This summer, the Central District News was quite upset about the state of the CD economy as King Creole Louisiana Gumbo & BBQ was shutting down on East Cherry. But remember: When it comes to the restaurant business, things are always opening and closing. And opening again. CDN is now happy to report a return, of sorts, of the King as Louisiana Grill & Deli opened recently on 23rd Ave next to the post office and the 99-cent store.
In grand community news gatherer fashion, we learned this breaking culinary news from a CDN review and more details when owner Jifar Wakjira bought an ad to announce the Grill’s December grand opening and gave us a few details on the new shop:
Our restaurant is located at 1106 23rd Avenue and is designed as a take-out only joint. The head chef used to run a restaurant in the madrona area, King Creole’s Louisiana Gumbo & BBQ (29th and Cherry). He started working in this new restaurant under new management last month…
The Grill is open Monday through Saturday from 7 AM to 9 PM and Sundays, 9 AM to 8 PM so, yes, that means breakfast is on the menu. It’s a takeout joint so we’re talking breakfast po’ boy sandwiches here. The hot link variety, for example, will set you back $5.95. The rest of the menu includes everything from po’ boy (lunch and dinner!) sandwiches, gumbo, chicken and slices of pie. The menu also says they offer shakes to which CDN says, excellent call.
The grand opening party weekend is planned for December 3rd and 4th.
Louisiana Grill & Deli is located at 1106 23rd Avenue.
