Two new restaurants — a taqueria and a ramen shop — are now open on Magazine Street. New Orleans mini-chain Juan’s Flying Burrito has unleashed its fourth location at 5538 Magazine St., the Uptown Messenger reports. The restaurant situated at the corner of Magazine and Joseph Street replaces Slice Pizzeria, which closed its doors on June 7.
Slice and Juan’s are both owned by the same restaurant group. The first Juan’s Flying Burrito was established on Magazine Street in the Lower Garden District in 1997 and eventually developed into a “Creole Taqueria.” Juan’s also operates locations in Mid City and CBD.
Likewise, the Messenger reports that ramen restaurant Nomiya (no-me-yah) has also opened its doors. The spot, which filled the former Rivista space at 4226 Magazine St., is gearing up to a more official grand opening on August 13, according to the Nomiya Facebook page. It’s one of only a handful of ramen shops in New Orleans including Kin in Gert Town.
