Mr. B’s Bistro is a restaurant in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.[1][2][3][4][5]


Mr. B’s Bistro opened in 1979 and is located in the French Quarter on the corner of Royal and Iberville Streets on the former site of Solari's Market.[6][7][8][9] Paul Prudhomme and Emeril Lagasse are two of its alumni.[6] Mr. B’s Bistro is managed by partner Cindy Brennan.[1][2][5]

The executive chef of Mr. B’s Bistro is Michelle McRaney.[2][3][6][10] Chef McRaney was preceded by Chef’s as Gerard Maras, Jimmy Smith and Emeril Lagasse.[10]

Hurricane Katrina severely damaged the restaurant in 2005, causing it to close.[2][4][6] In 2007, Mr. B’s Bistro was rebuilt to look the same as before the hurricane hit, and reopened.[4][6]

Cindy Brennan authored The Mr. B’s Bistro Cookbook: Simply Legendary Recipes From New Orleans’s Favorite French Quarter Restaurant (ISBN 0976300605).[11] The cookbook includes 112 recipes from the restaurant’s menu.[12]
