Mason's Grill announces new ownership after 24 years
BATON ROUGE - Mason's Grill, a popular Baton Rouge brunch spot, has changed ownership after 24 years.
Mike and Shirlee Alfandre have sold the Jefferson Highway restaurant they created to Rober and Christina Alamirie.
The Alfandres announced the change on social media Thursday, thanking customers for decades of support. They said they wanted to ensure that the restaurant remained in local hands.
"We have so much to thank you for. We had so many things we wanted to include in this post, but it’s harder to type than we thought. It’s bittersweet. So, we’ll leave it at this. Thank you, Baton Rouge! You have always been there to support us—through good times and bad. Thank you for making us a part of your family and for becoming a part of ours. And, to our regular customers and our crew, you have no idea how special you are to us, truly. We are so grateful to you. We love you all so much!"
During Sunday brunch, WBRZ spoke to the new owner, Rober Alamirie, about what changes customers can expect to see. For the most part, he says he plans to keep the changes to a minimum.
“My wife is an interior designer so we may do a few touches here and there but mainly we want to keep it as is. The menu will stay the same," said Alamirie.
Alamirie added, he plans to add weekly specials to the menu that will feature different types of local Louisiana cuisine.
