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.

Designer Allie Wood created this upstairs “she room” for homeowner Lauren Marouni, including a custom built-in with Emtek hardware, Stark carpeting, a custom coffee table and sofas, and a show-stealing pendant from Circa Lighting.

THE MAROUNI HOUSEHOLD is a lesson in well manicured restraint — followed by a double shot of playful color. Outfitted by Allie Wood Design Studio, the home in Southampton was built by former Houston Rockets player Brad Miller and purchased by Bellaire High School sweethearts Oren Marouni and Lauren Weingarten Marouni in March 2020.
