Roux 61 Seafood & Grill, a Natchez, Mississippi casual dining restaurant, has signed a lease on the building currently occupied by Boutin’s and plans to open a location by May 1.
Officials with Roux 61 said they plan to bring the same menu from Natchez to Baton Rouge. The menu features dishes such as steaks seared on an 1,800-degree broiler, chargrilled oysters, fried catfish, seafood po-boys, boiled shrimp and hamburgers. Roux 61 has been open in Natchez for about four years.
Boutin’s filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in November. The Cajun restaurant reported liabilities between $500,001 to $1 million and assets between $100,001 to $500,000.
Officials with Boutin’s said the restaurant’s lease is up on Jan. 31 on the building at 8832 Bluebonnet Blvd. Boutin’s has been in the building since August 2001.
