Crescent City Beignets Are Back on Westheimer

Crescent City, 6383 Westheimer Rd., Houston

Crescent City, 6383 Westheimer Rd., HoustonCrescent City Beignets closed its spot in the Lamar-River Oaks Shopping Center across from Lamar High School last April. Fourteen months later and 4-and-a-half miles to the west, something very much like it is opening up in a strip center strip endcap formerly occupied by a Dickey’s Barbecue Pit at 6383 Westheimer, outside the Loop and just east of Hillcroft. A reader tells Swamplot the interior of the shop is decorated with black-and-white posters of New Orleans scenes and scheduled to open late next week.

Gone West on Westheimer

  • Hopefully in this incarnation, it won’t be staffed with surly, indifferent employees and it won’t be the pig sty the old location had become.

  • Praise the Maker!

  • @JT- Agreed. Hopefully it will be the CCB of old, with hot food, good coffee and people who want to be working. Not the place right before close, with crap food, worse coffee and people who were dragged in, kicking and screaming, from the methadone clinic.

  • They were supposed to be a tenant at the new H-E-B center at Fountain View and San Felipe but I guess backed out…

  • Four-and-a-half miles to the west—oh well, that’s that.

  • They were awesome last time I was there back in 2013 at the River Oaks location. The crawfish etoufee was reasonably priced and as good as what you get in NOLA. Hopefully they do well.

  • Hope they have more food at this one, which is right across the street from us, like po boys.

  • Got confused about what week it was supposed to open. Tried to go last night but it isn’t open yet. No amount of whining at the door will get you some beignets.

  • Crescent city wil be open next week after Easter
