The Canefield Tavern is set to open by the first or sec- ond week of October at 5251 Nicholsen. It will be open seven days a week, serving breakfast, lunch and din- ner, said David Smith, one of the owners. The restaurant will serve a mix of Southern dishes, including made to or- der fried chicken, shrimp and grits, fresh vegetables dishes, "a killer carrot cake," and salads. "We're going to serve clas- sic Southern dishes," Smith said. "We're going to have a small amount of seafood, but stay away from having a lot of fried dishes because we're so close to Mike Anderson's." The Canefield Tavern also will have a bar with an emphasis on Louisiana and Mississippi craft beers and small-baW.h bourbon and whiskey. There will be an expresso machine in the bar, so in the morning the tavern can sell coffee and expresso to students, faculty and em- ployees headed to LSU. About 30 people are ex- pected to work in the res- taurant. Lunches will be $12 and under, while most din- ners will cost $16 or less Smith said. Smith and his bllsmes~ partner, Doug Hary, own fi-a: restaurants in the Frenct Quarter and Central Bu,,5 ness District: Vacherie, Eat New Orleans, Cafe Con~i Cafe at the Square aad Be tween the Bread.
