Green Plate Special

Casa Borrega

Tuesdays in May

Check out our weekly Green Plate Special at the Tuesday Market. Each month we invite a local chef to be our chef-in-residence. They dream up fresh, affordable plate lunches that showcase the local, seasonal ingredients available at the CCFM. Meet a friend for lunch, or pick up dinner & take a night off from cooking.

What’s Cooking?

May 26, 2015

This Tuesday is Casa Borrega’s last day with us under the Green Plate Special tent for the month of May. We’ve enjoyed all they’ve prepared for us this month from market fresh quesadillas and tostadas, to ceviche and iced horchata. We’re sad to see the sights and smells of authentic Mexican street cuisine leave the market, but we’re excited to see what they’ll be bringing out on their last market this Tuesday! Be on standby as we hop across to the other side of the globe next month as we welcome the popular Burmese pop-up Lahpet to market!

We’ve been having a blast with Casa Borrega out at market this month. Last week they were grilling up some market fresh quesadillas and ladling some delicious iced horchata for market-goers. Can’t wait to see what they’re bringing out this Tuesday!

We had a great time with Casa Borrega under the GPS tent last week, and after market at their rockin’ Cinco de Mayo celebration! If you missed out on their Ceviche Tostada or didn’t get a chance to try their delicious house-made horchata, don’t miss out this Tuesday!

We’re so excited to have Casa Borrega out as our GPS vendors for the Month of May! If you’ve been to Casa Borrega than you know their food is great and so is the atmosphere they create at their 1719 O.C. Haley restaurant. This Tuesday they’ll be helping us celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the right way by serving up some Mexican ceviche tostadas for lunch and horchata to wash it all down. Then after market, continue the Cinco de Mayo and GiveNOLA Day celebration with us at Casa Borrega starting at 5pm!
