Two seemingly disparate bits of recent news have collided this week. On Friday (May 8) Domenica restaurant (New Orleans) will close for a day-long production shoot of a scene for actor Brad Pitt’s new movie, “The Big Short.”

Pitt made news Wednesday with word that he and wife Angelina Jolie are selling their French Quarter mansion. (Pitt’s manager says don’t worry; the couple still loves the city.) Domenica chef and co-owner Alon Shaya made news Monday with the announcement he’d won a James Beard Award in the Best Chef: South category.

Domenica general manager Steve Jeffcoat would only confirm that the restaurant will be closed all day Friday but would not offer details about who might be on location for the scene.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have maintained a residence in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina.

The 1830s property owned by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie has a main house and a guesthouse
The row house owned by actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in New Orleans’ French Quarter is on the market at $6.5 million.

Set on a 5,920-square-foot lot, the charming dwelling has a front balcony, arch-topped French doors, flower boxes and dormer windows. The Traditional-style house includes five bedrooms, an updated kitchen, a laundry room, three full bathrooms and two half-baths within 7,645 square feet of living space.

Built in the 1830s, the brick house features Venetian-plastered walls, custom-designed marble mantles and crown moldings.

Despite putting their French Quarter mansion on the market, actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie haven’t fallen out of love with New Orleans, according to their manager.

Cynthia Pett-Dante, through the Brillstein Entertainment Partners — the company that manages Pitt — sent NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune a statement late Wednesday (May 6) night confirming the sale, but declaring the couple’s commitment to the city it has embraced since Hurricane Katrina.:

“Yes they are letting go of this property and will look for something more off the beaten path down the road. In the meantime, they remain committed to, and infatuated as ever with the city of New Orleans, and will continue to focus on growth in the lower 9th through the Make It Right Foundation.”

Brad Pitt was looking noticeably banged-up when he appeared at the 3rd annual Light Up the Blues Concert in Hollywood on Saturday.

However, the actor’s new look was no cause for alarm.

“This is what happens when you try to run up steps in the dark, with your arms full, wearing flip flops,” Pitt said in a statement to PEOPLE. “Turns out if you then try to stop your forward momentum with your face, the result is road rash.

“Regardless, I wasn’t going to miss the Autism Speaks benefit the night after – wonderful people and I was honored to be a part of this important event.”
