While there is still no word on who is going to move into the Bonnie Bell’s Bistro spot downtown, former chef Paul Gibson, who opened up The Mess Hall on Kaliste Saloom several months ago, is set to open his next venture.The second Mess Hall will be located at 1403 Eraste Landry, near the Coca-Cola building.

Gibson, who is married to Bonnie Bell, is having a good time using his experience as an army cook to riff on menu items like his dynamite Bazooka Burger, (Jalapeño seasoned meat, pickle, pepper jack and topped with potato chips) The Grunt (a steak sandwich), and the Airborne (a grilled chicken BLT with cheese). The Eraste Landry Mess Hall will offer some new items including wraps, and Gibson’s Submarine Dog, a 10 inch long, 8 oz all beef dog. “It’s the biggest hot dog in town,” he says, “you’re gonna love it.”

As for the building, a former donut shop, look for the red, yellow and white stripes. “You can’t miss it,” says Gibson.
