Our Story

Bienvenue à Bistro Byronz. It’s been awhile since our original restaurants closed their doors and served the last Big Byronz sandwich and bowl of Corn and Shrimp Soup to our friends and family in Baton Rouge. But we, as we hear from many of you, have not forgotten. That’s why after almost 20 years we’re happy to be back in Baton Rouge, Shreveport, Mandeville (and more locations soon) with our new neighborhood bistros.

Why Bistro Byronz you say? It’s the definition of a Louisiana Bistro (bistro: an unpretentious neighborhood restaurant where people gather day and night to relax, share conversation and enjoy good food at a reasonable price). From our bistro-casual eat-in and take-out lunch menu, to our new bistro-fare and full-service dinner and drinks menus, we think we’ve got just the perfect recipe that combines some great French flavor with our own Louisiana Spice. You’ll notice it in the feel of the place itself, the casual, but attentive service and of course in the menu.

Yes, we still remember the Byronz promise of “Homemade is Good” and many of your favorite dishes are back—like Byronz bread, fresh and hot sandwiches (the Big Byronz), savory soups (Corn and Shrimp), special salads (the Byronz Chef), decadent deserts (Heavenly Hash) and home-fried to order potato chips. Along with all of that, we’ve taken it up a notch with our dinner menu of “Good. Real Good” food—from Steak Frites, to Chicken Paillard, Sesame-crusted Tuna and beaucoup more. Not to mention our Bistro Bar, which offers our one-of-a-kind Byronz Freeze, a large selection of wines by the glass, and of course, real cold beer on tap.

Bistro Byronz is that great place in cities across Louisiana where people and families of all kinds can come together—for lunch, dinner and drinks—to enjoy one another’s company and feel free to catch up, linger, have a business meeting, laugh and just hang out. Most importantly, we hope we’ve built a place where you will feel that you’re part of what’s Good. Real Good. That’s our promise to ourselves. To all of you who have known us. And to those of you who will come to know us in the near future.
