The South Market District, the mixed-used development downtown that continues to grow with retail and apartments, is getting something else. NOLA.com reports a Covington-based "kitchen boutique and cooking school" is moving into a space at The Beacon.
Simplee Gourmet’s 3,000 square-foot store at 1000 Girod St. will feature cookware from Le Creuset and offer a gift registry and classes.
The store will open "late 2016." That’s not the end of the South Market expansion, though: Another apartment building there, the Standard, is still to come.
