They're renovating the old Burger King into something with a neutral color scheme. The things that come to mind is Cane's, Chick-fil-A, Backyard Burger, a lot of coffee shops, and new McDonalds. Maybe it'll be one of the new Dunkin Donuts.


I drove by and it turns out it will be a Backyard Burger

Saw that too...nice to see! Hope Back Yard Burger will be a sucess there. Watching the way Burger King slowly decline til it closed was a bit disturbing to watch...some extra-cirricular activity could have led to it's demise.

Says something about the area when a chain like BK closes. Most BK's are ghetto to begin with.

I heard that was the worst BKs in the area and that is saying a lot, altough I don't think the area is "bad".

That would be a better location for a coffee shop.

DeAngelo expands restaurant offerings in Capital Region

Restaurateur Louis DeAngelo has opened his seventh Louis DeAngelo's Casual Italian Dining restaurant in the Baton Rouge area, in addition to a new restaurant concept and wine bar in the II City Plaza office building downtown. His latest namesake restaurant is located in Central, at 9952 Sullivan Road. DeAngelo describes his new restaurant concept—Zolia—as "a little bit more of an upscale Italian bistro" with a "completely different" menu than what customers are used to seeing at his namesake pizzerias. Zolia is about 2,400 square feet in size, with access to the portico between City Plaza and II City Plaza. It's serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, with hours from 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday. DeAngelo partnered with II City Plaza developer Mike Wampold on the restaurant, and says he's had the concept on the drawing board for about five years. "I really wanted to do something creative and different, at a restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner," DeAngelo says. "II City Plaza made the most sense for the location, because the concept really appeals to more of a business crowd, as opposed to the families we serve at our traditional restaurants." DeAngelo opened the Central restaurant the week before Christmas, and Zolia the week between Christmas and Jan. 1. Check out the Zolia website here for more information and a full menu.

Boutin's opens second B.R. restaurant near airport


Boutin's Restaurant has expanded its reach to north Baton Rouge with the opening of a second location near the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport at the Howell Place Business Park. Located at 7808 Howell Place Blvd., the new Boutin's features the same lunch and dinner selections as its Bluebonnet Boulevard restaurant, including boiled crawfish, shrimp specials, daily hot plate lunches, Poche's Market products and other specialty items. Hours for the new restaurant will be 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. "This new location is conveniently located for residents in Zachary, Central and Baker to stop by on their way to or from work in Baton Rouge, or as a relaxing, affordable lunch option for those who work closer to home in the north Baton Rouge area," says Lynn Boutin, owner and manager. The new restaurant seats more than 150 and has an outdoor patio as well as an in-store market stocking Poche's specialty meats.

The Rum House, a New Orleans restaurant that uses Caribbean flavors in Latin American dishes, will open in front of Perkins Palms on one of the front parcels along Perkins Road. Jarreau says construction of the restaurant should start in June.

I love that place. Their location on Magazine Street in New Orleans is perfect. I wish they would have picked an area near the Perkins Overpass or downtown though.

I hope they didn't bet the house on it. I just don't see Boutin's doing well in that location.

Maybe if the airport was WAY larger....but it isn't.

Anything on Perkins between Park and College or even Government between Jefferson and Park would have been a better fit for the particular character of that restaurant.

Radio bar seemed to be doing well when I went a while back. More hipsters than I would have wanted, but maybe that crowd has changed. That area could really support more restaurants and bars if they ever had some quality space available.
