A new local Cajun & Creole restaurant, called Roots, is coming soon to the former Café 329 located at 329 Dulles Drive in Lafayette.
Kris Allen, a Pamplona restaurant chef, is opening the new restaurant to “get back to his roots,” as a local newspaper puts it.
Roots will serve traditional southern Cajun dishes with recipes passed down from family like gumbo—because you have to—cracklins, blood boudin, a variety of soups including turtle, and of course, crawfish from his family’s Ville Platte-based crawfish ponds.
The former Café 329 space is already setup to operate as a full-service restaurant with a drive-thru, a bar, and tons of indoor & outdoor seating. There is also plenty of parking.
The tentative opening date for Roots is aimed for the first half of March.
