|EMBRACE THE DETOURS…|
|Street food from around the world, globally-inspired cocktails, Stumptown Coffee and WiFi. Oh, and a hidden art gallery.
Booty’s Street Food is an affordable seat with a view: we’ve been collecting food and drink that we love the most from around the world, and presenting it in a fun menu with almost everything under $10.
Inspired by owner Nick Vivion’s travels as a travel journalist, the menu spans the globe. From Nigeria to Nicaragua, it’s an affordable seat with a view, offering a world palate in a shareable feast.
Right down the block in Bywater, LA, we’re serving it up hot, fresh and friendly – no jet engine needed.
Chef Greg Fonseca is a street food geek, preferring the fun of cooking street food to any other style of cuisine. Chef takes dishes he has tried elsewhere, and brings them together with his own perspective on the plate, cone or skewer.
Booty’s has a full bar and speedy-as-sin WiFi, with Stumptown Coffee and Shake Shugary pastries from 9am everyday. Brunch starts at 9am on the weekends.
BSF also enjoys creating a thoughtful footprint in the world. We offer health insurance to our employees, we compost, we recycle (including glass) and offer as much bike parking as possible.

Nick Vivion is a travel filmmaker with over 2.5 million views of his travel videos on YouTube, and currently is the US reporter for international travel technology media brand Tnooz. Some of his most popular videos – and the most fun to make! – were videos shot eating the street foods of China, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. By bringing a piece of the world to Bywater, Nick hopes to make the world just that much smaller. He cherishes creating experiences, and sees Booty’s Street Food as a place of fun and exploration. He’s the happiest prowling street stalls of the world!
Kevin Farrell fell in love with New Orleans while attending Loyola University. When Hurricane Katrina ate his home and all worldly possessions during his senior year, he relocated to Seattle and began working on what would eventually become Booty’s Street Food. A blogger and journalist by trade, Kevin spends many days at Booty’s drinking Stumptown at his computer and talking shop with the artists, neighbors and pals that pass through the doors daily. Kevin is the preeminent bathroom art installation curator of his time, overseeing and developing Booty’s Bywaterloo arts program.
Greg is a lifelong resident of New Orleans who has been in the restaurant industry for most of his life. After spending his childhood days after school hanging out in the kitchen at Antoine’s with his dad, he graduated to waiting tables, tending bar, and finally back around to the kitchens of several of the city’s top restaurants. His varied travels have led him to the pirate treasure that is Booty’s. He reads incessantly, curses quite often, and smiles once in a while.
Shana, or Queen of the Bar, is a drink slinger/ bar manager extraordinaire. She’s been in the industry for [incoherent mumble] years, a surprisingly long time since she still gets carded. She’s a direct descendant of Elvis, with the hips and lips to prove it. Her idols include Catwoman, Wonder Woman, and Carmen San Diego. Her favorite day of the week is Super Nerd Sunday. She enjoys collecting Old World wine, other world books, and has a closet just for costumes. She has three amazing children who love her immensely, and more hairstyles than Rihanna.
“An airy corner restaurant with a black unicorn presiding over the bar, Booty’s Street Food offers upgraded global street food…But the real attraction is in the bathrooms, where every month the owners call on two new artists to create site-specific installations.

“Booty’s Street Food encapsulates New Orleans’ authentic flair for hearty food and local art, inviting artists to transform the restrooms into installations for the neighbourhood’s monthly art walk.”
