RANDALL BORNE REOPENS RANDALL'S ON WELTON STREET . . . When Randall learned that he had to close his five-year-old restaurant and bar, Randall's at Pierre's, to make way for a new townhouse development, he immediately sought out a new space. 

2157 Downing Street - former home of
Randall's at Pierre's - now new townhome development
He wanted to reopen as soon as possible, but soon discovered that the space he'd found in the 2700 block of Welton Street needed a lot of work.  He suddenly needed to find yet another space.

In December he landed at the former New Climax at 2217 Welton Street, where he opened the next Randall's on December 19, 2014 exactly eight months after shuttering the 2157 Downing Street location. (That building, which was home to the legendary Pierre's for decades, is now gone altogether.)

Check out the Disco Ball - Randall takes full advantage of the Stage with rotating 
Jazz & Funk bands  every Friday, 6 pm to 9 pm (no cover charge).

The Welton Street location was pretty much ready for him to move in, with booths lining the walls and a dance floor that doubles as dining space; he just added some televisions. It already had a stage, and Borne is taking full advantage of it, with rotating jazz and funk bands every Friday (6 to 9 p.m., no cover), a twenty-piece jazz orchestra every first and third Tuesday, and a three-piece set the other Tuesdays. The crowd, which tends to be older (forty and up) enjoys the jazz, he says. He had a blues show on Valentine's Day, and vows that he will never play hip-hop, unless someone decides to sing it during the new Sunday Karaoke.

Booths line both sides of dance floor.

Now called  Randall's   at New Climax, the restaurant is a family business. Borne is the youngest of sixteen siblings, many of them cooks - and he says he's not the best in his family. One family member inspired him to open the business in the first place: "My brother, Paul, passed away in 1998, and it was his dream to own his own bar and restaurant. So I tried it, and has stuck with it ever since," says Borne.

The New Orleans native brings a touch of home to his food, which is all Cajun and Creole. He creates the recipes and then hands them over to staff. Borne does all the preparation, too, and says he works in the kitchen about half the time. 

Catfish (Nuggets or Filet), Shrimp, Tilapia, Wings, Pork Chops, Hot Links, Burgers, Sandwiches, Red Beans and Rice, Dirty Rice, and more. . . 

Kitchen is open daily til 11:00 pm

Another tradition he brought to Randall's is the bell:  When a guest rings it once, everyone at the bar gets a shot; twice, everyone in the restaurant gets a shot.  As you can see, Randall is a New Orleans Saints fan but truly welcomes all the Bronco fans to park there as well, after all, this is Denver Broncos territory!
