Central City bar and eatery Black Label Icehouse (3000 Dryades St., 504-875-2876) has closed. Black Label opened in 2015 with pitmaster Damian Brugger serving Texas-style brisket, oversize burgers and whimsical takes on bar food. The eatery was part of a recent boom in the New Orleans barbecue scene. Brugger departed the restaurant last year and opened Brugger's Barbecue stall at St. Roch Market (2381 St. Claude Ave., 504-609-3813; www.strochmarket.com).
Just days before Black Label shuttered, Rob Bechtold and Aaron Burgau opened Central City Barbecue nearby.
