Faubourg Bistro Brings Creative Bar Fare to Maple Street

It’s the French Quarter bar kitchen’s first restaurant

Faubourg Bistro’s first stand-alone restaurant opened Uptown yesterday (June 13), almost four years after owner Matt Hayes started serving wide-ranging bar food out of the back of the French Quarter’s 700 Club.

The kitchen known for its creative late-night food and free neighborhood bike delivery took over 7537 Maple Street, a corner building that’s been empty since Three Muses Uptown closed two years ago in a series of depressing pre-summer shutters. Hayes made light renovations to the space, adding a lunch counter along the front windows and making updates behind the bar.

The Uptown restaurant has the same menu as the original, with casual, crowd-pleasing items like mac and cheese bites, a wedge salad, sandwiches like burgers, fried chicken, and finger foods like wings, including the “PBB&J” wings with Thai-style peanut sauce, crumbled bacon, and spiced grape jelly sauce. Hayes is adding desserts to the Maple Street offerings, a “homemade take on ice cream truck treats and Little Debbie cakes.”

Faubourg Bistro is open seven days a week, Monday through Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., until midnight Thursday through Saturday, and until 4 p.m. on Sunday. The Faubourg Bistro kitchen in the 700 Club will remain open.
