Parran’s Po-Boys plans to bring some flavor Uptown. The popular Metairie po-boy spot plans to open a new location on Prytania Street this May.

The restaurant’s new home at 4920 Prytania Street previously housed long-running sushi restaurant Kyoto, followed by Flying Pig Cafe which took over the space for only four months.

Owner Al Hornbrook says he’s looking forward to expanding Uptown.

“We always wanted to go into New Orleans, and when the opportunity came about, we had to take it,” Hornbrook said.

Hornbrook says the new Uptown restaurant will start with a slightly scaled-down version of the massive Metairie menu. He says the more limited menu is only temporary, while the restaurant settles into the new location.

Of course, diners won’t miss out on po-boys at the new location. Other menu items will include Italian-Creole plates, fried seafood and pizza.

The original Parran’s location in Metairie opened in 1975, with Hornbrook’s family taking over the spot in 1990. A second location in Kenner was added in 2015. The Uptown restaurant will be Parran’s third location.
