Private Dining: Holiday Parties at Bar Frances

Holiday Party New Orelans

No matter the occasion or the company, a special dining experience is a perfect celebration to cap off another year of hard work, friendship and fun. So, why not have that experience with us? This holiday season at Bar Frances, we’re offering a myriad of private dining options with an exclusive menu that is sure to be a treat for everyone. 

Our private dining holiday menu has both three-course or four-course menu options—each with coffee, tea, and soda included—for $38 and $48 per person respectively. The three-course menu offers one appetizer, soup, or salad; one entrée; and one dessert while the four-course menu allows for both an appetizer and the option of a soup or salad with an entrée and a dessert. Please keep in mind that we can also create a customized menu specific to your individual groups.

Here are a few of the delicacies you can look forward to if you join us for private dining in the coming months:


Appetizers, Soups & Salads

To kick off your dining experience, take your pick from options like our Mushroom and Goat Cheese Croquettes, Smoked Trout Deviled Eggs with crispy capers, or maybe our Lamb Meatballs with edamame purée and cauliflower chow-chow

If you’d prefer something lighter, Bar Frances offers a Market Salad, served with baby greens, seasonal fruit, parmesan, sunflower seeds, and pink peppercorn vinaigrette. We also offer a Beet Salad with duck ham, pumpkin seed brittle, blue cheese, dates, and horseradish vinaigrette.

Whether hot or chilled, you can never go wrong with a flavorful soup! Your private dining menu will include either our Chilled Yellow Tomato Soup with radish, fine herbs, and saba or our Roasted Yellow Squash Soup with shishito peppers and chives. 



For the main course, diners may choose from three of six rotating entrées. 

These dishes include a classic butcher’s cut of Steak and Frites served with Argentinian chimichurri, Roasted Airline Breast Chicken with burrata, lentils, wild mushrooms, and chicken jus, or Cassoulet with duck confit, garlic sausage, and pork belly. Whichever dish you choose is sure to evoke the warm, homey feel of the season, even if you’re far from home.  

If you’d rather indulge in some seafood, our three menu options range the spectrum of flavors to give patrons a peek into just how much fun we have in the kitchen.

Try our Prince Edward Island Mussels with pistachio pesto, malt vinegar, and dill chips or perhaps the zing of our Shrimp Arrabiatta Rigatoni with spicy ground shrimp, blistered market tomatoes, oregano, basil, crispy capers, lemon, and saba. You also have the option of our special Gulf Fish with new potatoes, romesco, saffron, piperade, and citrus salad. 



No dining experience–nor holiday party–is complete without dessert. Wrap up your special occasion with either Buttermilk Pie with seasonal preserves or Lemon and Thyme Pots de Crème.
