is this place up and running? It's Jimbo Morris' new restaurant in what I believe is in the same location as his previous restaurant (Jimbo's) was. If so, how is it?

Definitely up and running and getting good reviews. Not in old location but around the corner.

No. New restaurant - NOLA Bistro - is serving food with a New Orleans twist.

Are the owners from New Orleans, or are they local SXM residents? We will have to try them for sure.

As stated at the beginning of this thread, the owner is Jimbo Morris, owner of the former Jimbo's.

My understanding is Jimbo Morris is the Manager and other backers own the restaurant.

I've read Jimbo Morris' name numerous times on this forum, but I'm not familiar with him. Just wondering if he was from New Orleans, I guess not. Sorry

Jimbo Morris never lived in New Orleans, he is originally from St. Louis.

You are quite welcome. Also it was reported earlier that Jimbo is not the owner but just the manager, this is incorrect. Jimbo Morris discussed that this is his endeavor, without backers, in an interview he gave in December 2022. If you would like to see the interview, I have posted a link below.

Thank you for the links about Jimbo. I thought he was owner but didn't have any proof. Hadn't seen the "history" before so that's good to know.

Thanks for the link bdeeley. Would it be possible for someone to post a copy of their menu? I would like to see the offerings.

Thanks for the clarification. It appears speculation and hearsay are once again not accurate.

JD, you are totally correct. For some, it seems the quantity of their posts is far more important than the value, content or accuracy of their posts.

I prefer to deal in facts versus speculation and hearsay, and it seems there is a lot of that when it comes to businesses on the island.

I agree 100%, the true value is in the accuracy and content of a post. Opinions and reviews are very subjective and very often of little value, at least to me.

How are you doing? Are you over the withdraw from your trip? I hope you are doing well and that everyone there is happy and healthy.

I don't mind opinions and reviews; some I agree with and some I don't. I find a lot of inconsistency with many restaurant reviews on TripAdvisor so I pay little attention to those, especially here in the US.

Doing ok, starting to poke around for air for 2024, which will be higher than this year. Celebrating my wife's birthday with some friends (who travel to SXM with me) this weekend and taking it easy. I hope all is well with you.

I don't mind most opinions and reviews either, but I am going to do my own due diligence and let my own personal experiences dictate my decisions. Often enough, there is just too much twaddle on here, and often from a handful of the same people.

bdeeley--It doesn't matter where you are on the internet, there is lots of 'twaddle'.

Carol, I agree with you 100%, on that statement, and as with here, i look at the source and ignore much of the twaddle.
