Lone Star to replace Big Daddy's on King West

Big Daddy's Bourbon Street Bistro & Oyster Bar has served its final plate of crawfish and kissed King West goodbye. The restaurant shut down on July 19th, after years of serving Louisiana inspired eats to seafood-loving locals and hungry tourists. Many regulars are less than impressed and have taken to the Big Daddy's Facebook page to express their sadness over the closing.

However, if you favour carnitas over cajun fried alligator, you're in luck. Lone Star Texas Grill, which already has one Financial District location at Simcoe and Front, will be opening in its place. They've begun renovations and expect to open early September.
