All-Day Louisiana Café Lagniappe Now Open in Former Revival Market Space

The Big Muffuletta

HUNGRY HOUSTONIANS SEEKING great Cajun fare now have one more option. Lagniappe Kitchen & Bar has bowed in the former Revival Market space, and a grand-opening celebration will take place on Friday, Aug. 19.


Owner Layne Cruz — who was previously the general manager of Revival — grew up in New Orleans, and together with chef Steven Lamborn, she’s bringing some of her breakfast, lunch and bar-bites favorites to H-Town. Monday, for example, means red beans and rice, while muffuletta sandwiches served on a toasted Gambino’s semolina roll are available all day, every day. Expect cheddar-bacon biscuits (with “boil spice”) for breakfast, gumbo for lunch, and happy-hour specials like pimento-cheese-stuffed hush puppies until 7pm.

There’s also a robust beverage program, headed up by Cruz herself, with New Orleans-style coffee and cocktails like sangria, all served in festive purple-and-gold cups. The Mardi Gras color scheme carries into the décor as well; a sophisticated play on the palette can be seen in the living-room-style main dining area and on the patio overlooking the bustling corner of Heights Blvd. and 6th.

Acquiring fame for their alkaline springs in the 17th century, the Romans were among the first to recognize the therapeutic benefits of the springs. They established a French spa known as “Vichy,” which still exists today and continues to attract spa-goers from around the world to experience the transformative effects of hydrotherapy.
