Piccadilly Restaurants, an icon of Southern-style comfort food, opens a new full-service restaurant at 27156 Crossing Circle in Denham Springs, Louisiana on December 11. Located within the Juban Crossing shopping center just east of Baton Rouge, the restaurant serves as a prototype for future Piccadilly locations.

The 7,000-square-foot restaurant offers a family-friendly experience that blends Piccadilly’s classic elements with modern design features, new menu items and added conveniences.

“The Juban Crossing prototype is a modern Piccadilly that still holds true to its roots,” says Piccadilly CEO Aslam Khan. “Guests can expect the same great hospitality experience, speed of service and freshly prepared food that Piccadilly is known for delivering. The updates we’ve incorporated in this new concept build upon that foundation.”

In addition to an open kitchen, the Juban Crossing location offers modern conveniences like USB plugins and a takeout area for guests on the go. The prototype’s design aesthetic incorporates coral and aqua colors, accent walls and high-top seating.

The menu features time-honored classics like carrot soufflé, fried chicken and Southern fried fish, along with new dishes, such as made-to-order entrée salads and fresh, seasonal salads.

“This is such a meaningful milestone in our company’s history,” says Khan. “It’s been 87 years since the first Piccadilly opened in Baton Rouge. Now we’re on the cusp of opening a modernized prototype in the same metro area where it all began.”
