After two and a half years on Frankfort Avenue, Boujie Biscuit is no longer – at least in Louisville.
The Comfort Food Biscuits Restaurant operates on Frankfort Ave. Discontinued in 1813 and has moved to a new location at 10 Johnson Ave., Indianapolis, Indiana.
Owner Cyndi Joyner said the decision to move was one of the toughest she had to make since the concept was created in 2015. The move was first announced on April 11th and updated in early May.
Joyner said she needed to choose a new location for Boujie Biscuit with “better infrastructure that would allow my business to grow and thrive”.
Last year was “extremely challenging for all of us,” she wrote on Facebook. “I was saddened to know that I would be leaving some of the best customers I have known. But in the end I had to do what was best for me and the restaurant.”
Originally opened on Frankfort Avenue in 2018, Boujie Biscuit serves homemade comfort foods stacked between square buttermilk biscuits. Menu items cost between $ 8.50 and $ 10 and include a chicken pot pie biscuit ($ 10), a gravy train biscuit with pork sausage and creamy sauce ($ 9), and a maple bacon biscuit Biscuit ($ 8.50).
Joyner said she’d love to pop-ups in Louisville at some point, and hopes that guests will eventually head to Indianapolis for a few cookies as well.
“There really wasn’t anyone to trust my recipes when the year ended,” she said. “But I hope to be back one day. Where there’s a will, there’s a way!”
Joyner is offering a 20% discount on meals through July to encourage visits to the new restaurant with a stage and outside deck. The Indianapolis Restaurant is open Wednesday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 2.30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
