Sweet Gals in the Lower Garden District has closed. The casual café first opened in October, serving a breakfast and lunch menu specializing in crepes and egg dishes.
The restaurant's storefront space at 1906 Magazine St. was previously home to J'Anita's. That restaurant closed last spring and relocated its operation to the tavern kitchen at the nearby Avenue Pub.
Sweet Gals opened not long after new owners revived the long-shuttered Jackson restaurant right next door, and at the time it looked like a mini boom was underway on that block of Magazine Street. It will be interesting to see what comes along next.
