OUR STORY

Hey there, neighbors. 

Tucked away under the Perkins Road overpass in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Kalurah Street Grill strives to provide a dining experience with the utmost attention to detail. Our modern-American menu combines unique, regional and international flavors, innovative cooking techniques, and a contemporary twist to prepare a mealtime experience. 

Executive chef, Kelley McCann, brings his more than 10 years of award-winning experience to Kalurah Street Grill in hopes of offering a thoughtful, intentional, mouth watering menu to the Baton Rouge area. Kelley has a history of creating different types of cuisines by combining many styles of cooking, distinctive ingredients and techniques to create truly unique dishes. 

Kalurah Street Grill is set in a storied Baton Rouge building — the former home to the Colonel’s Club and Chelsea’s Café. Originally constructed in the early 1930s, the iconic landmark is a staple of the Garden District and we feel right at home in such a sweet neighborhood.  

Kalurah Street Grill offers a casual, one-of-a-kind dining experience. We invite you to become part of the neighborhood by experiencing a new kind of dining experience. 

What's in a name? 

Kalurah Street Grill faces a small road that inspired our name, Kalurah Street. Interesting part is, our physical address is actually 2857 Perkins Road.
