re: The 27 New Orleans restaurants that closed this summer
I'm plenty bearish about restaurant over saturation in this city but like at least make an attempt here. This is about rising rents not about restaurants. I'll go through each one.

Noodle and pie - several places, rising rent.
La Casita - rising rent, reopened and moved a block, another restaurant took it's old place (new place will close, is just sqft math.)
Primitivo - legit closure, feel like with noting Adolfo has had several places close.
Matt and naddies - 25 years, nothing else to say.
Charcoals - tax write-off for rich
Irish House - rent
Oxalis - rent / bywater hype peaked 3 years ago
3 Muses - rent, new place every year
Slice - I mean seriously they just changed the name its just a medicore Mexican restaurant instead of a mediocre pizza place, same owners.
Marcello's - metry
Ccs - who cares
Continental provision - propped up by tourism funding from city gov, prob just lost the handout
Mizado - see, Slice
Big Cheezy - see, Slice
Rosa Mezcal - never went, will put in legit closing bucket
Back to the Garden - will put in legit closing bucket but it was they for forever
Dreamie Weenies - there's probably 30 places in the VC that close every year
Cheezy Cajun - see, Oxalis
Cafe Henri - see, Oxalis
Altamura - well documented owner issues
Manhattan Jack - see Altamura
Giovanni - legit closing, 26 years is an insane run though
I'll posto - legit
Dat dog lakeside - come on man it's a hot dog stand in a fricking mall
GGs - legit but thought they were almost totally catering for the ten years
Part and Parcel - just changed name, literally same place place same location #fakenews
La Divina - legit


So we have like maybe 5 legit closings and I can't count how many openings but it certainly outnumbers the closings. It's not restaurants it's rent brahs. You ain't making it as poboy shop on magazine paying $10k a month unless your dad already live on Audubon.

Primitivo is a victim of location. In the middle of nowhere. Wouldn't be surprised when Toups South decides to pack up too.

GG's was probably somewhat rent related. For some reason they stopped selling alcohol too. Didn't get that.

Rosa Mescal could have been rent too. Their tacos were dry and they had to compete with Juan's for cheap tacos and a better place a block away with Mayas for everything else.

Agreed on all of that.
