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.
Open since early 2009, Picán has produced hundreds of events, from small, intimate dinner parties for 10 people, to restaurant-wide full-scale productions.
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 Southern inspired, California gourmet menus, professional wine pairing and specialty craft cocktails, Picán’s event staff works closely with you to create a memorable occasion!
