Pythian Market (234 Loyola Ave.; www.pythianmarket.com) announced three more restaurants that will have booths in the food hub when it opens, possibly as early as February.
Adolfo Garcia's Ancora Pizzeria and Salumeria (4508 Freret St., 504-324-1636; www.ancorapizza.com), Jamaican restaurant 14 Parishes (1638 Clio St., 504-605-4453; www.14parishes.com) and Central City BBQ (1201 S. Rampart St., 504-558-4276; www.centralcitybbq.com) are among the latest eateries slated to serve food at the CBD spot.
The market will occupy the ground floor of the Pythian Building with a food hall concept. While the St. Roch Market is designed to foster developing restaurateurs, the Pythian Market is taking a different approach.
"This isn't going to be an incubator for food businesses," said Pythian Market General Manager Amy Chan. "We want to create a market with a wide-appealing menu that reflects New Orleans culture, so it makes sense to have trusted names delivering great cuisine that locals love and tourists will want to try."
Fourteen food vendors and several retail booths are expected to fill the market. There will be a bar called 1908 offering grab-and-go frozen drinks, local spirits, wines and cocktails. Several food vendors will offer alcoholic drinks to complement their menus, according to a release from market organizers.
Previously announced vendors include Frencheeze, Venezuelan purveyor La Cocinita, and juice concept Squeezed.
