At Nina Compton’s second restaurant, she and chef-business partner Levi Raines (former sous chef at Compere Lapin) adapted the rich Caribbean flavors of Compere to a menu that skews American South, and the result is a sampling of the finest of both. Hogs’ head boudin and fried gulf oysters over rice and oyster gravy bring all the comfort of New Orleans, while the spaghetti pomodoro, farro risotto, and rabbit curry widen the scope. Bywater American Bistro is a delightful neighborhood destination; satisfying, memorable, and a place to dine time and again.
