*UPDATE: Todd Price reports that the restaurant lost its lease and the owners are hoping to open up in another location.
Last night, Noodle & Pie announced on its Facebook page that its final day of service would be Mother’s Day, May 14. No reason for the closing was given, though Eater has reached out for comment and will update the story as information is available.
Here’s the note from the Facebook page:
The time has come for us to say goodbye. This chapter of noodle & pie has come to a regretful end at State & Magazine. Thank you to our neighbors who supported us and ramen loving customers from across the city,state & elsewhere. Our final day of service will be Mother's day, Sunday May 14th. Thank you.
The ramen and pie shop quietly opened in 2013 following the success of a “cult-favorite pop up from Dante's owner/chef Eman Loubier, sous chef Brian Armour, and pastry chef Kris Bouley.” In the middle of a nationwide ramen craze that never really took off in New Orleans (New Orleans has ya-ka-mein), locals were psyched to get Noodle & Pie. The quirky spot that shoved together two popular trends, noodle and pie, quickly became a favorite.
The city will not be without its ramen, however. Gert Town’s Kin ditched fine dining for all-day ramen last year.
