The Vieux Carré Commission is scheduled to hold a final hearing Wednesday on a restaurant proposed for the French Quarter. A year-long battle with residents over the project will likely continue, no matter what’s decided.
Sean Meenan wants open a two-story open-air Cuban restaurant at North Rampart Street and Esplanade Avenue. He operates two similar establishments in New York City and one in Malibu, California.
But neighbors of the proposed Habana Outpost say it’s too big, and it doesn’t belong where the Quarter also borders the historic Tremé and Marigny neighborhoods.
