news_luludestinMany of you have visited Jimmy Buffett’s sister Lucy’s restaurant in Gulf Shores, Alabama, and in 2015 she’ll open a second Lulu’s… this one in Destin, Florida.

Lucy “LuLu” Buffett, owner of LuLu’s at Homeport Marina, recently announced her plan to open a second LuLu’s location in Destin in a low-key way, via Facebook. She posted: “Uh, did I forget to mention…” along with a photo of a sign at the new spot. “Keep calm and eat gumbo,” the sign reads. “Destin 2015.”

Buffett’s new venture will be located close to her brother Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, which opened in Destin in February of this year. The siblings grew up in Mobile.

The new LuLu’s in Destin will be similar in size and atmosphere to the one in Gulf Shores, according to a spokeswoman for Buffett. The restaurant will be at the base of the Mid-Bay Bridge next to Legendary Marine, overlooking the Choctawhatchee Bay, according to a letter from Buffett on the LuLu’s website.

“I always thought the Florida Panhandle would be the perfect place for another LuLu’s,” she wrote. “We’ve had many offers to open one in other places, but it never quite seemed to be the right time or place. I’d always muse, ‘I will one day, when…'”

If all goes to plan, Buffett’s “one day” will happen sometime next year.
