A new food hall is coming to Boston this winter, and already the lineup is looking delicious.
Patina Restaurant Group on Monday announced some of the vendors that will be featured at the new food hall, and some of them hail from just a few blocks away in the North End.
A statement from Hub Hall officials said that the 16,000-square-foot space will feature “local favorites, international cuisines, health-conscious foods and indulgent dishes,” and will host restaurant partners “ranging from beloved Boston brands to new market entries, as well as totally new ventures and concepts from notable chefs who are nationally and internationally known.”
One other quick thing to note: Banners Kitchen & Tap, a sports bar opening mid-October, and Guy Fieri’s Tequila Cocina are planning to open as part of the Hub on Causeway development, but are not part of the food hall.
Not all 18 vendors for Hub Hall have been announced — nor has an exact opening date, other than “this winter” — but in the meantime, here’s a running list of who has been tapped to open in the food hall, in alphabetical order.
APIZZA is a New Haven-style pizza concept from MIDA chef Douglass Williams, according to Globe food critic Devra First.
Douglass, according to a profile penned by First earlier this summer, is one of Boston’s only black male chefs working in fine dining, and perhaps the only chef-owner. Before MIDA, he worked at Radius and Michelin-starred restaurants in New York and Paris, among others. MIDA recently won “Best Pasta” in Boston Magazine’s annual “Best of Boston” awards.
“Today MIDA is thriving, with a friendly local scene, all-you-can-eat house-made pasta on Mondays, a bar where strangers soon become fast friends, and a menu where nothing costs more than $26,” First wrote.
Lily P’s is a fried chicken joint from chef Chris Parsons of Oyster Club, according to First.
A hotspot for tourists and locals alike — known as much for its long lines as its delicious desserts — the iconic purveyor of cannoli and other Italian baked goods will open up shop inside the food hall, Hub Hall officials announced Monday.
Hub Hall officials called it a “must try” tradition in Boston.
“Be sure to get your sweet tooth fix by stopping and getting one (or two!) of their famous cannolis,” they wrote on Instagram.
The popular North End deli known for its sandwiches and specialty grocery items is sure to please those who are looking for a fresh sub.
“Their beloved Italian sub is crafted from freshly sliced prosciutto, salami, mortadella, provolone, lettuce, tomatoes, balsamic, olive oil, and cherry peppers on a roll,” Hub Hall officials said in Monday’s statement.
“Trattoria di Monica and Vinoteca di Monica are two of the neighborhood’s best restaurants — unpretentious, lively, reliable,” Globe food writer Kara Baskin has previously said of the sister spots to Monica’s Mercato. “Yes, this place is so popular that there’s an amusement-park style turnstile in front of the deli counter. Do not try to push through it before your time, lest you end up uncomfortably pressed against the derriere of a hungry patron in search of an Italian sub (a Monica’s special).”
Sullivan’s Castle Island
The iconic South Boston hot dog stand that also slings lobster rolls, ice cream, hamburgers, crab cakes, and clam chowder is slated to open in the beer hall.
“Sullivan’s Castle Island, a South Boston landmark, has been family-owned and operated since 1951, providing locals and visitors with quality beach food at reasonable prices,” Hub Hall said in Monday’s statement.
The eatery is also known for something else among locals: Each year, the opening of Sullivan’s marks the unofficial start of spring for many people who live and work near Castle Island.
Hub Hall organizers said on Instagram that Sullivan’s will give customers “a taste of New England summer all year long.”
“This Boston staple is the place to go for quality seafood,” they wrote.
