The drinks have been flowing for about a week now at Brisbi’s Lakefront Restaurant & Bar, and from its elevated, westerly-facing deck people have been toasting boaters as they return to port after day on Lake Pontchartrain.

Brisbi’s is one of two new restaurants along Lakeshore Drive. Finishing touches are underway at the second, Blue Crab Restaurant and Oyster Bar, which is just a short walk up the canal. Blue Crab manager Kent Burgess expects his restaurant to open within the next few weeks.
