About
In the olden times, ranchers adorned their cows with custom bells to identify them as they ate their way through the open range. The mellifluous ring of the cowbell reminds the rancher to bring those delicious meats to us, so that we can serve them to you in the Riverbend. Cowbell in New Orleans is where you can find food. Handmade. Simple. Delicious.BYOB 'til the city sets us free.

Split the adult grilles cheese, love brussels (great sauce), and the figgy toast is so unique and delicious (ask for extra rustic toast). Then sink your tastebuds into their O.G burger (add an egg and bacon b/c it's nutritional), and their seafood burger on fridays...More
