We joined for a nice dinner. The food was good. I had the salmon. It was salty. The vegetables served with it were good. Their 'quiet room' was anything but.

BMB is off the beaten path, tucked away in a nice neighborhood. Once you find it, you'll go back again and again. The food is delish and service is excellent. Prices are reasonable and there is nice ambiance. Indoor and outdoor seating are available.

Have been here a couple of times & was lucky enough to get in on Father's Day for brunch! Brunch was really good w/a nice menu selection. Restaurant is pretty small & disorganized when busy, but if you have some patience, it's worth it. Beignets,...More
