Bywater American Bistro

American in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

This modern American restaurant in a former rice mill uses local ingredients and impeccable technique to compose inventive, flavorsome dishes. Many, like the warmly spiced rabbit curry, draw inspiration from owner Nina Compton's native Caribbean, but the menu is a melting pot of influences. Try the bresaola-style tuna toast or pickled shrimp (a variation on ceviche).
