Denise Lane’s latest restaurant concept is something she has been thinking about for the past two years or so and it has an autobiographical twist to it.
“I was raised in Louisiana and the south,” Lane said. “I had a French grandmother, who had a real French influence when it came to food. And I also had a grandmother who grew up on a riverboat and she really knew how to have fun and had quite the New Orleans Cajun influence.”
Lane envisions “Dixie Girl,” which is scheduled to open for lunch in late May in the space formerly occupied by the Central Avenue Grill, to have that kind of influence.
