Bayou Breakfast Will Bring Diner Fare To Faubourg St. John in July

The restaurant will open this summer in the former Tutti Frutti space on Esplanade and Grand Route St. John.

Yelp/Michelle B.

Faubourg St. John is getting a new diner Bayou Breakfast this summer, Ian McNulty reports. The restaurant will be housed in the former De Blanc Pharmacy building that housed shortlived soy-yogurt chain Tutti Frutti back in 2013 (at 311 Grand Route St. John, next to The Half Shell):

The new restaurant will include a diner counter and table service... breakfast and lunch and weekend brunch to begin, with a breakfast-all-day menu, and eventually... dinner.

No word on if there will be booze or not. Owners Derek Villavaso and wife Idolka Villavaso—they also operate music venue Vaso on Frenchmen—will open a juice bar, Joose Heaven, in the Warehouse District in August as well.
