Booty’s Named One of the 50 Coolest Small Businesses in America by Business Insider

10:28 AM  December 16, 2013

Our little Bywater restaurant keeps racking up national press. From Business Insider’s 50 Coolest Small Businesses in America:

What it is: An international street food restaurant with a hidden art gallery.

What makes it cool: Co-owners Nick Vivion and Kevin Farrell bring the concept of eating your way around the world to life. Inspired by their travels around the world, Vivion and Farrell designed a menu that features classic street cart dishes like frites from Belgium, banh mi from Vietnam, and empanadas from Venezuela.

And if that weren’t enough, Booty’s is also home to a secret art gallery (spoiler alert: it’s in the bathroom!).


What’s cooler than being cool?

That Time The New York Times Forgot to Name Us While Namedropping Us

10:58 AM  December 5, 2013

Our favorite part of Tuesday’s NYT piece on New Orleans’ booming restaurant scene:


An Israeli-owned steakhouse that just opened in the French Quarter sets prices according to how long the beef has been aged. A place in the gentrifying Bywater neighborhood tells customers the original longitude and latitude of the street food on the menu. At another, a straight-faced waitress described a special involving “roast broccoli in a purée of broccoli.” 


Woohoo! Our second time rocking The New York Times this year. But why beat around the bush? We’re Booty’s, baby! Say my name!



Thanks for the love, NYT. Mostly. :D

Our house daiqs top the Frozen Drinks section of the compendium, scoring rave reviews for our all natural, preservative-free recipes.

The daiquiris here aren’t saccharine like those found at many daiquiri shops. The Bywater Bomber daiquiri features Old New Orleans rum, rose water, house-made bitters and fresh pineapple, orange and lime juice. The Hula Hoop is a blend of Old New Orleans rum, guava and vanilla. 800 Louisa St., (504) 266-2887;, @bootys

Bywater Bombers and Hula Hoops are daily staples here at Booty’s and make a perfect companion to any lunch, brunch or dinner. 

Come and get ‘em.

New Orleans Magazine’s Best New Restaurants of the Year issue has dropped, and Booty’s Street Food is crazy-go-nuts proud to have made the cut. 

While it’s always nice to see your name in lights, we mostly just keep our heads down here at Booty’s and focus on delivering the best experience possible. Every now and then though, our ears perk way, way up and we get all blushy and bashful.
