New Orleans native and former executive pastry chef at Passion Food Hospitality David Guas is finally set to open his much anticipated ode to the South, Bayou Bakery, next month. After a false start earlier this year that would have put the shop in the current Northside Social location on Wilson Blvd., it will now open in Courthouse right around the corner from the Metro.

Bayou Bakery will offer jambalaya, muffalettas, beignets, chicory-coffee pralines, pimento cheese and all those other treats us Northerners only wish we could get our hands on. They will also serve cult favorite Counter Culture coffee in the 70-seat counter service restaurant.

Guas hopes to have the restaurant open by late October.

  1. Yankee is all about the mindset, ghj. Damned Yankee is all about geography and timing.

    I look forward to this place. It’s hard to find beignets around here.

  2. I agree. I think if you live between Philadelphia and Richmond, Northerner vs. Southerner depends more on a state of mind than a geographical location.
