Bistro
Located on a picturesque corner of the Vieux Carré, Meauxbar is a vibrant neighborhood gem. A typical evening finds an eclectic mix of French Quarter residents, locals from across the city, and out of town visitors. Accessible and smart, with a unique worldview, our food and beverage menus are reflected in locally-inspired, modern bistro fare by Executive Chef John Bel. Our bar program uses seasonal and local ingredients to provide fresh, unique cocktails and our carefully curated wine list pairs perfectly with dinner. Corkage Fee: $25.

    We ate the pate, tartare, escargot, hangar steak, and fish almandine. Everything was fabulously delicious! Service, ambiance, and delectible food. ...I wish I lived in New Orleans so I could go often.

    When you just can't face another plate of Cajun or Creole food, Meauxbar offers a tasty alternative. This small, buzzy spot across from Armstrong Park serves up modern takes on bistro cuisine. Our dinner experience was good - efficient service, an interesting menu, tasty food, and a fun atmosphere.

    Best fish I ever had! And I eat out a lot. We are filming in New Orleans- so lots of choices of fine food. But i will go back to Meauxbar when I come back just for another chance at that fish. The right amount of butter, perfectly cooked and the almondine is plentiful, toasted and delicious. Fine waitress ( very honest) good attention, warm ambience- nothing flashy about it- just feels a bit like you are in France.

    The food & cocktails were excellent, prepared & served with care. The highlight of the meal was a surprise- the frisée salad with Lyons style egg salad and lardons. Don’t take my word for it. And if you’re in the mood for an old standby, it is my new favorite for steak frites.

    We had a wonderful meal here over the Christmas holiday. The almond crusted fish was divine. Service was great. Our only compliant was that our particular table was seated lower and right next to the bar area. There was a couple above us and it felt a bit uncomfortable. Easily fixed by being seated elsewhere next time.
