Status: Opens Thursday, May 22
Todd A. Price reports that Meauxbar is reopening this Thursday, May 22, after a serious revamp from owner Robert Le Blanc and the Ste. Marie team, who have closed up shop in the CBD for the switcheroo. Chef Kristen Essig brings her three-bean hotness to the revamped bistro at 942 N. Rampart, with a new menu including hits from Ste. Marie, interpretations of several former Meauxbar favorites like sweetbreads and escargot, and entrees topping out at $26. Her intention: "We wanted it to be less of a special occasion place, and more of an everyday place."
Add in the staff and furniture from Ste. Marie, a new floor, and paint job, and Meauxbar is ready to roll it out daily for dinner, and for brunch on Sundays as well.
