Tooloulou, the Cajun eatery at Belvedere Square known for its pizza and po’boys, has closed its doors.
The restaurant at 529 E. Belvedere Ave. closed after service Saturday after more than five years in business.
Owned by Megan and Shawn Lagergren, Tooloulou made its Baltimore debut on Harford Road in 2012 and relocated to Belvedere Square in 2014. Tooloulou served Louisiana-style fare such as blackened shrimp po’boys, muffaletta sandwiches, smoked duck pizza and the Tooloulou pizza, topped with white sauce, crab, andouille sausage, banana peppers, mozzarella and Old Bay.
“We started in 2011 with the goal of bringing a taste of the South to our beloved Baltimore. Blood, sweat, tears and so much sacrifice have gone into our business. Sometimes, it's not enough,” the restaurant wrote on its Facebook page Sunday.
“We are deeply, deeply hurting with this loss and the closing of Tooloulou. Thank you for coming in and making memories with us. Until we meet again.”
The Lagergrens could not immediately be reached for further comment Monday morning.
