Treasure Bay Casino Opens New Restaurant And Lounge

Treasure Bay, Biloxi's pirate-themed casino, has a hidden treasure on its ninth floor. The CQ Restaurant and blu Lounge.

"We wanted to keep the old feeling of the Captain's Quarters, and also put the modern twist on it with the lounge," said Brandon Dethloff, Manager of blu and CQ.

CQ and blu opened just over two weeks ago and while the restaurant's namesake is pretty much the same, the restaurant and lounge reflects the casino's more aesthetic, post-Katrina look.

"Business is picking up. It was a quiet opening, but the word is getting out there. And we're definitely filling up," Dethloff said. 

Both the restaurant and lounge boast a view of the shoreline, and chefs for the restaurant say the menu offers up a little something to suit everyone's palate.

"I think the menu is very international, but has a lot of Bistro favorites. We did bring back some favorites from the old Captain's Quarters," said Matthew Lewis, Chef DeCuisine of CQ Restuarant. 

Blu, a tapas lounge, features small appetizer dishes and a wide array of wine and drinks.

"We have anything from a blueberry mojito to several different kinds of martinis, from pear to promegranate, basically, the hip new drinks that are out there," Lewis said.

This is part of yet another phase of Treasure Bay's ongoing expansion plans to build back better and stronger than ever on the North side of Highway 90.
