Perhaps one of the most anticipated restaurant openings in Baton Rouge this fall has been Elsie's Plate & Pie.

Perhaps one of the most anticipated restaurant openings in Baton Rouge this fall has been Elsie's Plate & Pie. 

Next week, customers will finally get to dine at the new restaurant located at 3145 Government St., the former location of Honeymoon Bungalow, in the Mid City area. 

Currently, Elsie's is in a soft opening phase with limited hours, showing off its plates to the neighborhood and making final tweaks to the menu. When it does open fully next week, business hours will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday-Monday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday-Wednesday, and 11 a.m. to midnight Thursday-Saturday. 

The restaurant is named after chef/owner Paul Dupré's grandmother, and a small story about Elsie Marie Campeau Rupe is the first thing you'll see when you enter Elsie's. 

The menu is full of southern-style comfort foods. In addition to soups, salads and appetizers, Elsie's offers entrees like honey-brined bone-in pork chops, and red beans and rice with fried chicken as well as a boudin burger and patty melt sandwiches. 

One section of the menu is ingeniously named "Stuff on Bread," and here's where you'll find the burgers, po-boys and options like the Ogden Chicken (grilled chicken with havarti and avocado) and the Arlington Special Po-Boy (fried shrimp in an Asian sweet and spicy sauce on French bread). 

Oh, there are pies, too. 

The menu features sweet (apple, root beer float, s'mores and chocolate cream are a few of the selections) and savory pies (crawfish hand pie, Louisiana poulet pot pie, Carl's tomato pie, crab pie and a Natchitoches meat pie).
