The crew behind Baton Rouge’s popular Curbside food truck are bringing their grub to a brick-and-mortar store in New Orleans. Owner Nick Hufft said the bar of Barcadia, 601 Tchopitoulas St., wNew Orleans, will open soon. The menu will feature Curbside’s burgers — known as repeat offenders — and some of their best-selling specials, including the KGB, a burger topped with a fried egg; and the Brian, which features the truck’s pork belly preserves.
“We’re taking the concept of (a) smaller menu with lots of weekly specials,” Hufft said in an email. “We have access to so many amazing farmers that have so many amazing products here in Louisiana.” Hufft said Barcadia will also offer appetizers, such as fried pickles, pork cheek meat pies, Vietnamese wings and more. Furthermore, the restaurant will take the food a step beyond the truck. Barcadia’s frites, for instance, will be fried in duck fat.
