Bar at LD’s Kitchen officially allowed to reopen



As of Friday, Oct. 30, LD’s Kitchen has been allowed to reopen its bar and lounge.

The bar and lounge portion of LD’s Kitchen, located at 1111 Mulberry St., was ordered closed by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen earlier this month following a late-night shooting Oct. 6 that left three people injured. Wade Carter, 31, subsequently died of his injuries Oct. 9.

Mayor George Flaggs Jr. announced he would be asking the board to allow the reopening last week, and made it official at the Board of Mayor and Alderman meeting Monday morning.

“LD’s was allowed to open as of Friday night when Chief Moore walked through the facility and told me that everything was in compliance,” Flaggs said.

South Ward Alderman Alex Monsour voted against the ruling, but North Ward Alderman Michael Mayfield and Flaggs both supported it. The ruling stands with a 2-1 vote.

The bar at LD’s is under new management since the shooting, but is still owned by Larry Prentiss. The closing did not affect the restaurant or catering sides of the business.
