Ever-growing restaurant group Creole Cuisine Restaurant Concepts, which runs numerous concepts from daiquiri shops to fine dining destinations Kingfish and Broussard’s, is adding two new spots to its empire, Todd Price reports this week. Here’s the details.
Former Creole-Italian eatery Barreca’s (3100 Metairie Road), which never reopened after Katrina but operated as an events space, will be developed into a family-friendly restaurant. Ian McNulty also reports that seafood, Italian and brunch is planned.
Warehouse Grille (859 Magazine), a Warehouse District restaurant and bar with a huge outdoor space, will be developed into a casual neighborhood spot.
These two new expansions come on the heels of one crazy summer for Creole Cuisine—run by brothers Zeid, Marv & Richey Ammari— which have recently purchased the shuttered Maurepas Foods in the Bywater, the Warehouse District’s Italian and wine compound of Tommy's Cuisine, Tommy's Wine Bar, and Tomas Bistro, and announced that sports bar Bayou Burger will open a new location in the recently closed Salu space on Magazine Street.
