A downtown restaurant has permanently closed after a stolen vehicle crashed into the building last week, causing extensive damage.
Raphyael Tyson, owner of Daq’s Crazy & Wing’z, thanked all those who have supported the business in a bittersweet farewell on social media.
“As our journey has come to a close, we want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to each one of our customers and their unwavering support throughout the years. Your laughter, conversations, and shared moments have made this restaurant a cherished place in the community,” said Tyson. “It’s with a bittersweet feeling that we bid farewell. Your loyalty and friendship have meant the world to us. Thank you for being an integral part of our story.”
According to police reports, two suspects stole the vehicle from Bonham Street shortly after 3 a.m. on Dec. 21 and fled when police attempted to stop the vehicle. A short time later, they crashed into Daq’s Crazy & Wing’z on the NE corner of the Plaza downtown.
Tyson shared security footage of the wreck online in hopes someone could identify the two suspects.
At the time of this publication, no arrests have been made.
The New Orleans “sit-in” style restaurant, which opened in 2019, featured 33 different flavors of wings and 12 daiquiri machines.
