Portico closes Coursey location

Portico, a casual dining restaurant, has closed its Coursey Boulevard location.

An employee at the Portico location at 4205 Perkins Road said the decision was made to close the restaurant at 11777 Coursey Blvd. in order to concentrate on the Southdowns eatery.

Portico, based in Monroe, entered the Baton Rouge market in 2012 with a location in the old Calendar’s, near Coursey and Sherwood Forest Boulevard. Last year, the Perkins location opened in the Southdowns Village Shopping Center.

Portico also has a restaurant in Ruston.
