Koz’s in Lakeview closes

Original Harahan location remains open



The Lakeview location of po-boy shop Koz's (515 Harrison Ave.) closed.

  Owner Max Gruenig made the announcement on his Facebook page Jan. 11. The original Koz's location (6215 Wilson St., Harahan, 504-737-3933;, run by Gruenig's father, Gary "Koz" Gruenig, remains open.

  "Almost 9 years ago, a little place became available and we jumped at the opportunity to bring back to New Orleans what we lost in Katrina, Koz's," Max Gruenig wrote in the post. "I was young, gleam eyed and determined. Everyday I have watched this neighborhood, this city change and grow; I have watched myself grow, from newly married to a father."

  Gruenig said he will leave the restaurant industry.
