You can now get a little slice of New Orleans in Columbus’ Arena District.
Creole 2 Geaux opened its brick-and-mortar location at 401 N. Front St. on Feb. 28.
Janvier and Sharif Ward’s New Orleans-inspired eatery—which serves shrimp and chicken po’boys, creole bowls, jambalaya and more —debuted as a food truck in 2015 and at East Market in 2022. This is the restaurant’s first standalone location.
Janvier said the Arena District location would be the restaurant’s home base, with many of its most popular dishes moving to the new location.
“Those recipes are so special near and dear to my heart,” Janvier said. “I just wanted to keep them consistent.”
