More Bear's bars 

  As noted in a recent review of Bear's at Gennaro's (3206 Metairie Road, Metairie, 504-833-9226), the name Bear's is already well known around the area. That's because a string of related but separate restaurants have long been in business on the Northshore, sharing the Bear's po-boy name and many recipes. But Bear's Po-boys at Gennaro's isn't the only extension of the Bear's brand to make it the leap across the Causeway.

  Matt Dekemel recently opened Bear's Po-boys at the Bottom Line (3309 Division St., Metairie, 504-455-6613) inside a newly renovated bar on the edge of Fat City. Dekemel was previously a part owner in the Bear's edition at Gennaro's, which opened in 2010. He left that partnership and opened his own version after consulting with the Watson family, which started the first Bear's on the Northshore.

  The menu at Bear's at the Bottom Line features a standard roster of po-boys, starting with the roast beef, and Dekemel plans to expand with more dishes as the operation gets going. The Bottom Line has been a bar for many years and it still functions primarily as one. That means customers must be at least 21 to enter, though in a bid for midday po-boy business, there's no smoking allowed during lunch hours.

  Bear's at the Bottom Line serves lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday.
