Politan Row is a chef-driven food hall platform featuring a thoughtfully-curated mix of local food and beverage talent. We create destinations for the culinarily curious to explore a variety of new cuisines.

We offer an elevated food hall experience that encourages the exploration of shareable dishes in beautiful, inviting, and communal spaces. We believe that enjoying a meal in one of our design-forward spaces has the power to inspire sharing, community, and conversation.

Our mission is to serve people who crave unique flavors, experiences, and ideas while creating opportunities for chefs to showcase their creativity. We hope to foster a spirit of exploration by connecting people through food.

Politan Group is home to a family of properties including our first and anchor concept, St. Roch Market New Orleans, followed by St. Roch Market Miami in the city’s Design District, Auction House Market in New Orleans’ Warehouse District, and, opened in May 2019, Politan Row Chicago, followed by Politan Row Houston in Fall 2019. Politan Group concepts vary from city to city—reflecting the unique culinary landscape of each location. They re-envision and elevate the food hall experience while celebrating the individuality of each city and its diverse citizens and visitors.


A Visual Language

“The identity uses custom typography to express the communal spirit of the halls and the diversity of their offerings… The approach suggests a newspaper masthead, giving the identity a local, community feel.”

PAULA ScHER, Pentagram
