Phoenicia Ribbon Cutting

On Thursday, November 10, downtown business leaders joined the Tcholoakian family in making the launch of the new Phoenicia Specialty Foods Downtown (1001 Austin Street, Houston 77010). Phoenicia has expanded, now offering foodies two locations-the original in West Houston and the Downtown venue.

Located on the ground level of One Park Place luxury high-rise across from Discovery Green, the new Phoenicia Specialty Foods Downtown is a 28,000 square foot, state-of-the-art market. In addition, the downtown location features an in-house wine and beer bar called MKT Bar.

Home Stretch - Phoenicia Downtown Construction

Construction of Phoenicia Specialty Foods Downtown has been progressing fabulously and our newest YUMMY location is scheduled to open in late October 2011. We’re putting the finishing touches on the interior construction now, and throughout September, we’ll be fine-tuning the market and stocking the shelves with Phoenicia’s quality international products.

Located across from Discovery Green in the One Park Place luxury high-rise (1001 Austin Street), Phoenicia will satisfy our downtown neighbors with 26,000 square feet of foodie delights. In addition to offering more than 10,000+ products from more than 50 countries, we will offer delicious prepared meals, a sandwich station, salad bar and a bakery with desserts and breads prepared daily by European and Mediterranean chefs. The newest Phoenicia will also feature the MKT BAR, an in-house coffee, wine and beer bar that will surely be a downtown gathering spot.

Phoenicia Downtown is a unique destination for downtown Houstonians, foodies and visitors alike. We look forward to welcoming you to our new home.
