Carrollton Market and Josephine Estelle have announced specials for family-style meals this summer.
Uptown bistro Carrollton Market (8132 Hampson St., 504-252-9928; www.carrolltonmarket.com) is extending its weekend brunch service and adding a weekly family-style dinner event for summer.
Chef/owner Jason Goodenough and his team will serve a three-course family-style dinner every Wednesday from June 28 through the end of July.
"We'll shop the Crescent City Farmers Market, gather fresh and abundant ingredients and cook dishes for families to enjoy on Wednesday night," Goodenough said in a prepared statement. "As a father of two young daughters, I know mealtime can be a hassle, but also valuable family time. We want to make that experience as enjoyable as possible."
Menus will change weekly depending on what is in season, and the dinners ($30 for adults, $10 for kids) include an appetizer, entree, dessert and unlimited house lemonade. For $10, adults can get a bottomless glass of house wine.
The restaurant also is extending brunch hours to 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.
Italian restaurant Josephine Estelle (Ace Hotel, 600 Carondelet St., 504-930-3070; www.josephineestelle.com) is offering a family-style special. The first Monday of every month, the restaurant serves an Italian family supper for $35 per person. The menu changes monthly and sample dishes include squid with endive, peanut, mint salsa verde and leek vinaigrette; gnocchi a la Romana made with oxtail, short rib and gremolata; and tiramisu.
