22 South Food Hall, an incubator for budding restaurateurs to hone their craft, will reopen in St. Pete. The ownership team made the announcement on Facebook on August 6. The concept was open for a few short months before those involved made the announcement that it would have to close. The loss of partner Vincent Jackson was cited as one of the reasons behind the closing.
Here’s the full announcement from the team behind the food hall:

22 South Food Hall officially opened its doors at the end of April. It transformed The Historic Manhattan Casino into a food hall, event hall, co-work space, commissary kitchen, and coffee shop. Partners Mario Farias, Greg Murray, Leigh Fletcher, and Tina Fischer worked exhaustively to revive the historic venue and have create an exceptional gateway between the Grand Central District and the Deuces Live area.
