KIMPTON HOTEL FONTENOT HOSTS VISUAL ARTIST JAY MCKAYFOR A SPECIAL WHITE LINEN NIGHT ART INSTALLATION
Kimpton Hotel Fontenot will host New Orleans visual artist Jay McKay for his art installation, F#ↃK I SPILT MY PAINT, during White Linen Night on Saturday, August 5, from 6 to 9 p.m. The event is free to attend and open to the public.
The evening begins in King, the hotel’s newly opened French brasserie and bar, where White Linen guests will head inside the restaurant, stop in for a drink at the bar, and make their way to the hotel’s cocktail lounge, Peacock Room, for the full installation featuring Jay’s artwork and the tunes of DJ Spinelli.
Specialty cocktails will be available at both Peacock Room and King. And of course, Peacock Room favorites will also be served up, including All Ships Rise with Pineapple Rum, Aveze, house-made Habanero. King’s lineup of delicious beverages also features drinks like the Cote d’Azur with La Favorite Agricole Rhum, Giffard Abricot Lemon, and Orgeat.
For White Linen Night guests looking to sit down for a meal with their night out, King brasserie & bar will have a full menu available. Executive Chef Samuel Peery’s menu rooted in the beloved brasseries of the French Riviera region while weaving in the flavors and traditions of New Orleans features many memorable dishes. Among the favorites are the Crawfish Beignets with crab fat aioli, the Grilled Octopus with a vadouvan and sweet potato curry and lardons of Benton’s bacon to give it a smoky finish, and the King Carbonara with a sauce made from sea urchin, reduced cream and parmesan. And don’t forget the King Bread Service.
But reservations are recommended for anyone looking to sit and dine while at the event. Otherwise, space will be available on a first come, first served basis.
