Is Stanley Open?

Hey all--

Thinking about trying Stanley--finally--and I know it was in the process of moving. The website's down, and I can't seem to find any other info. Anybody know if it's open or where it is?

  1. As of yesterday afternoon they still had a sign out at the north corner of Jackson Square, but the space was unoccupied and didn't appear to be undergoing any active renovations or other work.

    I'm assuming it's stalled for the moment, not sure why they would tie up such a prime (and expensive) space if they were planning on moving elsewhere.

      I wouldn't get your hopes up. It's been 'about to open' since January. As far as I've heard, there hasn't been activity for months.

    2. Actually, all the tables, chairs, kitchen equipment and fixtures are in. The place looks almost ready to open. I would suspect Scott will want to be up and running as soon as possible - least with a soft opening - and certainly well before Mardi Gras. Back in the kitchen, we saw several fry stations and along the bar there are a couple of old-fashioned soda fountain fixtures, so we're guessing it's going to be a diner-like concept. Stay tuned, it can't be much longer.

        I stand corrected, and I'm happy to say it.

          Yes, I should have said it was furnished. So not occupied in the sense that I didn't see anyone moving around in there but not vacant/ abandoned.

        2. In Sept, there was work being done on the interior. Would hope that it was near. It looked to be about 3 good weeks away, but who knows?
