Cavett House closing; Cajun eatery coming
Cavett House Grill & Pub, 359 Colorado Ave., is closing its doors Saturday after two years of serving up burgers, sandwiches, salads and pasta.
The spot won’t be vacant for long. Sue Perkins, a chef from Louisiana, plans to open a “fine-dining, Cajun seafood restaurant” at the location. She said the restaurant will be called La Louisiane, and it will open Feb. 23, just in time for Fat Tuesday.
Perkins said she will ship in fresh seafood from Louisiana two times a week, and she plans to serve Southern favorites such as gumbo. The restaurant will serve lunch and dinner daily with doors opening at 11 a.m.
The Cavett House opened its doors in April 2007. Owner Marc Rice is hosting farewell parties today and Saturday with $3 drinks and live music.
Musicians Bobby Walker and Paul Schneider are performing tonight, and a disc jockey will perform Saturday.
Rice said the best part of doing business in Grand Junction was “the people and the downtown atmosphere.”
