Less than a month after Harahan burger joint Phil's Grill closed, a new burger and shake spot is set to open in its place. Desi Vega's Prime Burger and Shakes will open at 1640 Hickory Ave. in April.
The restaurant is the latest eatery from the team behind Mr. John's Steakhouse (2111 St. Charles Ave., 504-679-7697; www.mrjohnssteakhouse.com) and Desi Vega's Steakhouse (628 St. Charles Ave. 504-523-7600; www.desivegasteaks.com). The new restaurant is named after Desi Vega, the managing partner of Mr. John's.
Menus and details are still in the works, but the restaurant is expected to open in the next two weeks, said an employee of the St. Charles Avenue steak restaurant.
