Trendy Twins Opening Up a Cajun Spot on Myrtle


The blog The World’s Best Ever posted a photo of a storefront on Myrtle Avenue with the word “Swag” spelled out on an old theater marquee and asked the question: “Can somebody please explain?” Turns out Myrtle Minutes already has: “The nearly 1000sf storefront at 503 Myrtle Avenue has been vacant for almost a decade. Come early Spring, Dee & Ricky’s will be all moved in. The 20-seat restaurant will feature delectable Cajun, Soul and Caribbean dishes.” The restaurant is named twins who have a design firm, Dee & Ricky Jackson. They’ll manage the business along with owner Alvin Wray. The message on marquee has been changing for the past week or so. The restaurant will hopefully be open by Labor Day and will sport a “whimsical mural and lots of Lego-inspired surprises.” Sweet! GMAP

    Yeah, I read about this awhile ago. They’ve been known to design for popular hip hop artists such as Kanye West. I look forward to it. It should provide a nice counterpart to SoCo further down the block.

    Also, a former bodega right next to this appears to be getting some extensive renovations lately. I assume a restaurant is underway.

    More for Myrtle. I miss my beloved avenue.

  • I’m hoping that the Lego-inspired surprises will be food. Tower form will be excellent for tray service.

  • Really? Another restaurant for Myrtle Avenue? Do we really need another one? How much disposable income do they think people have in the neighborhood?

    I think what the neighborhood really needs is a quality traditional bakery or a basic, straight-forward butcher shop.
