We at Southern Living were saddened to hear of the passing of Craig Noone, 32, executive chef and owner of the Parlor Market restaurant in Jackson, Mississippi (featured in the November issue of Southern Living), on Friday, October 14.

A Jackson native, Craig attended Jackson Academy before receiving a business degree from Mississippi College and studying with the Texas Culinary Academy’s Le Cordon Bleu program. After working as a chef in restaurants in Italy, New Orleans, Dallas, and Atlanta, Craig returned home and opened Parlor Market in downtown Jackson last September.

Craig opened the restaurant in a historic 1898 building on West Capitol Street that had housed (among other businesses) a meat market, grocery store, lumber company, and the offices of the Dixie Marble Company.  Wanting to honor that past, Craig researched the building’s history at the Mississippi Department of Archives while planning the restaurant, and later incorporated elements of the former occupants such as a marble-counter oyster bar, and reclaimed wood in the hostess station and furnishings.

He also used elements of the city’s culinary past in a changing menu that featured tamales and house-made kibbeh, as well as innovative twists on Southern specialties such as Mississippi rabbit roulade with glazed heirloom carrots and lemon lentils.

That combination of local history and classic cuisine made Parlor Market one of the city’s most popular restaurants. As Craig said shortly after his restaurant opened, “we’re not just trying to do good food here. We’re trying to bring back some of the history of downtown Jackson.”

    It is even more ideal that the attorney has represented clients against the same insurance company
    before. Some prefer a conventional professional fee that can mainly rely on how complex the case is.
    It is also possible for people to request information about the success rate of the attorney in handling cases related to car accidents.

    Tampa Personal Injury Lawyer has been fighting for the rights of injured people for well from many years.
    Injury attorneys are lawyers that actually work to relieve the stress of the hard time by recovering
    compensation for the injury. In order to know about personal injuries claims it is important
    to know about the legality of the claim and the ways in which
    the compensation is paid to the injured party.

    or can’t meet legal professionals, go hang out at the local courthouse.
    Typically, this could cover bites by domesticated animals such as dogs,
    ferrets, cats and even birds.

    My deepest condolences to the family. May his good soul rest in peace. It is never easy to lose a loved one but finding people who is going through the same thing could help a bit. I thought I’d share this site as it helped me get through a similar predicament when I lost someone very dear to me.

    He has accomplished a lot during the time he was alive. He also had a lot of contribution to society that it will surely be missed now that he is gone.

    My husband and I were at Parlor Market during the Southern Living photo shoot. We were just passing by, having had lunch their earlier that day, and seeing Craig, congratulated him on his photo shoot. He invited us in to watch and participate in the shoot. He was so kind, so welcoming. He felt like a friend even though we had just met. My husband and I were so impressed with everything about him and his restaurant. We were devastated when we heard the news. I know he will truly be missed. He was a gift to Mississippi.
