  • Truck Farm Tavern, a new restaurant from Cowbell proprietors Brack and Krista May, is now open in St. Rose.

The team that raised the bar on burgers in the Riverbend is branching out, opening a restaurant in St. Rose.  Cowbell proprietors Brack and Krista May opened Truck Farm Tavern (11760 River Road, 504-699-0099) last week on River Road in the former St. Rose Tavern spot.

Cowbell opened in 2011 and drew a following for grass-fed-beef burgers and its bric-a-brac roadhouse feel. Guests at the new restaurant can expect similarly laid back ambience and a menu of comfort food standards including sandwiches, smoked meats and Southern-inspired casual fare. A rotating sandwich selection includes a grilled tuna muffuletta with lemon-basil aioli and olive salad, and an indulgent-sounding cochon de lait po-boy dressed with brie, pickles and hot peppers. 

Barbecue features prominently, including smoked mussels served with tasso and hominy, as well as standards such as smoked chicken, sausage, ribs and brisket.

Entrees have a distinctly Southern feel. There’s boudin-stuffed chicken served with duck fat potatoes, spicy escarole and a farm egg; a twist on shrimp and grits features rabbit sausage; and a grilled pork chop comes with country ham, sweet pea grits and red-eye gravy.

A full bar includes several beers on drafts, wine by the glass and bottle and a selection of signature cocktails. The Truck Farm Smoked Bloody features smoked bacon, pepperoncini, pepper Jack cheese and a celery salt rim.

Truck Farm Tavern is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.Tuesday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
