Private Dining –– Picán Style!
Capturing the essence of a grand, 19th Century Antebellum-style St. Charles Street home, Picán owner/founder and New Orleans native Michael LeBlanc brings to life genuine, genial Southern hospitality, with the flavors, the feel, the richness of occasion that makes "Southern" the epitome of gracious entertaining. The atmosphere, the ambiance is inclusive, welcoming. The environment – traditional meets urban chic.
Private dining at Picán is more than booking a venue space. It is a carefully prepared, complete experience. From start to finish, entrance to exit, every detail is tended to. From room configurations, tablescaping, party favors and decor to menus, professional wine pairing and specialty craft cocktails, we work closely with you to create a memorable occasion. The result is a magical environment for celebratory, elegant events ranging from bridal showers and wedding receptions, Anniversary, graduation and birthday celebrations to uniquely refined corporate dining and entertainment. Picán makes your event sparkle!
