Owner and culinary mastermind of French Quarter Bistro, Mark Van Horn’s prerequisites for a good meal are simple: authenticity, home cooking, and a liberal dash of soul. This dedication to comfort cooking has earned the French Quarter Bistro a host of dedicated regulars as well as the Philly Hot List's award for Best Soul Food in 2009, 2010, and 2011. In the bustling kitchen, chefs whip up creole and Cajun eats using unique ingredients such as house roasted peppers, alligator sausage, and fried pickles. Along with their flavorful dishes, French Quarter Bistro also serves up a variety of entertainment throughout the week, including open mic nights with local singers and poets tired of the wrestling portion of poetry slams.
We are a casual dining restaurant serving an upscale twist on comfort food. We range from pizza and lasagna to homemade mushroom ravioli in a shitake cream sauce, to pan-seared diver scallops in a brandy cream sauce: and everything in-between. For Lunch we have all the same, plus an expanded burger and steak menu.
