At long last, Grapevine’s much anticipated food hall is finally set to open this weekend.
Harvest Hall announced the opening date — February 6 — with a whole host of eclectic restaurants, serving up everything from sliders and fried chicken to Chinese street food and Mediterranean bites like shawarma and falafel. The food hall was initially supposed to open in the summer of 2020 but was likely delayed by the coronavirus and economic downturn.
As Eater previously reported, the first-named restaurants for the food hall were Arepa TX, dishing up made-to-order arepas, tacos, empanadas and rice bowls; Chick & Biscuit, which will offer fried chicken in a variety of styles as well as barbecue dishes like pulled pork and brisket; and Sputino, from the minds behind Loveria Cafe, which will serve homemade past and lasagnas as well as regional dishes from Ravenna, Italy.
Adding to that lineup are Easy Slider, a burger joint that will make its buns and sauces fresh daily; Monkey King Noodle Co., a Northern Chinese street food destination that has been in hardcore expansion mode recently; and ZaTar, a Mediterranean restaurant that will off hummus and falafal platters alongside lamb kebabs, zatar pies and shawarma on a spit.
Harvest Hall, which is built in the style of grand 19th century train stations, will also host two bars — a main bar at the center of hall where guests can sit to enjoy their meals with a drink, and Third Rail, a more intimate bar that will eventually host live music and comedy performances. Outdoors, Harvest Hall connects to a 38,000 square foot public plaza which will host concerts, festivals and more. Overall, the food hall and plaza are part of Grapevine Main, a $114 million mixed-use development that also includes a 150-foot observation tower, Hotel Vin, a 120-room boutique hotel, and the City of Grapevine’s Visitor’s Information Center.
Harvest Hall’s hours will be Sunday through Thursday from 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., and 6:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
