Highland Village Shopping Center is now home to French Brasserie-inspired LaCour Kitchen and Bar.

The media-exclusive grand opening was celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony, meet-and-greet segment, special remarks from local leaders, and free beignets, live music, drink specials and door prizes.

The restaurant, located at 4500 I-55 N Frontage Rd., Suite 130, will be open seven days a week. The menu will feature lunch, dinner, late night and weekend brunch specials alongside a curated bar program. A jazz pianist will also be on-site during later hours to entertain guests.

"LaCour is the first French Americano Bistro in the City With Soul, but it holds much more meaning,” says Dr. Jerrick Rose, owner of LaCour. “The opening reflects the growth of our city and brings new excitement and energy to Jackson's culinary landscape."

Jonathan Shull Design created the restaurant’s design concepts and brand identity, Mid State Construction was the contractor and Hotel & Restaurant Supply provided food service equipment.

"As we are in the infancy of our Bicentennial year, Jackson has now reached a significant milestone,” says CEO and President of Visit Jackson, Rickey Thigpen. “LaCour is the 200th uniquely and locally owned restaurant to open in the Capital City. Now, an integral part of Jackson's history, LaCour is welcomed into Jackson's rich culinary tradition that consistently resonates with visitors and locals alike."

Lynsie Armstrong, Marketing Director of Highland Village, added, “Highland Village prides itself on being the city’s top destination for local flavor. The addition of LaCour will not only enhance the soulful nightlife of the village, but be the perfect complement to our already beloved eateries.”
