COVID-19 We value the health of our staff, our guests, and our city. We are taking every measure to ensure that our restaurant is as sanitary as possible for all who step foot through our doors. Our entire dining room and kitchen are deep cleaned twice daily, and sanitized on a constant basis. Our staff is diligent about washing their hands, and sanitation stations are set up throughout the restaurant for both staff and guests to use. Menus and pens are sanitized or discarded after every use, and single-use items are being utilized whenever possible. If you have any questions, please reach out to us directly at 504-605-3827, and ask to speak to a manager. We look forward to welcoming you in!
Bywater American Bistro is an American neighborhood restaurant. To us, it’s a place you come because you’re already friends of ours, or you soon will be. A casual energetic place with yummy food, authentic hospitality, great libations and friendly faces.
We’re cooking ingredient driven food where inspiration comes from our personal experiences or one of the many cultures represented in our area, past and present. Our cooking is also inspired by small local farms, using ingredients that are seasonal and raised or caught with care.
New Orleans is our home. It’s a place with an amazing sense of community, where we’ve created meaningful relationships and met some extraordinary people along the way. We’re excited to continue learning new things about the region and the people, like us, who call it home.
