Saw on Lorin Gaudin's FB page that a new specialty butcher shop is to open later this year on Baronne in the 3900 block, the next block uptown from where Martin's once was. This again got me asking myself, so what is the deal Martin's? They tore down the old store and a bunch of nearby houses, poured a foundation, then appear to have abandoned the project. Every time I have asked Cedric and others at the store the last few years I have gotten a different answer, none of which ended up being correct, so I quit asking there. Would like to see the project finished.
