A building on Coursey Boulevard that will continue to be home of Boil & Roux crawfish and oyster bar has been sold for $640,000.
Grand Wall Chinese Super Buffet Inc. of Gonzales bought the nearly 4,300-square-foot building at 11777 Coursey in a deal that was filed Thursday with the East Baton Rouge Clerk of Court’s Office.
The seller was Geaux Hoosiers LLC, a corporation that includes former LSU football coach Gerry DiNardo; Mike Polito, MAPP Construction president and CEO; Mike Hollingsworth of the Hollingsworth Richards Automotive Group; and Dr. Brent Bankston. The name of the corporation harkens back to DiNardo’s stint as the football coach at the University of Indiana.
According to Kent Walker of NAI/Latter & Blum – Donnie Jarreau, who represented the sellers, Great Wall has no plans to open a restaurant in the building. “They bought the building as an investment,” he said. “They’re going to continue operating the lease that Boil & Roux is under.” Boil & Roux still has about four years left on its lease.
Boil & Roux has been open for a little over a year. The building is best known as being home of the old Calendar’s restaurant.
