Beginning August 1 and running through the month
Salu Bistro and Bar is excited for its 2nd Annual Mussel Fest, beginning this Saturday, August 1st and running throughout the month of August. Mussel Fest goes beyond the traditional mussel dish and highlights a special menu surrounding “all things mussels.” Salu’s everyday menu includes over eight types of mussels (more than any other New Orleans restaurant!), which have become a major staple and the inspiration behind Mussel Fest.
Executive Chef Dustin Brien’s Mussel Fest menu features two of last year’s customer favorites, the Smoked Mussels & Tomato Bisque and Mussels Cioppino with jumbo shrimp, bay scallops, drum, stewed tomatoes, red wine and grilled sourdough (photos below). The menu also includes a few additional new items: Mussel & Anchovy Escabeche with citrus, jalapeño, tarragon, radish and grilled sourdough; Warm Mussel Flatbread with pepperoncini, cherry tomato, feta and cucumber yogurt; and Mussels Carbonara with summer peas, pork belly, sheep’s milk cheese and bucatini. The menu is served a la carte, or can be served as a prefixe meal for $37.

The Institute of Women and Ethnic Studies is organizing a two-day conference to centralize the ongoing struggles and resiliency of communities of color in post-Katrina New Orleans. This conference coincides with the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and brings together international, national and local thought leaders to discuss recovery, community resilience and place. This concept of resilience will be problematized within the context of disaster in communities that struggle with chronic and toxic stress. A key component will be exploring the role of culture as a protective factor against chronic stress; and the potential for transformation through resilience.
