Signature Sucré Mardi Gras

Holiday Season at Sucré was full of laughs, cheer & a lot of Eggnog Chocolates!

Through the generous donations of our amazing customers (seriously we have the best) we were able to donate over 150 toys to the Ozanam Inn Forgotten Angels Christmas Party! Sucré also raised $2,286 from the proceeds of the featured Monsieur Claus dessert to be donated to Ozanam Inn. What a great way to end 2016!

CARINVAL CRAZINESS 2017

We have to admit, our favorite season is, you guessed it–Mardi Gras. Not trying to be biased, but hey we are after all in New Orleans. 

Carnival Tea at Salon by Sucré

Your choice of tea served with three selections of New Orleans inspired savory, baked & sweet treats. Selections include a fried chicken sandwich, mini muffuletta and king cake croissants giving tourists & locals alike a taste of the city’s traditional favorites. See full menu here.

Chef Tariq’s newest creation, Child’s Play (above), captures the bright soul & free spirit of children around the world. Made with white chocolate cheesecake mousse, fresh raspberry & caramel milk croquant, the flavors of this petit entremet are sure to bring out the inner child in all of us!

Sucré & Salon ‘Mustache’ You a Question…

mov-blog-header-01

Are you ready for No Shave November?

This month Sucré & Salon Restaurant will have a special Mustache Collection in honor of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.

We are all about the dudes this month & let’s just say we are taking this No Shave November thing pretty seriously.

Just as we did for Breast Cancer Awareness month, Sucré & Salon will donate proceeds of our selected Mustache Collection to support the Movember Foundationa charity devoted to addressing men’s health on a global scale. Movember’ is derived from the British spelling of the word ‘moustache’ combined with ‘November’ and encourages men to grow out facial hair to raise awareness for men’s health.

Sucré Mustache Collection

We will continue to sell our 15 piece Sazerac and Absinthe macaron collections in stores and online throughout the month as part of our Mustache Collection. We will also have a new MOUSSE-TACHE Dessert {White chocolate cheesecake mousse, fresh raspberry, caramel milk croquant}. (In stores only)

Salon Mustache Collection

The Salon Mustache Collection will include the Sazerand, our version of the classic Sazerac renamed after one of our bartenders, Rand, made with {Rye Whiskey, Sweet Vermouth, Simple Syrup, Angostura Bitters, Absinthe garnished with an orange peel}. Proceeds from our classic Mac n Cheese & Frizel Sticks will also support the Movember Foundation.

To bring further awareness to the Mustache movement, Sucré will have an Instagram contest held the first two weeks of November. The contest winner will receive a gift card to the Aidan Gill For Men salon and a free appetizer & cocktail from Salon!

  1. Post a picture of yourself rockin your No Shave November mustache/beard in one of our locations (or Salon) using the hashtag #sucrestache.
  2. The top two entries will be posted side-to-side on our Instagram page for a “Face Off’. The person with the most comments will win the contest.
  3. As stated above, the winners will receive a $40 gift card to Aidan Gill for Men and a free appetizer & cocktail from Salon.
    1. The deadline to enter for the Face Off will be 9 a.m. on November 11.
    2. ‘Voting’ via comments will be open November 12-13. We will announce the winner on November 14. May the best beard win!

Sucré & Salon encourage you to sport your facial hair loud & proud and visit us this month to try out Mustache Collection for a great cause. We are looking forward to making this the best No Shave November yet!

A Sweet September

thumbnail_cc-blog-header-01

September is always such an exciting month: children embark on a new school year, Fall begins & football is in full swing–and Sucré & Salon were not behind on this year’s September frenzy.

Sucré took a twist on the annual Cupcake Challenge and created Cupcakes & Cocktails, a fundraiser to benefit four diverse nonprofit organizations based out of New Orleans. Sucré & Salon were able to donate to The Louisiana SPCA, Second Harvest Food Bank, Son of a Saint and NOCCA from the proceeds of what other than our signature cupcakes and cocktails. The fundraiser took place throughout the month of September, with a week dedicated to each of the four organizations listed above. We raised over a total of $2,000 to give to the admirable nonprofits in hopes that our donations will help them continue to make New Orleans a better place, and in hopes to inspire others to #ShareTheSweetnees.

The transactions of cupcakes and cocktails were not the only thing that took place during September. Check out what else happened behind the scenes:

The Louisiana SPCA

spcaspcarachelpuppyyy

What’s better than sweets & puppies? Both of them Together. The Louisiana SPCA held an adoption event at Sucré Lakeside in September to find these pups a new home and to bring awareness to their organization. While dropping off the donation check to Dean and Preston (pictured above), Rachel was lucky enough to meet Grumble, arguably the cutest, most photogenic puppy EVER. (He’s up for adoption guys!) We are looking forward to working with these guys again for Howlin’ for Success in November.

Second Harvest Food Bank

sucre-check-presentation

In light of the recent flooding in Louisiana, we knew that this organization would be super special. In addition to our planned donation, each Sucré store served as a donation center for Second Harvest Food Bank to further contribute to the relief efforts of the catastrophic flooding. Customers received 5% off their purchase for all donated items brought to Sucré locations. Rachel was able to bring a large box filled to the top with food that was given as a gift from our lovely Sucré clientele. To learn more about how you can stop hunger, click here.

Son of a Saint

On Thursday September 22nd, Salon by Sucré held a special happy hour event from 4-7 p.m. to benefit Son of a Saint. Sonny (Son of a Saint Founder, above right, middle) & Lauren (above left, far left) from the organization arrived to our French Quarter location with T-shirts, photographs, informational pamphlets and pens & paper for guests to write inspiring messages to the young men in the program. We had a lovely turnout at the happy hour with plenty mixing and mingling (with the cocktails too of course). Drink proceeds directly benefitted Son of a Saint. Learn more about the organization and purchase tickets to their 4th Annual Gala here.

NOCCA

During the last week of our fundraiser, Chef Tariq made a special appearance at NOCCA’s culinary school, teaching the students about the origin, anatomy and creation of chocolate. Students were able to fully engage in the lesson by tasting over ten different types of chocolate brought in by Tariq. With not enough time to share all of his knowledge, Chef promised to return to the school to have a lesson on Éclairs. One of the students shared her personal thoughts on the class here. We’ll see you soon, NOCCA!

A special thanks to the Sucré & Salon staff and a HUGE thank you to all who came out and supported Cupcakes & Cocktails – you are the reason we were able to #ShareTheSweetness with these wonderful organizations! We are already looking forward to next year!

Think Pink with Sucré and Salon

October 2016

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is national Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Sucré and Salon are THINKING PINK to bring awareness to this important issue!

After a month of donating to several NOLA nonprofits in September, Sucré and Salon wanted to continue giving to charitable organizations that give so much hope, health and happiness to the city of New Orleans and beyond.

During the month of October, Sucré will be selling Think Pink Strawberry Macarons and Think Pink Desserts to benefit the Breast Cancer Awareness Research Foundation.

webThink Pink Strawberry Macaron:

8 piece & 15 piece Think Pink Macaron Collections will also be available on our Sucré Website.

Pair your pink confections with two rosé selections at Salon, located above our French Quarter boutique. A portion of the proceeds will also go to the Breast Cancer Awareness Research Foundation.

If you are new to Sucré, this month is the perfect time to visit one of our three retail locations. Purchasing confections from our Think Pink Collection will let you experience the signature Sucré brand while benefiting a great cause.

We hope to see you soon!

Southern Sno Balls, Macaron Style

When it comes to creating new flavors in our kitchen, Chef Tariq bases his creative process on reinterpreting comfort food and capturing the essence of classic Americana. As many of you know, nothing describes a sweltering summer in the south quite like Sno Balls. These icy treats are an undeniable staple to the New Orleans summer diet, and it’s not just because they’re incredibly refreshing–they cool us down with flavors that are so unique that we rarely get to taste them at any other time of year, or in any way except poured over shaved ice. Two of our favorites are Nectar Cream and Creamsicle, which Tariq and his team have turned into our newest Limited Edition collection of macarons.
Our Nectar Cream macaron is filled with a white chocolate ganache and boasts the classic vanilla and almond flavoring we know as nectar cream. And of course, it’s hot pink! For the Creamsicle macaron, Tariq and Sara took another Louisiana specialty–Satsumas–and made a citrusy white chocolate ganache to fill the orange shell.
Summer doesn’t last, and neither will these flavors! Get them online and in stores for a very limited time! We can’t wait to hear how you all like them!

Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara Give the Sweetest Gifts in NOLA

Now that New Orleans has become the hot spot for Hollywood filming, we’ve learned to be star-struck without going crazy. So when Reese Witherspoon came in to our Magazine Street store yesterday, we kept our cool while she shopped around (and then we proceeded to go home and binge watch Legally Blonde and Sweet Home Alabama of course).

But then Sofia Vergara posed with some of our desserts and made us look pretty on her Instagram!

Sofia Vergara
Sofia is holding our Dacquoise Rouqe, and in the box she has a Lait Praline,  Summer Berry Verrine, a S’more’s Skillet, and an S&M.

 
And how did Sofia show her thanks for a gift as sweet as Sucré? Monogrammed linens from Leontine Linens of course!
Leontine Linens

What a perfect exchange of Magazine Street gifts!

A huge thank you to these lovely ladies for making us part of their last days on-set in NOLA. We hope you come back soon!
