Thank you for making the PHB great!

We are happy that you noticed and recognized the Poor House Bistro as one of the BEST places for local dining and live music!

Your appreciation inspires us to continue doing what we're doing and bringing you that best "Authentic" New Orleans joint and musical talent this side of "The Big Easy!"
