The Times-Picayune reports that The Southern Food and Beverage Museum (SoFAB) broke ground on Monday on their new 30,000-square foot facility scheduled to open in March 2013. Plans include a restaurant, an exhibit for each of the 17 Southern states and Washington, D.C., a children’s gallery and a “culinary innovation center.”

The SoFAB Culinary Library will open around the same time with 9,000 volumes in its facility, down the block at 1609 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard.

The museum is being built at 1504 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard in the former location of the Dryades Market, a now-empty building from the days of the late 19th and early 20th century.

This week’s ground breaking is an important milestone in the renewal of Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard.
