About (from their website)

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.
