NEW ORLEANS-Fulton St. Bistro | Bar, located at 700 Fulton St., is joining a cool collection of some 60 New Orleans restaurants offering a COOLinary New Orleans Menu to provide patrons an incentive to beat the heat by dining out in August.

Available Monday through Saturday throughout the month of August, the new French-inspired restaurant's COOLinary menus feature a choice of three courses for a special promotional price of $19 at lunch or $39 at dinner (tax and gratuity not included).

Fulton Street Bistro | Bar's COOLinary luncheon menu offers a choice of Caesar salad, chicken and Andouille gumbo and fried green tomatoes topped with sautéed shrimp to start; Pepper Jack Chicken Breast topped with sautéed onions, diced bacon and pepper jack cheese in an herb cream sauce or pecan-crusted catfish with Creole Meunière sauce and maque choux for the entrée; and bread pudding with rum sauce for dessert.

The dinner menu includes a choice of three courses, including corn and crab bisque, spinach salad or honey aiola shrimp on a bed of spinach to start, and New Orleans BBQ Shrimp, crawfish pie, and shrimp and tasso fettucini for entrées. For dessert, diners can choose banana nut bread topped with praline sauce and vanilla ice cream or white chocolate bread pudding.

Participating restaurants offer diners two- and three-course lunch menus for $20 and under, and three-course dinner menus available for $39 and under.

Reminiscent of a vintage street bistro, the relaxed atmosphere at Fulton St. Bistro | Bar along with its outdoor café seating along Fulton Street, provides the perfect place for social gatherings, group happy hours or as a destination to unwind after a long day. The restaurant's specialty gin bar and artisanal cocktail menu features New Orleans' classics such as the Ramos Gin Fizz, a Riverfront Gimlet, and its rendition of the French 75 champagne cocktail.
