Louisiana Bistreaux continues to expand its tasty seafood in Georgia with a new location set to open in 2022. At 237 Perimeter Center Parkway in Dunwoody, the forthcoming restaurant will be conveniently located near Perimeter Mall.
“Get ready for the flavors of Louisiana to hit the Perimeter area. We can’t wait,” the brand’s website reads.
While an exact opening date is still up in the air, Wendy Smith, a spokesperson for the restaurant said they are “shooting for Spring.”
Perimeter, North Atlanta’s premier shopping destination, is home to over 150 retailers and a spectacular streetscape that features a number of renowned and popular eateries. The Cheesecake Factory, Seasons 52, Maggiano’s Little Italy and Cinco Mexican Cantina are just a few of the restaurants that call Perimeter home.
The Louisiana-inspired Cajun and Creole restaurant features a diverse menu of fresh seafood, steaks, gumbo, Jambalaya, and Etouffee. Redfish Ponchartrain, Shrimp, Andouille and Grits, Cajun BBQ Shrimp, and Red Beans and Rice are some of the mouthwatering dishes offered. Specialty drinks include Cajun Margarita made with spicy Tanteo Habanero Tequila, Nola Daiquiri, and ATL Old Fashioned.
Louisiana Bistreaux Perimeter will be open 11:30 AM – 10:00 PM Sundays thru Thursdays and 11:30 AM – 10:30 PM on Fridays and Saturdays. These hours are similar to its sister locations of which there are three – 1375 Virginia Avenue, East Point; 1496 Church Street, Decatur; and 3312 Piedmont Road, Atlanta.
“It just seemed like the next best location with everything going on,” Smith said when asked why Perimeter was ideal to open a fourth spot. “It’s grown so much over the years and we felt there was a need for the cuisine we offer.”
The set up and main menu for Louisiana Bistreaux Perimeter will be just like Buckhead’s, but could include a special lunch menu. A patio is also being worked on for the location.
Founded by owner Fred Delawalla, the first Louisiana Bistreaux opened in 2015. Delawalla has credited the restaurant’s popularity to Cajun and Creole cuisine icon, Chef Paul Prudhomme, from whom he received training.
