Central City Eatery Toups South to Close Their Doors Soon

Located inside the Southern Food and Beverage Museum in Central City, Toups South is the expansion of Toups Meatery, both owned by Cajun chef mastermind Isaac Toups and business partner/wife Amanda Toups. 

And unfortunately, the sentiment “all good things must come to an end” rings true here as they confirmed the closure of Toups South with Eater NOLA. The statement explained that due to “recent developments” including a new cookbook, producer line, and continuing success of Toups Meatery, it became an “operational necessity.” They have not posted the news anywhere on social media yet, nor an official closing date. 

Toups South features regional southern cuisine with fine food and cocktails. Some specialities on their dinner menu include Eggplant Dressing, Fried Bone-in Pork Chop Stack, Grilled New York Strip, and more. They opened Toups South in October 2016, around the same time that Chef Isaac appeared on season 13 of Top Chef. 

They have not confirmed an official closing date, so dine there now while you can!
