Big news this week for Pythian Market, the hotly anticipated food hall hitting the CBD by late summer 2017.
Beloved taco truck La Cocinita and bagel hotspot Laurel Street Bakery have both come aboard as opening vendors, according to a press release. They’ll join previously-announced grilled cheese hub Frencheeze and its juice bar Squeezed as the first of 19 food options expected for the spot, which will be the third revitalized neighborhood food hall to hit New Orleans since 2015, alongside St. Roch Market (chugging along on St. Claude Ave since April 2015, but not without controversy) and Dryades Market (which got off to a rocky start on O.C Haley Blvd. in April 2016, and is still rather on shaky ground).
Pythian Market is expected to have a food truck rally vibe, though with air conditioning and seating in the 20,000-square-foot space, located on the ground floor of an upcoming mixed-use development at 234 Loyola Avenue ie. right smack in the middle of the medical schools/downtown office crowd lunch frenzy zone.
The Pythian Building, which is currently being redeveloped by Green Coast, ERG Enterprises and Crescent City Community Land Trust, will also include office space, housing, and more retail.
