Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Another local gem has shut its doors recently: Second Line Creole Caribbean Cuisine.

At least, we can probably assume that from the "closed" sign in the window during its usual business hours, and the disconnected phone number.

New Orleans native Duma Shange had opened the south Phoenix restaurant back in January. As of the last time I stopped by for a catfish po boy and some creole sweet potatoes, half of the menu was not available, and my waiter promised that menu changes were in the works.

Too bad they didn't last very long.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
