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.
