I'm a regular there, and I've yet to have a bad or mediocre meal. Plus, the craft cocktails are awesome. Only negative is that the wine list is a little light on selections.


I've only heard good things, I will definitely be trying it. I certainly wouldn't expect a major wine following in the Bywater.

I too am curious with your thoughts on Sui Generis, I did some business with owner/chef. He was always trying to get me to try but I never made it. The menu sounds ultra eclectic.

Thanks for response.

See my earlier post re Sui. Its good - only drawback is that its located literally across the street from a great restaurant that is similar in food style and price. Definietly worth a try, especially if there's a long wait at Maurepas.
Disagree about wine in the Bywater - Bacchanal makes a killing with its wine sales, and a very nice wine shop just opened on St. Claude by the rr tracks - Fauborg Wines.

Been to the place once because it was open late. Didn't feel uncomfortable at all on a Saturday night in Bywater. Cool people out and about, and that whole area is improving.

Oh, and I really enjoyed the meal.

I like it, but the food is not as good as Maurepas. Don't take that as a sign that Sui's food is bad, its just that Maurepas is a damn superb restaurant, and since the prices are roughly the same, I usually go to Maurpas. But, you'll get a good meal at Sui (they make wonderful ravioli, sometimes with lobster). In terms of preferences, I rank them as follows: 1. Maurepas; 2. Booty's; 3. Sui Generis. Also, Bacchanal, is very close by (on the end of Poland by the river) and they just opened an upstairs, indoor dining area. They are producing some really good food these days, also at inexpensive price points. Plus, Bacchanal's wine selection and pricing is damn hard to beat.



Very cool, thanks for the info. Everyone has good things to say about Bacchanal but I can just never amp myself up to want to drive over there and check it out. Maybe when the weather turns not shitty here in a couple months.

This intrigues me. I want to like Brussels sprouts but just can't. I'm interested to try this place.


I used to hate Brussels sprouts, and then went years not even trying them. Last week I tried them at Maurepas and loved them. The sweet potatoes were tiny, and awesome too. I hear they change the menu often based on what's fresh on the local market; I will definitely go back.

Maurepas' menu changes weekly. Some items will last for awhile though; i.e., goat tacos, shrimp pot, cheese board. They strive on using fresh local foods, so the menu changes to reflect what's available. Sui and Booty's do the same thing.

That place doesn't even have ketchup.
