Yesterday Eater reported that Uptown restaurant Vizard's was shuttering, but the space would still operate as a restaurant serving soups, salads, and other light fare. This is all true. However, in a strange turn of events, this yet-to-be-named restaurant will be run by Kevin Vizard.
Here's what Vizard's Facebook page had to say about the news: "Vizard's would like to thank all its Facebook fans and all its wonderful customers through the years! Unfortunately, we will not be reopening after Hurricane Isaac. You all have been extremely good to us and we appreciate your love and support! Chef Kevin has decided to do a casual style restaurant in the same location."
