Olive Branch Café is a local Italian chain with three locations in the metro area. After today, though, there will only be two: The Mid City location, in the American Can Apartments on Orleans Avenue, is closing today. When that one shutters, the company will be left with just two locations, both on the West Bank in Algiers and Marrero.
Rent for the commercial spaces on the bottom floor of the American Can building are not cheap, which Eater hears has led owner Russell Autry to close that location.
