  • Cajun Corner to build modern location in Uptown

    Building on the great reception of their first location and experience with 23rd Street as a district, the proprietors of the popular Cajun Corner in far Northwest Oklahoma City are set to start construction on an ambitious new site in the ever-growing Uptown district.

    Brothers Rick and Nam Nguyen once owned the vacant lot at 312 NW 23rd, sold it to the Good Egg Dining Group, then last week bought it back.

    The Nguyens had once envisioned a Korean barbeque restaurant on the site and decided to dust off those plans by Ken Fitzsimmons of TASK Design and tweak them slightly for a new Cajun Corner.

    The proposed two-story building will feature a patio along 23rd and a large rooftop deck. There will two full bars on each floor which a large craft beer selection.

    The restaurant will be counter service but with attentive table runners to make sure patrons receive the same great service that has become the hallmark of the original Cajun Corner on Council Road just south of NW Expressway.

    That first restaurant has found a loyal following through updated Cajun fare, with Asian and Southern influences.

    The brothers aren't new to fusion cuisine, having previously launched both Guernsey Park and Covell Park in Edmond.

    The plan is to move forward quickly with the new building, which will be yet another in-fill project for the thriving Uptown / 23rd Street district.

    Last month, it was announced that Coop Ale Works will be redeveloping the massive former Armory Building just east of I-235. Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin Robbins will soon open in a new structure on the northeast corner of Hudson and 23rd.

    The new operations will join dozens more that have opened in the corridor in just the last few years.
