Mystery No. 1: Is a Thai restaurant opening in Bonsack?
Well, that certainly appears to be the case, but we don’t know when it will open. I drove by the Thai Oudone Valley Grill location at 5983 Cloverdale Road, where a “Coming Soon” sign has been hanging for a couple of months. The location is attached to a gas station and convenience store.
Nobody was there when I stopped by one day last week, but when I peeked in the windows, I could see that someone has been remodeling the space. It looks like there’s still a good bit of work to be done.
I’m still working on tracking down the owners of this business for some details. If you know the folks who are opening this place, please let me know.
Mystery No. 2: What’s happening at Bayou Lucy’s on Brandon Avenue near Towers Mall?
We’ve received a number of emails and calls about this place, including a question from a reader who still holds an unexpired Daily Deal to the restaurant. Apparently, the restaurant has been closed for the last week or two, and for a while there was no sign on the door indicating when it would reopen.
Apparently, a sign has now appeared that says the restaurant would reopen July 17. Someone in our advertising department had heard it would reopen July 19 after some renovations. We sent a message to the restaurant on its Facebook page and received a response from an unknown employee who said the owner is currently in New Orleans.
I wish I knew more, but hopefully the restaurant will reopen this week and folks with Daily Deals will be able to use them before they expire later this month. If I learn more, I’ll share more
