Louisiana Bistreaux, a Cajun restaurant, will open its doors next week in Decatur’s Suburban Plaza.
Owner Fred Delawalla said Louisiana Bistreaux will open for business on Thursday, August 25 at 11 a.m.
He said a grand opening party is in the works as well.
A manager for the Decatur location told Decaturish that the restaurant is hiring servers. That manager also said he was awaiting final inspections.
The interior appeared close to completion with chairs and tables set up both inside and outside on the covered patio.
The approximately 3,000-square-foot restaurant will open behind the LA Fitness and next to the barber shop Sports Clips.
Delawalla told Decaturish in November 2015 the restaurant will seat 120 to 130 people, including on the heated/air conditioned patio.
The Decatur restaurant will be the second location. The original Louisiana Bistreaux is located in East Point.
Delawalla said the menu will feature mainly seafood and will include the restaurant’s signature jambalaya.
Delawalla highlighted the “crawtator crusted grouper” as one of the Decatur menu items. It’s described as “grouper crusted with Zapp’s crawtator chips in a cajun crawfish cream sauce.”
