Fireman Mike Gowland takes over Pizza NOLA 

Lakeview restaurant will reopen this spring

Pizza NOLA founder Will Samuels announced "Fireman Mike" Gowland will take over the Lakeview pizza restaurant Pizza NOLA. Samuels had announced Feb. 26 that he was closing the business.

  Gowland retired from the New Orleans Fire Department in 2012. He has been a food vendor at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival since 2001. He opened Rocksy's Cafe in Metairie in 2015, but it has since shuttered. Gowland is developing his own menu and is expected to reopen the restaurant before Jazz Fest, Samuels says.
