According to recent reporting, Creole Kitchen is moving to a new location after spending almost 20 years in its original location at 1052 Mt. Vernon Ave. Its new home will be at 795 E. Long St, with the goal of opening in the new space by March 2024.
The new location will be part of The Ogden, a new multi-use building on Long St, and build out of the eatery’s new home is set to start in November or December. Creole Kitchen CEO Antoinette Parks was quoted in recent reporting stating that the new location will be about the same size as the current restaurant, and the eatery will stay in the King-Lincoln Bronzeville neighborhood through the move, but part of the appeal of the new location is that it will be in an area that’s more accessible to many customers.
As detailed on their online menu, Creole Kitchen serves breakfast items like beignets and shrimp creole and grits, along with pancakes, French toast and other breakfast staples. The lunch and dinner options include po boy sandwiches served with fries, along with Cajun specialties like crawfish etouffee and jambalaya, entree salads, soups, wings and daily specials.
