A new sushi restaurant has opened on Earhart Boulevard in Gert Town, donuts and mini-burgers will find a new home in the Lower Garden District this fall, and two Magazine Street eateries specializing in Ethiopian and Mediterranean cuisines have recently reopened.
Asuka Sushi and Habachi, which recently opened at 7912 Earhart, is operated by a chef who spent seven years at Sake Cafe but aims for a range of offerings for less than $10, reports Emma Boyce of NOLA Defender.
District Donuts.Sliders.Brew will offer craft-style doughnuts, mini-burgers and coffee next-door to Stein’s Deli in the Lower Garden District when it opens this fall, reports Todd Price of The Times-Picayune.
After a fire at a neighboring business closed Nile Ethiopian Restaurant (2130 Magazine) in April, it has reopened with a menu that still revolves around various meat and vegetable stews served atop crepe-like injera bread, reports Ian McNulty of our partners at Gambit.
Farther up Magazine, the former home of Persian/Turkish restaurant Courtyard Grill has reopened as Vida’s Bistro — with the same owners fusing their native dishes with other tastes, such as the “gyro muffuletta” or “meditchanga,” McNulty reports.
