The dining options in Intercity Shopping Centre are now a little spicier, with the addition of Beaux Daddy’s second location in the former bagel shop on Fort William Road. Owner Chris Davidson says he’s been cooking up plans for a second location for a while. “It’s been part of the expansion plan to showcase our restaurant on a micro scale with a second location, eventually spanning across Canada in similar size cities to Thunder Bay,” he says.
The restaurant offers patrons a scaled-down version of the ambiance and menu of Beaux Daddy’s. “We tried to bring the warmth and fun of our flagship restaurant into the space by creating a dark warm wood back bar area, welcoming New Orleans décor like French Quarter street lamp posts and, of course, Mardi Gras beads,” says Davidson.
With counter service and seating for approximately 30 guests (plus take-out), Beaux’s Place features signature Cajun dishes, such as jambalaya and gumbo, and other popular dishes like appetizers (gator bites!), burgers, and salads. The price point on food selections ranges from $8-16, leaving change for a beer (including local craft brews), wine, or spirits.
True to the theme of Beaux Daddy’s, Beaux’s Place welcomes patrons to “lassay les bon temps rouler!”
