    My wife, Frances, and I and two friends ate brunch at Bistro 55 today. Bistro 55, a cajun/creole restaurant, opened in May 2023 and is located on the corner of Robert and 1st Streets in Olde Town, Slidell, LA, formerly the Wine Garden building.
    The owners are Mike and Charleen York and partner Lawrence Bernard. I asked Mrs. York what the 55-degree symbol meant behind the Bistro name. She said 55-degrees is the temperature at which red wine is kept. Very interesting.
    The restaurant has more than the main dining room in the front. As you can see by the photos, there is a small hallway on the side of the bar that leads out to an intermediate indoor/outdoor seating area. If you keep going you enter an open air dining area known as the Event Room. This area will have karaoke entertainment starting Wednesday, October 25.
    The food is delicious and our waitress, Dominique, answered our questions about the selections before we ordered. She was very attentive, friendly and efficient.
    For a very enjoyable eating experience go to Bistro 55 restaurant at 300 Robert Street, Slidell, LA 70458. There was plenty of on-street parking at the time we went.

    The food was great and so was the service. The owner/manager was out making sure everyone was being taken care of. The redfish was super delicious and the avocado toast was perfectly done

    **NEW Restaurant Alert**

    What a nice surprise. It's definitely a hidden gem. My husband and I stumbled upon this place on our first date day in forever. We took in a movie and then headed to Olde Town to see if there was anything we wanted. While driving through, we saw the sign for this place. I immediately googled it, looked at the pictures, the menu, and said, "Let's try it." So glad we did.


    Greeting and Ambiance
    These are the only reasons I didn't give it 5 stars. We weren't greeted upon entering and had to ask if we just seat ourselves to the bar tender, and she said yes. We chose a high top table. There were 3 wooden high tops and about 5 or - seater tables and a bar with seating. I could not quite put my finger on the anesthetic they were going for, but it was clean and not a deal breaker for us.

    They have a full bar and have a cool selection of Mules (Tennesee, Mexican, Irish..etc). They were delicious and come in these mule cups that are a pretty good size.

    Here is where the drooling begins 😋! For an appetizer, we got their Bananas Foster Beignets...the syrup was so good I wanted to lick the plate. The Beignets were a great density and cooked to perfection. I ordered the Redfish and Grits... I did try and get it blackened, but it came out fried. I'm secretly glad it came out wrong. It also came with shrimp, which I didn't realize, so it was a pleasant surprise. The crispy crust was flavorful and added great contrast to the gouda corn grits. Everything was so balanced and delicious!!! My husband got the shrimp and grits... he inhaled it. Lastly, we added the loaded home fries. Potatoes were cooked perfectly, as was the bacon. Crispy with the cheddar cheese melted on top and a chive garnish. We definitely couldn't eat all of the food we ordered, but it was all amazing!

    Excellent. We were helped by several people once seated, the bar tender was super nice, and spent some time talking with us as we were finishing up.

    At the end of the meal, one of the partners checked on our table, and we learned that they had just opened a few weeks earlier, and then he took me on a tour of the place. They have a very cute back patio. Large fans and a dedicated bar. They also have a private event space. Insane how big this place actually was.

    Highly recommended!!!

    Our first experience at Bistro 55 was wonderful and we were planning our next trip before we left. The owners and servers were all extremely friendly and inviting, and the chef even came out to make sure we enjoyed our meal. The patio was very charming. We really enjoyed the beautiful decor and cool hangout area. The debris fries were delicious and the fried green tomatoes and crab meat were divine. Also, the enclosed patio made it very convenient for families with little kids like mine. We can’t wait to come back and try the rest of the menu!
