New Restaurant to Open in Old Elle J’s Location

Elle J’s located on Harrison Avenue in Lakeview closed this summer and after closing was picked up by the owners of Velvet Cactus and Wrong Iron. Now that they have leased the space, they are working on the plans for a new restaurant.

According to Rusty White, one of the project partners, the new restaurant will be called Outpost 45 which will be a casual, family-friendly restaurant. The menu is set to mix local flavors with American comfort food along with a bar. The restaurant is slated to open in March 2022 and gets its name from the bus line that serves Lakeview.

The popular spot has been other restaurants in the past including Elle-J’s and Mondo. Mondo was an eclectic neighborhood go-to for 10 years and was owned by Rosedale’s Chef Susan Spicer. Spicer is also the owner of Bayona and another restaurant in the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.

“We all live here in Lakeview, and we want something that’s going to be good for Lakeview,. The thing about Lakeview is, if you do something good the neighborhood is so loyal they will support it,” says White.
