  • Mid-City barbecue spot Chef Scott's Creole BBQ has closed.

After more than 40 years in business, the beloved Lakeview Italian restaurant Tony Angello’s (6262 Fleur de Lis Drive, 504-488-0888) will close, The New Orleans Advocate reported.

The Lakeview Creole-Italian mainstay, which opened in 1972 and was best known for the multi-course “feed me” menu, will close Dec. 24, the report said.

Rumors that the restaurant would close have been circling since proprietor Anthony “Tony” Angello died at the age of 88 last year.

A call to the restaurant was not immediately returned.

Mid-City barbecue spot Chef Scott’s Creole BBQ (2660 Saint Philip St.,) has closed.

Demietriek Scott, who operated two iterations of the barbecue joint at the same location, confirmed the closure Tuesday, Dec.13.

Scott was longtime fixture working his grill at second-line parades and festivals before opening the brick-and-mortar Who Doo BBQ in 2015. He will take his barbecue show back to the road.

“We’re looking into getting a food truck and will still be selling our sauces in the future,” Scott said. Scott’s custom barbecue sauces are available at several supermarkets in the area, including Whole Foods Market.
