NOLA Caye, a Central Business District restaurant popular for its hefty brunch menu, is permanently closing its doors after four years in business.
Owners of the restaurant announced the decision in an Instagram post Monday, where locals took to the comments sections to wish the owners well and reminisce about their favorite NOLA Caye dishes — the grits and grillades, thick-sliced bacon and heavy-on-the-champagne mimosas.

“It has been an honor and a privilege to have met and befriended so many wonderful people over the past four years,” the owners said in the Instagram post, which did not allude to why the restaurant is closing. “Over the next two weeks, we invite you to enjoy your final meal with us and say goodbye to our incredible staff.”
The restaurant’s last day will be its Christmas Eve dinner service.
Co-owners Bryan and Brook Zar opened NOLA Caye at 898 Baronne Street in December 2019 with a focus on melding Caribbean and traditional Southern flavors. The Zars also own Restaurant des Familles in Marrero.
