Joie De Vivre

After 40 years, Mr. B’s Bistro is just as lively and inspired as the day it first opened — a fact made evident by the delicious aromas and southern spirit that greet visitors at the revolving door. It’s this joie de vivre — a celebration of life, merriment and culture — that owner Cindy Brennan considers her driving force.

It’s been said that when you walk into Mr. B’s, you feel the amazing spirit of New Orleans,” Brennan said.

Brennan’s team is largely made up of long-term employees, creating an atmosphere imbued with the care and togetherness of a family. A recipient of the New Orleans Magazine Iberville Award and author of “The Mr. B’s Bistro Cookbook: Simply Legendary Recipes from New Orleans’s Favorite French Quarter Restaurant,” Brennan has used her expertise to craft an award-winning dining experience that celebrates all things New Orleans.

“I’ve taken my Aunt Ella’s mantra to heart,” Brennan said with her legendary joyful laugh. “‘Life is just a bowl of cherries, so live and laugh at it all.’”
