Justin Simoneaux recently left the Moss Room to open his own place, and it turns out that place is the new Absinthe off-shoot, Boxing Room, in the former Citizen Cake spot at Gough and Grove. As the Scoop further reports, the ETA on the project has been pushed to early 2011, marking the first of many likely updates to our Fall Preview.
For those who may not recall, Simoneaux was a 2009 Chron Rising Star, and with Boxing Room he’ll be able to showcase his love for the Cajun and Creole cuisines of his native New Orleans.
