Kitchen in the Garden

An outdoor kitchen in the New Orleans Botanical Garden

Chef Pat White serve up delicious dishes -- with fresh, locally-grown ingredients -- every Wednesday. To peruse the Kitchen in the Garden menu, and place your Wednesday-evening order, click here.

Family and individual options are available. No outside food or drink allowed. Wednesday's menu typically goes live at 10am the Monday prior. Seating in the Garden is limited -- guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs (and find a shady spot!).

Our outdoor Kitchen in the Garden serves as a hub for food education and culinary training. Programming at this facility focuses on nutrition and healthy living, composting and environmental stewardship through hands-on gardening and cooking events and classes. Fresh vegetables and herbs are harvested straight from the Vegetable Garden and move directly to the Kitchen in the Garden for up-close lessons offering a garden-to-table experience demonstrating the connection between gardening and healthy cooking while highlighting seasonal selections and local cuisines.
