Baton Rouge Restaurants

Downtown Dining

If anything were to prove that downtown Baton Rouge is grooving right along in the progress and revitalization department, its abundance of outstanding dining establishments might well be it. "

People come here to soak up the excitement of the downtown experience and check out the street life. It's the best place to experience the real Baton Rouge."

Rhorer also said two new restaurants are expected to open soon. Schlitzz & Giggles, at the corner of Florida and Third Street, will make its debut in November serving handmade pizza and salads and will be open seven days a week for both lunch and dinner.

Set to open in six to eight months is Stroube's Chop House, an upscale steak house managed by the same folks who run the popular Capital City Grill. It'll be on the corner of Third Street and North Blvd., and will open for both lunch and dinner.

Well since you know it all, give me some close by examples. Nevermind, if you did know it all we wouldn't be having this discussion. Carry on. I apologize people, I forgot who I was talking to.

Lol, a whole half a page about a rhetorical comment.

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 Co

Yet another New Orleans restaurant opening in BR.

Acme Oyster House coming to Perkins Road

Acme Oyster House, the legendary New Orleans seafood restaurant, is scheduled to open its first Baton Rouge location next summer as part of the redeveloped Acadian Village Shopping Center. The restaurant has signed a deal to build a 6,000-square-foot restaurant in the center, between a gas station and Elio Marcello's Wine Warehouse, says Mukul Verma, a spokesman for the Baton Rouge Area Foundation. Commercial Properties Realty Trust, the foundation's for-profit arm, owns Acadian Village. Plans are for Acme to open in time for back-to-school to catch the LSU football crowd. This is the fifth location for Acme, which has restaurants in Metairie, Covington and Sandestin, Fla., along with its original French Quarter spot. Acme had been looking at opening a Baton Rouge restaurant for a while and had considered going into downtown. Commercial Properties plans to turn Acadian Village, once the home of the Perkins Road Wal-Mart, into a mixed use, pedestrian-friendly development with stores, restaurants and housing. The company is in talks with more regional restaurants, Verma says. --Timothy Boone

I was wondering when Acme would finally set up a location in Baton Rouge. After they expanded into Metairie and then onto the northshore in Covington and Mandeville, it was only a matter of time before they headed that way. Sorry to hear it won't be downtown, however, as a big SE Louisiana name like Acme could draw plenty of people to downtown BR. Where exactly is the Acadian Village Shopping Center?

I ate at Kona Grill for the first time last night and I am not sure if I will be going back. The service was horrible and it took us 30 minutes to get refills and over an hour to get our food. We spoke to the manager who came and apologized, his excuse was that the servers were socializing in the back, yet he didnt offer us the usual damage control manuver and offer us free dessert. So we left kind of indifferent towards the place. But I will have to say that the atmopshere was great, and it is probably the coolest looking resturant in BR. They have glass sliding doors (kind of like a garage door) that open and it make the whole resturant open to the outside courtyard, it was a really cool idea.

Interesting.

um, the food was okay. The menu was very limited. No one I was with was impressed by the sushi and my Pad Thai Noodle dish was pretty good, but nothing special. Everything to me kind of had that generic taste of Copelands Cheesecake Bistro, where everything no matter what you get is going to taste the exact same. But I would still recommend trying Kona Grill and see what you think. I am sure I will go back there, but I think its kind of like Tsunamis or Hooters, you dont go for the food, you go for the atmosphere, lol

This look so much better than a Lone Star. I'm sorry for all the Lone Star fans out there, but their food is blah. :sick:

"A popular Mexican restaurant in Lafayette has purchased the Lone Star Steakhouse & Saloon building on Acadian Thruway just south of Interstate 10. Coyote Blues paid $2.1 million for the Lone Star site, which has been vacant since it was damaged by a fire earlier this year. Braxton Moody IV, who owns Coyote Blues, says plans are to demolish the property and build a new location from the ground up. Moody, who opened the Outback Steakhouse across Acadian, says he would like to open Coyote Blues in time for LSU football season. "This is a good time to be moving into Baton Rouge," he says. "The major chains are pulling back, but we're blessed with the recovery and $118 a barrel oil." Coyote Blues, which will turn 5 years old this month, has won several Times of Acadiana magazine polls as Lafayette's best Mexican restaurant. A Baton Rouge location has been in the works for more than a year. "We think we've hit on a unique concept, fresh Mex with a Louisiana fusion and mesquite burning grills," Moody says."
