Five months after opening its first Tarrant County location in Mansfield, The Lost Cajun restaurant has its sights on Keller.
The new restaurant – located at 721 Keller Parkway – will be owned and operated by Jason “Jay” and Janice Smith, who discovered the brand while visiting family in Midland.
“We are thrilled to bring The Lost Cajun’s culture to Keller,” said Jay Smith. “We will offer an exceptional dining experience that is not just another sandwich shop, pizza parlor or burger joint. The brand’s authentic Cajun food, southern hospitality and remarkable atmosphere has already resulted in so much recognition throughout Texas. We’re confident that the local community will welcome our concept with open arms.”
Originally from South Louisiana, the Smiths moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area shortly after Hurricane Katrina. Jay has spent over 15 years as a safety engineer while Janice currently works in the engraving and promotional products industry. They have four children, Jason, Jenny, Julie, and Jonathan.
“We believe that The Lost Cajun’s culture and atmosphere, friendly staff, and of course great consistent food will make us a popular destination in Keller,” said Janice. “It’s exactly the kind of hospitality we wanted to bring to our community.”
The Lost Cajun’s menu offers diners a sampling of traditional Cajun fare, including a variety of gumbos – seafood, chicken and sausage, and vegetarian. Red beans and rice, fried seafood, crawfish etouffee and lobster bisque also top the menu, as does another Cajun staple, jambalaya.
The Lost Cajun expects to develop 5-6 restaurants throughout the Northern Fort Worth suburbs over the next few years.
