A new restaurant and a clothing store should open in Perkins Rowe within the next three months, but plans for one burger joint could be delayed. Jeff Wright, who serves as a spokesman for the urban village at Perkins Road and Bluebonnet Boulevard, says the opening of Johnny Rockets could be delayed until a dispute between the franchisee and the chain is resolved. Johnny Rockets, a 1950s-style hamburger restaurant, has signed a lease to move into Perkins Rowe.
The Grillroom Chophouse & Wine Bar, an upscale Chicago eatery, will open in its 7,000-square-foot space next to Barnes & Noble by March 15.
Langford Market, an American Apparel Concepts boutique featuring sophisticated chic fashion, is starting construction next to Frock Candy and should be open in 90 days.
Meanwhile, construction should start in the next 30 to 45 days on the Perkins Rowe location of Camellia Grill. This will be the first Baton Rouge location for the landmark New Orleans eatery.—Rebecca Breeden
