Congratulations to Ursa Major, now open in The Paramount! The unique, zodiac-driven restaurant from the brains behind Booty’s Street Food is open for lunch, dinner, and happy hour at 611 O’Keefe Ave.

The Advocate‘s Ian McNulty was the first to report on the opening, writing that Ursa Major is “shaping up to be a head-turner that may also raise some eyebrows … with some marked departures from some of the standard operating procedures for New Orleans restaurants.” These include a menu inspired by cultures with strong ties to the stars, a cocktail list based on the zodiac, interactive light fixtures, and a new ticketed reservation system currently being piloted by some of the top restaurants in the country.

Ursa Major joins Blaze Pizza, Stonefree, barre3, Arhaus Furniture, and Hattie Sparks, all currently open in the South Market District. Ursa Major is open from Mon-Thu 11 AM-10 PM, Fri 11 AM-11 PM, Sat 5-11 PM, and Sun 5-10 PM.
