The premise behind this restaurant sounds pretty amazing. Hope it lives up to it… ~ clndstnThere’s another new restaurant bound for the Bywater, and this one promises a menu of street food from around the world and an approach that emphasizes social media and networking.The restaurant is called Booty’s, and it’s now taking shape in the corner address that had been Channel Zero Video. It’s right in the middle of a wave of new restaurant development in the area.Booty’s is a project from Nick Vivion and Kevin Farrell, partners who recently moved here from Seattle and now live above their future restaurant. They also run a gay-themed news and culture Web site called Unicorn Booty, which partially explains their restaurant’s name. Their global menu is also part of it.“It’s tied to the pirate history of New Orleans. Our food comes from all over the world, just like pirate booty,” says Vivion.
