Mizado Latin Kitchen will close after all, on July 1.
Mizado Latin Kitchen (5080 Pontchartrain Blvd., 504-885-5555), the Mid-City Mexican restaurant that announced plans to stay open less than a month ago, will close after all, a spokesperson for the restaurant said Tuesday.
The flip-flop comes after the restaurant owners announced their impending shutter in early May, only to backtrack a few weeks later, saying the “incredible influx of patronage” encouraged them to stay open after all.
Now the restaurant known for its creative spins on Latin cuisine and cocktails will close on July 1. It will be turned into a Zea Rotisserie & Bar, owned by the Taste Buds restaurant group, which also owns Mizado.
A restaurant spokesperson said the new Zea likely will open in around September.
