Bourbon Street Bar & Grill coming to downtown Puyallup

Staff writerAugust 28, 2013 

When Bourbon Street Bar & Grill opens this fall in downtown Puyallup, owner Mike de Alwis pictures a dining experience that’s affordable and aimed at date night diners. As the New Orleans inspired name suggests, the menu will tread into Louisiana dining with a menu of steaks and seafood.

de Alwis has discovered that you can’t turn a gas station into a restaurant without attracting a lot of attention. Downtown dwellers check in frequently to ask when the restaurant will be open and to inquire about the months-long construction project, which has included replacing the floor, plumbing and electrical in the building. As de Alwis joked by phone, “The only thing I didn’t do was knock down the four walls.”

The restaurant has a small dining room up front – diners of all ages will be welcomed there – with another area portioned into a 20-seat full-service bar. When our mercurial weather cooperates, he’ll offer patio and deck seating, too.
