Two restaurants and an urban farm shutter



Lakeview pizza hub Pizza NOLA (141 W. Harrison Ave., 504-872-0731; will close March 11, owner Will Samuels announced Feb. 26.

  Samuels and his wife Jennifer run the family-friendly pizza parlor known for its thin-crust pies, calzones, Sharknado watch parties and Carnival kick-offs. The restaurant also serves wraps, sandwiches, pasta and gelato. Samuels owns the Harrison Avenue restaurant space and plans to lease it. He also plans to sell Dong Phuong king cakes next Carnival season.

Bywater Hideout Cafe (941 Poland Ave.) has closed. The owners of the Poland Avenue breakfast and lunch spot made the announcement on its Facebook page Feb. 26.

  The cafe, previously called The Crepe Place, was opened in late 2016 by the team behind the Crepe Cart at the French Market. The cafe served sweet and savory crepes, coffee drinks and smoothies.

Urban farm and produce hub Hollygrove Market & Farm closed Feb. 26. A Facebook post by General Manager Paul Baricos announced the shutter.

  Last fall, the nonprofit produce grower market launched a fundraising effort after suffering a financial setback due to closures related to Hurricane Nate. Its organizers, who said the market survived "week to week," were able to raise $12,000 during the campaign, according to a page.
