Long Beach's Louisiana Charlie's To Open Location Within San Diego's Seaport Village

August 20, 2020

Heading to town from nearby Long Beach, Louisiana Charlie’s will bring New Orleans soul food & Southern barbecue to San Diego next spring, joining a whole host of new culinary offerings opening in downtown's Seaport Village.

Louisiana Charlie's was founded in 2013 by Shanda and Eric Laurent in Long Beach's Shoreline Village. The eatery serves Cajun & Creole favorites like seafood boils, po'boy sandwiches, etouffee and dirty red beans and rice, as well as a variety of smoked Southern-style barbecue. A second location will open in San Diego as early as next spring, taking over the 700 square-foot space that last housed Frost Me Gourmet. The San Diego location will also add more healthy and vegan dishes.

San Diego's Seaport Village is currently in the process of updating its food options and has signed a bunch of local eateries to open locations in the next year, including Mr. Moto Pizza House, Mike Hess Brewing, City Tacos, Spill The Beans Coffee, and a new two-story, 8,000 square-foot bar & restaurant from local hospitality group Grain & Grit Collective (Little Italy Food Hall) and Sam "The Cooking Guy" Zien taking over the former Buster's Beach House. Two restaurant spaces at Seaport Village remain available.

Louisiana Charlie's San Diego will open at 859 West Harbor Drive inside Seaport Village. For more information, visit louisianacharlies.com.
