Uglesich Closed?

Laura Dec 24, 2003 01:44 PM

My mother-in-law was in NO last week and tried to go to Uglesich's. It was closed. I'm heartbroken. Any news if this is seasonal or permanent? I don't live in NO and need some local eyes and ears

      Thanks for easing my worries... I was concerned about one of our favorite places

        Fearing the worst, I just spoke with Gail Uglesich and they are definitely OPEN. Last year things didn't look so good, but they went ahead with the deal to put out their cookbook (which comes out in October) and part of the deal is that they stick around for a couple years.

        Great news for Uglesichophiles !!!

          Looks like they are closed! Are they? I just checked the website and it says they are.

            As this thread is 6 years old, they are indeed closed and have been for quite some time.

              They website looks current and it only says closed in hidden very small type snuck in on the bottom of the page

              They could have reopened, duh. I should get points for looking for older informative points rather then just blindly posting.

                It closed in May 2005, no plans on ever reopening. I would imagine the website stays current as you can probably order the cookbooks from there.

                  Terribly sad but good reasoning.

      yes, the restaurant is closed - on rare occasion they cook for special local events, but not in the old restaurant

      sounds strange, but they shut the restaurant down shortly before Katrina hit - talk about premonition!
