ALEXANDRIA, VA. - John Currence, a James Beard Award-winning chef with four restaurants in Oxford, Mississippi, has signed on for a new restaurant planned for a renovated Old Town Alexandria warehouse.

The warehouse, at 10 Duke St., is being renovated by Alexandria, Virginia-based developer Murray Bonitt and will operate as a market and a casual dining restaurant where Currence will be the chef de cuisine.

The theme and menu for the restaurant have not been set.

Currence, a New Orleans native, runs City Grocery in Oxford, which opened in 1992. Oxford is home to the University of Mississippi. His other restaurants are Snackbar, Boure, and Big Bad Breakfast.
