One of the best trends for inner-loopers is the migration of some of the best outside-the-beltway destinations now setting up shop downtown.

First there was the announcement of a Phoenicia Specialty Foods going in at One Park Place — first scheduled for spring, it's now slated for an October opening— followed by the owner and chef of Ray's Grill debuting Sorrel in Upper Kirby.

Now Georgia's Farm to Market, a popular restaurant and indoor market on the west side of Houston with a focus on foods that are local and organic, is on its way, as first reported by Eater.

 Georgia's has announced plans for a second location in the former Byrd's space on Main Street at Prairie downtown, to debut in November.

 Georgia's has announced plans for a second location in the former Byrd's space on Main Street at Prairie downtown, to debut in November. According to the Chronicle, the new Georgia's downtown will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner including "a hot bar and salad bar along with sandwiches, burgers and pastas...grab-and-go salads, wraps, sandwiches and breakfast items," with the interior space to be redesigned by Zeigler Cooper Architects.

Georgia's, owners Georgia and Rick Bost, are founders of Urban Harvest, a nonprofit organization that runs several farmers markets around Houston, and the duo also run Hibiscus Hill Plantation in Waller county, which includes a working ranch and farm as well as a horticultural nursery to house their unique strain of hibiscus.

Are you a fan of Georgia's? Do you think it can succeed where Byrd's failed?
