In June 2012, The Southern Food and Beverage Museum broke ground on a new 30,000-square-foot facility, which will include a restaurant, an exhibit for each of the 17 southern states*, a children’s gallery and a cultural innovation center.
This facility at 1504 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard, New Orleans, Louisiana — along with the SoFAB Culinary Library — is scheduled to open in March 2013.
In the meantime, visit the museum at the Julia Street entrance to the Riverwalk Marketplace in New Orleans, Louisiana — where it opened in June 2008.
The Southern Food and Beverage Museum is a nonprofit living history organization dedicated to the discovery, understanding and celebration of the food, drink and the related culture of the South.
