Bangkok Joe’s today announced that it will officially close its doors as of June 1, 2014 to make room for a new, modern restaurant boasting a Southeast Asian and French inspired menu.
“After continuous high traffic for over a decade, with the same equipment being used every day, repeatedly in the kitchen, there was a need to update the kitchen equipment and furniture,” said owner Mel Oursinsini. He added, “We also recognized that over time the needs of our customers had evolved. We felt the time was right to bring a new contemporary restaurant to the same beautiful location, Georgetown’s Washington Harbour.”
Bangkok Joe’s opened in 2003. Ownership is now completely revamping the restaurant with a fresh vibe and interior, new name and new menu.
The new restaurant, named “Mama Rouge,” is scheduled to open in September 2014.
