  • April Bellow and Cam Boudreaux opened Killer Poboys.

Cam Boudreaux and April Bellow, who operate Killer Poboys (811 Conti St., 504-252-6745) inside the Erin Rose bar, are opening a second location at 219 Dauphine St., which formerly housed the brunch and slider restaurant Nosh. The new location is expected to open in late summer and will serve breakfast, salads, snacks and po-boys, Boudreaux says. They will be joined by Eric Baucom, who was the sous chef at Restaurant R’evolution at the Royal Sonesta.

Killer Poboys' original endeavor opened in spring 2012, tucked into the back of the raucous French Quarter watering hole steps off Bourbon Street. The changing menu of creative sandwiches has included a ginger and rum-glazed pork belly po-boy topped with lime slaw and garlic aioli and a Vietnamese-inspired shrimp sandwich topped with marinated radishes, carrots, cucumbers, cilantro and sauce.

Boudreaux says no changes are afoot at the original location, though operating hours may be extended.

The new location is larger and will have a dining area. The team will apply for a license to sell alcohol. If they're granted a license, they plan on selling craft beer in cans, wine and "hand-crafted, all natural and fresh fruit daiquiris," Boudreaux says.

Boudreaux says they hope to roll out a series of pop-up events and possibly expand into catering operations.

Bourdreaux and Bellow opened Dis Taco in the back of Molly's at the Market in July 2013, but it closed in May 2014.
