The Magazine Street location of Bayou Burger has closed its doors, according to a tipster and confirmed by a spokesperson for Creole Cuisine Restaurant Concepts, the group behind the restaurant.
The burger spot, which opened just a year ago, was the first expansion of the original Bayou Burger, which opened (and remains open) on Bourbon Street in 2012. The burger joint was known for a ridiculous number of TV screens flashing along the walls, a Gleason burger (named for former Saints star Steve Gleason, who has ALS), and an extensive build-your-own-burger bar.
The closure is the second loss for that small stretch of Magazine, which saw the first news of the closure of Amici Ristorante & Bar late last week.
A spokesperson for the company said that Creole Cuisine Restaurant Concepts is planning to develop another restaurant at the location, but no details were available.
