On the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Bacchus is known for their delicious steaks and scenic views. Now the Nicaud brothers are bringing the sixth restaurant to the Square to open next Monday.

The new restaurant will be where Tre Amici once resided at 1107 Jackson Avenue East, to the left of Renasant Bank. The Nicaud brothers are excited for the grand opening next Monday.

Jourdan Nicaud, is a successful restaurant entrepreneur who opened three restaurants by the time he turned 24 last year. He said, “We’re all longtime Ole Miss fans, and we’re definitely excited to be here.”

His younger brother, Field Nicaud is a sophomore majoring in hospitality at the University of Mississippi. Field is more than ready to help Jourdan manage Bacchus on the Square. A true sophomore, Field will have to wait until he turns 21 in November, the same age Jourdan was when he opened his first restaurant. Still, in the days leading up the grand opening, Field helped his brother with the set up as well as getting the word out among his Ole Miss friends.

The menu offers everything from seafood, salads, pasta, and food with a creole flavor. A popular favorite among the locals is $10 pork chop Monday featuring the “Almost Famous Pork Chop.”

Jourdan and Field both confirmed the $10 pork chop Monday dish is the crowd’s favorite. Field said, “You can get a pork chop and three sides all day and all night for $10 on Mondays.”

The Nola Debris Fries is also a favorite. Bacchus also has great oysters on the half shell, and the Barbecue Royal Reds are fabulous when they’re in season. Anyone that loves New Orleans style Cajun food will love this menu.

For starter dishes, there are Salmon Nachos, Seared Tuna, Spinach Bienville, Sweet Chili Chicken and Tomato Gouda with Crabmeat. They serve surf and turf dishes such as Fried Rebel Red Shrimp fried in Cajun-blended cornmeal and served with homemade white Remoulade sauce.

There are sandwiches like the Creole Club featuring ham and smoked gouda with applewood smoked bacon and chipotle garlic mayo. A sandwich stands out: Famous Shrimp PoBoy made of seared tuna, fried shrimp, lettuce, pickled cucumbers topped with soy reduction, spicy mayo and sriracha all for $19.95.

The hours will be from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday to Monday and Thursday, then the restaurant will be closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Friday and Saturday it will be open until 11 p.m.

The name Bacchus come from the family’s roots in New Orleans. The Nicaud brothers’ grandmother and father owned restaurants in the New Orleans as well as their uncle owning Lil’ Rays’ in Long Beach. Jourdan enjoyed tremendous success along the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and soon next week the Square will see what the Mississippi Gulf Coast residents have been raving about.
