Warehouse District food hall Auction House Market (801 Magazine St.; www.auctionhousemarket.com) is now open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.
The team behind St. Roch Market on St. Claude Avenue and the Felicity Property Co. opened the food hall. It features nine food and drink vendors and the cocktail bar The Mayhaw.
Vendors include Aloha Lei, a sushi and poke concept from Tracey Davenport and Dave Kirtland. Egyptian couple Chris and Sandy Minias serve Middle Eastern dishes such as hummus, baba ghanoush, tabbouleh and gyros at Alpha. Chef Manish Patel's Tava serves Indian dosas with a variety of flavors and fillings, including a chaat dosa made with garbanzo beans and served with a tamarind and date chutney. Patricio Garcia and Jimena Urrutia's Empanola is an empanada maker that moved from St. Roch Market. Chef Patrick Kearney's HAPPYJAXX serves juices, salads and toasts, such as a curry toast topped with vegetable dal, mint and an Indian yogurt sauce. SOLA Deli, from chef Camdon Richardson, serves sandwiches filled with cured and cooked meats, aiolis, pickles and jellies. Brandon Blackwell and Jennifer Sherrod opened a second location of their seafood counter Elysian Seafood (the first is at St. Roch Market). It serves raw or char-broiled Gulf oysters and dishes such as marinated crab claws and shrimp cocktail.
Coast Roast Coffee, from local roaster and coffee shop owner Kevin Pedeaux, will serve coffee drinks such as classic drip, iced and frozen coffees.
