Bar & Grille


14th Annual Bar & Grille Cooking Competition

Sunday, April 17, 2016 at City Park's Peristyle 

The New Orleans Bar & Grille is the law firm cooking competition that raises money for legal services to the poor.

The Young Lawyers Section of the New Orleans Bar Association will hold the 14th annual New Orleans Bar & Grille. Teams of amateur chefs from local companies and law firms will participate in a cook off at the Peristyle in City Park.  The event offers family, friends, and the general public plenty of entertainment including free drinks, and, of course, a sampling of the dishes that are prepared on site. Although teams are not limited in what particular dish they prepared, teams compete for Best Local Favorite, Best Dessert, Most Creative, Best Booth Decoration, Crowd Favorite, and Best Overall. All proceeds to benefit Southeast Louisiana Legal Services, a nonprofit law firm founded to provide free legal assistance to low-income persons in civil cases.
