A new Korean spot and more top dining intel

Phil’s Grill closed its final location this week in Harahan, Louisiana.

HARAHAN The final Phil’s Grill has closed, Ian McNulty reports, marking the end of a decade-long run for the local burger almost-chain owned by Phil de Gruy. Phil’s Grill opened before burger spots touting high-quality ingredients and creative combinations dotted New Orleans’ culinary landscape, gaining a loyal following early on. In recent years, de Gruy has dealt with a failed attempt at expansion, increased competition on the high-quality burger front, and a personal battle with colon cancer. Phil’s Grill served its final burger on Tuesday. [Advocate]
