The historic Bywater neighborhood abuts Faubourg Marigny, stretching from the railroad tracks at Homer Plessy Way to the Industrial Canal about a mile and change downriver from the French Quarter. With a mix of residential and commercial space along the Mississippi, it used to be considered gritty. Back in the day, tourists cabbed in to hear Kermit Ruffins play a weekly gig at Vaughan’s on a Thursday night, but there wasn’t much else to recommend.
Fast forward 15 years and Bywater is a red hot address, with a smattering of funky eateries ranging from budget to highbrow. St. Claude Avenue in particular is alive with activity, with options ranging from wine bars to a Honduran breakfast restaurant. Without further delay, here are the best of the area.
