Sid-Mar's to Reopen Tuesday

Nearly four and a half years after Hurricane Katrina wrecked their original Bucktown location, the family owners of Sid-Mar's Restaurant & Bar plan to reopen tomorrow, Jan. 19, at a new Metairie address (3322 N. Turnbull Dr., 831-9541).

The Burgess family opened Sid-Mar's in 1967 next to the old Bucktown fishing docks on a spot with an unimpeded view of the lake. The Army Corps of Engineers took over that property as part of its flood control plans following Katrina.

The new location is strikingly different, and well inland. It's a restaurant space that was most recently home to the Korean barbecue restaurant Gimchi. It's just off Veterans Memorial Boulevard.

While you won't find the lake views and breezes that characterized the Bucktown original, the new Sid-Mar's menu of po-boys, seafood platters and seasonal boiled seafood remains the same, right down to the Sid-Mar's special, a hot sausage po-boy with roast beef gravy and cheese.

Sid-Mar's will serve lunch and dinner, Tuesday through Sunday.
