Two New Orleans restaurants robbed 

Two New Orleans restaurants were robbed at gunpoint last week.

  Armed men held up a group of diners at Lakeview Harbor (911 Harrison Ave., 504-486-4887; Tuesday, July 12. According to a preliminary report from New Orleans police, the robbery took place shortly before 11 p.m. when two men clad all in black wearing ski masks barged into the restaurant. Armed with a 9mm handgun and an assault rife, the assailants ordered 20 people who were inside the restaurant to lie on the floor. When one victim fled, one of the gunmen fired a shot and the intruders fled the scene, police said.

  Two armed men robbed Noodle & Pie (714 State St., 504-252-9431; Thursday, July 14, police said. The masked men entered the back of the Uptown restaurant about 10:50 p.m. One of the men brandished a gun and demanded money from two employees. The employees handed the assailants money from the cash register as well as a moneybag, police said.

  The incidents bring to mind a series of armed robberies at Patois, Atchafalaya and Monkey Hill Bar last summer. In January, four men were indicted on charges in those incidents.
