Several New Orleans restaurants close May 31 

Irish House, Three Muses and Oxalis closures follow several weeks of shuttered eateries

Three New Orleans restaurants closed May 31. Chef/owner Matt Murphy closed The Irish House (1432 St. Charles Ave.). Daniel Esses announced that he and his partners were shuttering Three Muses Maple (7537 Maple St.), the Uptown offshoot of the Marigny eatery, bar and music spot, Three Muses (536 Frenchmen St., 504-252-4801; Oxalis in Bywater also closed.

  Murphy opened The Irish House in 2011 and specialized in elevated pub fare and traditional Irish dishes. An announcement on the restaurant's Facebook page says both the building and the business are for sale.

  Three Muses Maple opened in fall 2016, nearly five years after the Frenchmen location debuted. Esses says it was hard to make ends meet at the Maple Street eatery, located in a quieter and more residential stretch.

  "We just had a slow start to 2017. ... Rather than wait and close when (we were) in major stress, we decided to get out now," Esses says.

  The Maple Street property has been sold to an out-of-town restaurant group who operate eateries in other cities, Esses says

  Several restaurants have shuttered in recent months, including Noodle & Pie, La Casita's Julia Street location, Nile Ethiopian Restaurant, Mat & Naddie's and Adolfo Garcia's Primitivo.
