NEW ORLEANS – Broussard’s Restaurant & Courtyard is celebrating summer with a special prix fixe dinner menu featuring tomatoes in every dish. Chef Jimi Setchim has crafted specials for dinner service. These dishes are also available on the a la carte menu.
“June in South Louisiana means it’s tomato season,” said Chef Jimi. “Tomatoes are one of the most versatile vegetables we have, and they are so plentiful this time of year. On this menu, we use them fresh, smoked, roasted, and marinated, we use them in consommé, sauces, and as jam. There are so many delicious ways to enjoy them.”

The featured entrées are Roasted Airline Chicken Provencal with roasted tomatoes and truffled tomato jus, Seafood Bouillabaisse with spiced tomato broth, and Crispy Confit Duck Leg with smoked tomato sauce piquante. For dessert, Chef Jimi presents Whipped Mascarpone Mousse with summer berries, spiced tomato jam, candied fennel and milk chocolate biscotti and Cherry & Cherry Tomato Cobbler with ginger crust and buttermilk ice cream.
