Jagerhaus is closing, moving to Rampart in 2017_lowres


After more than eight years of slinging schnitzel, sausage plates and beer in the French Quarter, German restaurant Jagerhaus will close its doors on Oct. 30 and reopen at a larger location on North Rampart Street in late 2017, according to a statement from the restaurant's owners.

  The restaurant is one of the few local spots to specialize in tradi- tional German and Central European fare.

  The new location at 714 N. Rampart St. formerly was home to the Funky Butt music venue, which shuttered after Hurricane Katrina. The new spot will have a larger dining room, a bar, a courtyard and a rooftop beer garden, according to the statement.

  In the meantime, a new taco concept, Cunada, will take over the Conti Street location by the end of the year.
