Muriel's has once again thrown open their doors. After almost three months "in limbo" due to the pandemic, the historic French Quarter restaurant is back in business for indoor and outdoor dining, as well as to-go orders.

"We are thrilled to finally begin serving our guests again," said co-proprietor Rick Gratia. "It's been a long journey to get to the point of safely reopening our doors, but we are excited to welcome back the New Orleans community for the traditional Muriel's experience they know and love."

As of today, Wednesday, June 4th, Muriel's Jackson Square begins offering dinner service at limited capacity seven days a week from 4pm to 9pm. Executive Chef Erik Veney is offering an updated menu with old favorite and new such as turtle soup with sherry, boudin egg rolls served with mirliton and jicama slaw, Louisiana Gulf shrimp and stone ground grits, wood-grilled pork chop with andouille potato hash and vanilla bean créme brûlée.

The safety of both staff and guests is of the utmost priority at Muriel's. The Jackson Square restaurant has implemented safety protocols which include adapting their dining rooms to observe social distancing rules, touchless temperature screening for team members and diners, mask requirements, hourly sanitization of all common surfaces, and hand sanitizer stations throughout the restaurant. They even installed foot and arm door openers in the restrooms and the front door.
