Some locations just seem doomed, destining any and all who occupy them to a painfully expensive demise. History suggests that one such location is the spot of the former Krewe Crescent City BBQ at 11th Avenue and Lincoln Street; the most recent effort began less than a year ago and has already shuttered.
Right next door, however, Stoney's Bar and Grill has struck success, maintaining a steady stream of clientele and making itself at home over the last four years. Leadership at Stoney's seeks to expand next door, creating a private party area and diversifying their offerings, Cafe Society reported. Perhaps this change of pace will prove that, with the right operation, gold can be struck on the corner lot.
