Cajun makeovers happening on St. Mary’s Strip
A pair of restaurant properties off the St. Mary’s Strip with Louisiana flair are undergoing a few makeovers that will add a little more boozy bite to brunch and bring back some lunch favorites to the menu.
NOLA Brunch and Beignets, located at 111 Kings Court, is in the process of adding beer and wine to the menu and is awaiting final approval from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission. Owner Pieter Sypesteyn also said that in the next week or so, NOLA will start offering a lineup of cocktails made with wine-based spirits and a lineup of mocktails to pair with breakfast and brunch.
“This plan has been underway for a while,” Sypesteyn said. “We wanted to see how the flow of the restaurant went before moving on with it.”
Sypesteyn has also made some menu changes at his neighboring restaurant, The Cookhouse, located at 720 E. Mistletoe Ave., and is now offering former lunch favorites such as fried boudin balls ($10) and a lineup of Louisiana style catfish and shrimp po’ boy sandwiches ($9) to the happy hour menu, which runs from 5 to 7 p.m.
