New: Bar Redux opens in the Bywater 

  Bar Redux, a neighborhood bar serving up traditional comfort food and creative Caribbean fare, has opened in the former location of barbecue stalwart The Joint (801 Poland Ave., 504-592-7083).

  While many wondered about the fate of the unassuming building when The Joint relocated to larger digs last year, Bar Redux has made the space a unique standout with a colorful, Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test-style paint job and vintage neon "BAR" sign.

  The menu is small but growing, with a number of quirky twists on comfort food staples from chef Kevin Querant including a ribeye cheesesteak and a Cuban sandwich anchored by garlic-infused roasted pork. The Jamaican jerk cheesesteak nachos (off-menu for now, but always available) have become a popular dish for late-night bar patrons.

  The menu also offers up a fine number of vegetarian options, including stuffed portabello mushrooms and a surprisingly delicious avocado salad featuring well-spiced chickpeas, corn, onion, and avocado served as a kind of chunky guacamole inside half an avocado.

  Redux only has one signature cocktail thus far — a combination of Malibu rum, Midori (a melon liqueur), cucumber, and pineapple known as "The Pussycat" — but is looking to expand their roster quickly with other frothy, tiki-inspired drinks.
