Marcus Lalario (Li’l Woody’s, 95 Slide) has taken over the Central District space that was home to Catfish Corner for nearly 30 years, given it a structural upgrade and fresh paint job, and turned it into a New Orleans-influenced eatery serving fried chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits, biscuits and gravy, and fried okra. He’s also added a small bar serving beer, wine, and cocktails. As a nod to the building’s history, there’s fried catfish.
