Best BBQ shrimp in NOLA
One of my faves from my last trip to #NOLA, I had to go back to @MrBsBistro to get their #BarbequedShrimp. A Mr. B's signature dish, with giant shell-on gulf #shrimp barbequed #NewOrleans style, served with an addictive peppercorn butter sauce and hot crusty French bread for dipping . This is a delicious messy affair and you get bibbed up like a happy child before it is served. Pair with a $1.50 lunch #BloodyMary and I'm good to go.

Eats and Night Sights in New Orleans
We had that early appetizer because we met my Louisiana relatives for the real deal later at Mr. B’s Bistro (201 Royal St.).
It has that old-fashioned feel of a steakhouse or Italian restaurant for your big night out on the town but the food is upscale Creole and Southern. Big, leather booths, lots of people chattering in great spirits.
I had their tasting menu, which is always offered and includes three courses for about $50. Not a steal, but not too bad, either. The gumbo ya ya was my first course, and it was delicious, though my cousin-in-law Jenny claims she can make it better.
Since her children backed her up, I’m quite willing to believe it.
The trout almondine was executed well, although it lacked inventiveness. The roasted lemon was a nice touch. My husband was happy with his braised rabbit served with garlic mashed potatoes.
One dish to be sure to try, and I’m still not sure why I didn’t beyond having only met my cousin-in-law Zach a few minutes earlier, was the barbecue shrimp.
It’s closer to a mussels dish than barbecue yet manages to be finger-lickin’ good all the same.
Dessert was more bread pudding, which always makes me happy. No finesse, but it was simply done and didn’t need it.
Mr. B’s Bistro in New Orleans, LA
I had avoided this restaurant earlier because I was under the impression that it was a tourist-y place but then I found out that a lot of locals love the BBQ shrimp here and so we decided to make the trip over. We got really lucky with parking on Canal st but then again it was early for Sunday brunch.
As soon as we sat down, we ordered the BBQ shrimp as an appetizer. I’m so glad we did because as soon as we finished ordering our main entrees, the BBQ shrimp smelled delicious! And it came out with a loaf of bread cuz we were taking turns soaking up the sauce with the bread. Usually I don’t like to peel shrimps but this was well worth it. I’m so glad they brought out plastic bibs for us because it got messy! and it tasted delicious!
shrimp and grits
Joe had the bacon wrapped shrimp with grits. I love grits! I kept stealing bites of his grits. I tried one of his shrimps which was also succulent with a nice bite from the bacon. Delicious!
filet mignon with truffle eggs
I got the filet mignon and was surprised by how small it was. What really drew me to this dish was the scrambled eggs made with truffle oil. It tasted especially good with filet mignon on the fork. This dish wasn’t as stellar as the shrimp and grits.
I visited Mr. B's last April for my school's prom. The party was just my girlfriend and I. The food and atmosphere was wonderful. At first, I expected it to be extremely pricy, but it was nowhere near as bad as other restaurants we visited for dances. The best part of our trip to Mr. B's was that the manager paid for our food when he noticed how much fun we were having. I would definitely visit Mr. B's Bistro again.
