  • Ancora Pizzeria, 14 Parishes and Central City BBQ are the latest restaurants to join the growing list of food vendors at the Pythian Market, slated to open in early 2018 in the CBD.

Pythian Market (234 Loyola Ave.) announced three restaurants that will have booths in the food hub when it opens early next year.

Adolfo Garcia’s Ancora Pizzeria and Salumeria, Jamaican restaurant 14 Parishes, and Central City BBQ are among the latest eateries slated to serve food at the CBD spot.

The market, which will take over the ground floor of the Pythian Building, is expected to open as early as February 2018.

While similar food hall concepts, including St. Roch Market on St. Claude Avenue, are designed to foster up-and-coming food entrepreneurs, the Pythian Market is taking a different approach.

“This isn’t going to be an incubator for food businesses,” said the market’s 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.”

Currently, 14 food vendors are expected to occupy the market along with several retail booths. 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 Frenchcheeze, Venezuelan purveyor La Cocinita, and juice concept Squeezed. Laurel Street Bakery was originally slated to join the group but is no longer involved.
