Booshay's Bayou Cafe

Booshay’s Bayou Cafe in Longview announced Monday, July 15, 2019, that it had closed its doors.

Longview now has one fewer restaurant specializing in Cajun food.

Booshay’s Bayou Cafe announced today on Facebook that it is now closed.

Brett Edmonds opened the restaurant along with his business partner, Chad Armstrong, in February 2018 at 1217 block of McCann Road in the former Bootlegger Grill. Before that, the building housed McCann Street Grill.

Booshay’s served Cajun dishes, including jambalaya, etoufee, chicken and sausage gumbo, fried catfish and oysters.

The food from Booshay’s still will be available through Booshay’s Catering.

The Facebook post announcing the closure also read, “We look forward to serving you for all of your catering needs,” and advised readers to visit them at the Great Texas Balloon Race, July 25-28.
