The Hall on Mag: A New Dining Experience

Calling all New Orleans foodies!

This July marked the grand opening of The Hall on Mag, a highly anticipated eatery that sits in the same location of the old Auction House Market. The new establishment is black-owned and operated and hosts six kitchens with global food options.

The Hall on Mag was inspired by Jamal Wilson's Hall on Franklin in Tampa, Florida. Wilson recently opened a third location in Orlando, and hopes to have a fourth in Atlanta, very soon. The owner's goal is to set up these modern food hall's throughout the South and up the East Coast.

Find The Hall on Mag at 801 Magazine Street. Check out their website for more information!

The Hall on Mag now takes appointments on their Page.

The Concepts

The Hall on Mag is home to six different restaurants with six distinct personalities and dining experiences.


Pronounced it-zah-yah-na, the name of this Mexican inspired kitchen has Mayan origins and means "Gift from God". Itzayana boasts the fluffiest tacos, but they also serve a variety of snacks and sweets!

Our Rec: Rajas con Queso - a sweet chili taco with onions, peppers, corn, queso frito, garlic crema and charred tomato salsa.

El Greco

El Greco serves "a fresh take on Mediterranean classics". Try any of their tasty shareables, or a hearty fare for yourself.

Our Rec: Fig Compote, Citrus Hot Honey, & Grilled Pita - a divine mix for the table.
