Bayou Lucy’s in Roanoke appears to have closed, but many details are unclear.
The owner, Yolanda Jimenez, said Friday she was “going through a lot.”
Asked whether the restaurant had closed, she said: “I don’t want to say anything more,” and hung up.
The New Orleans-style eatery opened in October on Brandon Avenue across from Towers Shopping Center. It has closed several times since then while Jimenez traveled to source new food vendors, and most recently in July when the building was renovated.
The restaurant’s doors were locked Friday. The only sign in the window was a notice that Jimenez had applied for an ABC license in June.
On Monday, a call to the owner’s cellphone reached a recording saying that the number “has been changed, disconnected or is no longer in service.” A call to the restaurant reached an answering machine.
A sign posted near the road says the property is available. Brian Broughman of Broughman Commercial Services said the property that Bayou Lucy’s is leasing is for sale. The building went on the market about a week ago, he said. He did not have information about the status of the restaurant.
