Duke LoCicero is a familiar name in New Orleans dining. For his next act, the chef is planning a new restaurant to bring something a little different to Metairie. He’s now developing Dab’s at 3401 N. Hullen St., which he plans to open by Sept. 1. LoCicero describes Dab's as a New Orleans bistro, and it will have some of the signature dishes from the chef’s former restaurant Café Giovanni (namely, oysters Giovanni with its “stained glass” pattern of sauces).

Dab’s, however, will have late-night hours (until 2 a.m. Thursday through Sunday). Its bar will have perpetual happy hour pours (twice the liquor), with a specialty in bourbon and whiskey. And the menu will offer “flights” of dishes, for a quicker, small plates version of a chef’s tasting menu.
