MARIGNY (WGNO) – Dat Dog is now on Frenchmen Street!
The New Orleans restaurant will serve its signature sausages, wieners, fries and toppings in the Marigny neighborhood at the corner of Frenchmen and Chartres.
Dat Dog’s Frenchmen Street location incorporates the same menu, happy color scheme and whimsical environment as the Freret and Magazine stores, but also includes table service and a large wrap around balcony off an upstairs dining room and bar.
Erected on a vacant lot, Dat Dog on Frenchmen is entirely new construction intentionally built to fit in and resemble the historic vibe of the fabled street.
“We are thrilled to join the thriving music, food and culture scene of Frenchmen Street,” said Dat Dog’s founder and operator Constantine Georges said in a release.
“As locals, we know and appreciate the funky aspect of Frenchmen and the importance of the street to both visitors and locals. Dat Dog looks forward to being a good neighbor and great restaurant addition to the block,” he said.
In homage to the street’s history, Georges commissioned local artists Monica and Madeleine Kelly to paint a floor to ceiling mural of what used to take place on the empty lot now home to Dat Dog.
In the art work, hula hoopers, buskers and other personalities are depicted performing on the corner of Chartres and Frenchmen. An illuminated “Cafe Brasil” sign graces the background, a salute to the long-defunct and popular music club that once operated across the street from Dat Dog.
Dat Dog Frenchmen Street opens at 11 a.m. every day for lunch and dinner. 504.309.3362.
