Creole Cuisine Restaurant Concepts opens a new location of its burger and sports bar spot The Bayou Burger & Sports Company at 3226 Magazine Street (in the former Salu space) on January 19. This is the first expansion of 2017 for the ever-growing local restaurant empire from the brothers Ammari— Zeid, Marv & Richey— who also have plans to open new spots in the former Maurepas Foods, Warehouse Grille and Barreca’s locations within the next year.
Creole Cuisine has expanded rapidly since December 2015, taking over the Tommy’s compound in the Warehouse District, opening a family friendly daiq shop in Metairie, debuting Boulevard American Bistro in Metairie's former Houston's location, Marché in the former Galvez space at French Market, and Creole House Restaurant & Oyster Bar in a former Arby's on Canal. The empire also operates numerous daiquiri shops and restaurants including Kingfish, Broussard’s, and the original Bayou Burger on Bourbon Street.
As for the new Bayou Burger location, you’ll find an extensive build-your-own and gourmet burger menu including the house specialty, The Gleason, named after former Saints star Steve Gleason, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2011 and now helps raise awareness for individuals with neuromuscular diseases through his nonprofit foundation Team Gleason.
The Gleason burger comes topped with house bacon, white cheddar, arugula, fried egg, avocado and truffle oil, and $1 from its purchase will go to support Team Gleason.
Bayou Burger also features booze, televised sports and non-burger menu items including appetizers of the loaded tot and nacho variety, tacos, sandwiches, salads, skillet fries, skillet mac and cheese, and even cookies and milk. It’s basically a giant bar snack menu.
Status: Officially opens January 19 at 3226 Magazine Street at 11 a.m. Hours: Sun-Sat, 11 a.m. until. (504) 224-6024. Website here.
