The founders of food truck and former St. Roche Market outpost Dirty Dishes are cooking up a new restaurant in Lee Circle. Todd Price reports that Artis and Leslie Turner are plotting a new breakfast and lunch eatery Pressed inside the recently unveiled Greater New Orleans Foundation Center for Philanthropy.

The couple tells The Times-Picayune that Dirty Dishes vacated its space at the food hall last August due to the demanding schedule that forced them to stay open all week, while most of the stall’s business was being done during weekend brunch.

GOOD MORNING GUYS!!! FOLLOW OUR PROGRESS @pressednola #pressednola #nolapressed Special thanks to @definegraphicdesign for this amazing logo!

The new venture will serve a variety of pressed wraps, salads, baked goods (some vegan and gluten-free), and fresh juices catering to busy work crowds. Pressed is currently in the throes of a buildout, but the Turners are targeting an early March debut.
