Foodhall at Crockett Row, Fort Worth’s first food hall, is almost ready to debut with an Eater Chef of the Year alum helming one of its new eateries.

The 16,000 square-foot food hall will debut the first week of December at 3000 Crockett Street in Fort Worth and has finalized its restaurant line up. Nine new vendors were just announced, which will join previously announced John Tesar’s Knife Burger, Press Waffle Co which slings Belgian-style waffles in Plano’s Legacy Hall, and Not Just Q, a barbecue joint from a former TCU football player.

Peep the Foodhall’s full list of new tenants below:

  • Butler’s Cabinet from Joshua Harmon, Eater Dallas’ Chef of the Year in 2017, is a dual deli and marketplace that will sling sandwiches topped with Harmon’s famous ferments. Diners can snag a “Deviled Belly Melt” topped with house-made American cheese and maple-miso smoked onions, or the “County Ham” with sour cherry, fresh cheese, housemade koji butter, and greens. Beverages will include “The Fig Lebowski,” a cold brew with fig-espresso syrup and the “Black Fog London” made with Earl Grey tea, vanilla syrup, and charcoal milk.
  • One of Fort Worth’s best-loved chefs, Victor Villarreal, will debut Abe Froman’s of Fort Worth, a pizza, calzone, and sausage concept. The namesake pizza will be topped with sausage, ricotta, and pear relish, plus it boasts a decadent sausage-meatball-stuffed crust.
  • Rollin’ n Bowlin’, Fort Worth’s first açaí bowl purveyor, began as a food truck and will open its second permanent location at the Foodhall (its first is on TCU’s campus). Diners can grab açaí and pitaya bowls with names like Coco Loco and Guac My World.
  • A Mexican street food concept called EB2 will feature an elotes bar with inventive toppings and a rotating menu of chile-topped fruit from Dallas chef Justin Box, formerly of Cafe Momentum.
  • Chef Brett Curtis will debut his seafood-slinging food truck The Dock at Foodhall, serving up lobster rolls, crab cake sliders topped with pesto and smoked bacon, and dynamite shrimp served with Asian slaw.
  • Shawarma Bar, a Mediterranean street food stall, will offer customizable shawarma bowls and grilled meats, plus vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.
  • Diners can snag poke bowls from Aina Poke Co. that are stuffed with marinated sushi-grade fish and topped with house-made pickles.
  • Gigi’s Cupcakes will offer both gluten-free and traditional treats including cupcakes, cakes, cookies, and more.
  • A John Tesar-branded bar, Knife Bar, will serve up craft cocktails, frozen drinks, and tap cocktails, plus wines and local and regional beers.

Noticeably absent from the lineup is Graze, a previously announced concept from Chef Grady Spears, who made headlines earlier this year for allegedly assaulting his wife. Immediately after news of Spears’s arrest surfaced, Crockett Row cut ties with the chef.

Foodhall at Crockett Row will celebrate its grand opening on December 7 and 8 with live music. It will be open Sunday through Wednesday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Thursday 11 a.m. to midnight; Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
