TROY — LeDoux’s Restaurant & Bar has relocated to 118 W. Main St. across from the Miami County courthouse in Troy.
The Cajun-themed restaurant opened in late 2009 on North County Road 25A north of Troy and near Upper Valley Medical Center. That location closed in September 2011, and the restaurant reopened at its new location in mid-November.
“There’s a lot of foot traffic here, and we have other restaurants in the vicinity,” said Don LeDoux, the restaurant’s owner. “Plus, this old building has a lot of character.” Business is improving steadily, LeDoux said, although, “A lot of people don’t know we’re here yet.”
At nearly 4,000 square feet, the new LeDoux’s seats about 100 people in four dining areas, and also offers a banquet facility that seats about 110, LeDoux said. A courtyard behind the restaurant will offer additional patio seating when the temperatures rise later this year.
LeDoux’s menu offers Cajun dishes that the restaurant is best known for, but has been expanded to include a greater selection of non-Cajun dishes, LeDoux said.
LeDoux has worked in various radio positions, including as the “Prize Guy” on what was the Nancy and Kerrigan Morning Show on K99.1-FM.
The new restaurant employs about 25. Its dining room hours are Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., and closed Sunday. The bar stays open later, and there is live music on weekends.
