I guess Dunkin' Donuts said they were going to pick up where Starbucks fell off. :lol: Maybe they'll put one downtown.

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.

Oh, I don't know. I haven't seen any signs or articles so all we can do is guess for now.

Another Broken Egg announces opening date

Another crack at it: Another Broken Egg Café will open the doors of its new location at 2531 Citiplace Court on Dec. 12, marking a return to the Baton Rouge market after a hiatus more than a year long. The space is next to Jason’s Deli and was formerly occupied by Harold’s. Another Broken Egg had two Baton Rouge restaurants about three years ago. However, it closed its O'Neal Lane location because of slow weekday sales, and its Old Hammond restaurant was rebranded, then forced to close after the franchisee was sued for violating a non-compete clause and allegedly using trade secrets. The new restaurant will be owned and operated by local development group, Double R Restaurant Group, which has no affiliation to the previous owner and currently has plans to expand Another Broken Egg Café to North Carolina with five locations. The restaurant will serve breakfast, brunch and lunch from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily.

Chipotle entering La. market with B.R. restaurant near LSU

The battle for burrito supremacy in Baton Rouge will heat up next summer when Chipotle Mexican Grill opens its first Louisiana restaurant in the former Blockbuster site near LSU's North Gates at 101 W. State St. Chipotle spokesman Chris Arnold says the restaurant will open in mid-2012, but no exact date has been set. The burrito chain—similar in concept to Izzo's Illegal Burrito—has grown to more than 1,100 restaurants across the U.S., U.K and Canada since its foundation in Colorado in 1993. Arnold is mum at the moment on plans for other Chipotle restaurants in Baton Rouge or Louisiana. "We don't talk about plans beyond sites that are under lease and where construction is scheduled, and nothing else meets [those] criteria at this point," he says. "But it's also pretty unusual for us to do just one restaurant anywhere." Once the restaurant opens, there will be just four states—Mississippi, Montana, and North and South Dakota—in which Chipotle is not operating. The 6,500 square feet of space formerly occupied by Blockbuster is being divided in two, with Five Guys Burgers and Fries set to open alongside the Chipotle site, says Austin Earhart of Beau Box Commerical Real Estate, the agent on both deals. "They're working to get in there as soon as humanly possible, but it will probably spring time," Earhart says of the Five Guys restaurant. A patio will be constructed on the Highland Road side of the building, to be shared by both restaurants, Earhart says.

Chipotle is going to struggle with Izzo's anywhere near it.

Ghengis is pretty good. That should do well in Baton Rouge.

The former Broken Egg/ LaLou on Old Hammond near the light at Corporate/ Old Hammond and Jefferson Hwy was just recently foreclosed on. It is now owned by the bank. I wonder who will go there next... Great location. Although, the building and parking lot could use a face-lift.

The Santa Fe Cattle Co in Prairieville opened last week. I have not been to this location but the location in Hammond is pretty decent. It's worth checking out.

Reginelli's plans second B.R. location in Mid City

New Orleans pizzeria Reginelli's is renovating the former Compact Disc Store location at 684 Jefferson Highway in Mid City and plans on opening the restaurant—its second in Baton Rouge—in March, says owner Darryl Reginelli. "We plan on continuing to expand in Baton Rouge," Reginelli says. "I don't have any particular locations in mind at the moment, but I would like to have a third Baton Rouge restaurant by the end of 2012." Reginelli and his business partners launched the pizzeria in New Orleans about 15 years ago. The Jefferson Highway location will be the ninth—with seven in New Orleans and two in Baton Rouge. Reginelli says Baton Rouge and Houston will be the focus of continued expansion, and he hopes to add as many as three restaurants a year for the foreseeable future.

The Compact Disc Store closed early this year after 26 years in business. Reginelli says he was attracted to the 2,700-square-foot location due to the strength of the surrounding neighborhood. "We planned on expanding in Baton Rouge shortly after we entered the market about five years ago, but we just never really found the right opportunity or space. The biggest thing that drew me to this location is that it's in a really well-established neighborhood, and our aim is to become a part of the community." Serving pizza, salads, sandwiches and calzones, Reginelli's other Baton Rouge location is near LSU at 124 W. Chimes St.

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.
