201 Royal Street, New Orleans, LA
So, this is another one of those overdue/back-burner pieces.
Better late than never, right?
Located in the French Quarter, and coming highly recommended from many a source on the world wide web, my first impression of Mr. B’s was that it seemed more suited towards a 40+ suit crowd.
Suits and in our case, bibs.
The bibs for de-shelling the shrimps in Mr. B’s signiture BBQ shrimp dish!
(Gulf shrimp barbequed New Orleans style, served in the shells with a peppery butter sauce, and French bread for dipping $18.00)
Apart from the de-shelling, this dish was fantastic! And I love that they share the recipe online!
The other dish was less painful. Also, a bit bland. Catfish with beans (Pecan crusted farm raised catfish topped with Creole meuniere sauce $15.00 )
The fried oysters $6.75 were excellent.
Blueberry Cobbler $8, perfectly old fashioned.
Suits or not, bibs or not…Mr. B’s Bistro is everything you imagine “N’awlins” to be.
