Baton Rouge-based Walk-On’s Bistreaux and Bar, a concept founded by two former LSU basketball players (both walk-ons, of course), is opening a 9,500-square-foot restaurant and bar on Kaliste Saloom Road next to Randol’s. The new location will be the eighth restaurant for Brandon Landry and Jack Warner, who met in 1997 on the hardwood of LSU’s Pete Maravich Assembly Center.
Landry (pictured at left) says the total Lafayette investment, from the land to construction and furnishings, will approach $3.6 million. The Kaliste Saloom real estate transaction was brokered by Ryan Pécot of Stirling Properties.
The concept for Walk-On’s was actually born on a basketball road trip. Read more about its entry into the Lafayette market in Turk File in the July issue of ABiz.
