debris sandwich - why are these not available elsewhere? maybe they are. the bits of roast beef hanging out on the cutting board gathered in a sandwich at 11:30pm, how do they stay open until 4? Good casual place to take a break from fantastic street music.

Thank lidarnell
Harold D, General Manager at 13 Monaghan, responded to this review

Thanks for the positive feedback. We're glad you were able to enjoy the Debris sandwich. Even more so, we appreciate the notice of staying open late. We are one of the few places with food that stays open till 4am. We strive to obtain great service at 3pm or 3am. Once again, thank you for the kind words More

Wife and I headed out to Frenchmen St and stopped in for Tachos! They were delicious ! The atmosphere was laid back which was a nice break from the constant noise along Frenchmen. Grabbed a Rebirth Pale Ale from NOLA Brewing and enjoyed myself.

Get away from Bourbon Street and head to 13 Monaghan for tasty vegan options! I recommend the bahn mi and bbq tofu sandwiches.

Right in the middle of all the action on Frenchman! There was no band here but that was the draw. So many places were so loud, no conversation was possible and the food offerings were not great. This place is open and airy and you can hear the music coming from all the other joints and can talk to your... More

First off, I will start by saying that the chicken salad sandwich was delicious. I would absolutely come back to eat the food. My issues were that the music was SO LOUD. It was so loud that we my party could not hear each other speak. We actually had to change our order from eat in to take out because... More

This is a bar with great food. They're cheap and vegetarian friendly. I can't say enough good things about them. Friendly staff, good food, and reasonably priced. This place is great.

2 Am in the morning and all the other places to grab a bite were closed so we ventured here. Its a small bar with eye-catching memorabilia and a few tables to eat at towards the back. The menu was strange which isn't bad it just had some combinations I'm not used to seeing. Tater tots being their main food... More

This bar/restaurant has a mexican flavor to its menu but also pizza;sandwiches;and vegan food. The food is adequate as are the drinks. The servers very good. It is a local hang out but friendly. If in the area I would go back. It isn't fancy but homey.

Great late night food. The Tachos are delicious. Great options. They only place on all of Frenchmen St. My husband had the red beans and rice which he said were awesome. Will definitely be back to try more. The service was pretty decent, nothing above and beyond. Side note- They are sell cigarettes, only place on Frenchmen that does.

This is kind of a dive bar in the middle of Frenchmen Street. We stumbled into it and it was one of the only bars without live music. However, they had a premade frozen Irish coffee. We tried it and I swear, heaven opened and angels sang when I drank this! I hate to admit how many times we came... More

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
