Longtime Georgetown waterfront presence Bangkok Joe's will close its doors June 1 to make way for a new Southeast Asian and French restaurant.
Owner Mel Oursinsini says the kitchen equipment was in need of an update, and that customers were looking for something newer and more contemporary. He and Chef/Owner Aulie Bunyarataphan will continue to operate the restaurant under its new concept.
Details on the new restaurant were slim, but it will be called Mama Rouge and open in September 2014 with the new look and menu.
