Two French Quarter restaurants closed in recent weeks. Chef Scott Boswell closed his high-end culinary showpiece Stella! His Jackson Square diner Stanley (547 St. Ann St., 504-587-0093; www.stanleyrestaurant.com) remains open.
Kingfish (337 Chartres St., 504-598-5005; www.cocktailbarneworleans.com) chef Greg Sonnier's soup-and-salad sidecar Counter Market and Deli also shuttered. The fate of the Counter space is still up in the air, but it may be used for private parties or to accommodate large groups of guests dining at Kingfish. Kingfish serves lunch and dinner daily.
