Phoenicia Breaks Ground Downtown

Downtown just got YUMMY!

Construction has officially begun on Phoenicia Specialty Foods’ new downtown Houston location. The 28,000-square-foot international foods market will open for business in spring 2011.
On November 3rd, an impressive turnout of 500+ Phoenicia fans (long-time and new) were given a first look at what’s planned for the space and an opportunity to meet the wonderful Tcholakian family and their team of architects and designers.

Guests enjoyed live music by the Joe Trombatore Jazz Band and food samplings from an International Tasting Room featuring:

* A boutique beer sampling bar
* An Eastern cheese tour
* A signature gelato corner
* A YUMMY! dips tasting table
