A Temporary Food Court Is Popping Up in the Prudential Center

Pennypackers, Chicken & Rice Guys, and more are on hand to feed lunch crowds in the wake of the old food court's demise.

In late June, the food court at the Prudential Center shut down to make way for the eventual glitzy opening of Eataly, a three-floor extravaganza of Italian dining and shopping. The loss of the food court included a number of fast-casual lunch options, like Cheeseboy, Regina Pizzeria, and Boston Chowder Co. To fill the void, a temporary food court has popped up. Hours, menus, and vendors are available here.

The current line-up includes Pennypackers, Chicken & Rice Guys, Sa Pa, and Wok N Talk. They're set up in the Belvidere Arcade section of the Pru, notes Pennypackers, whose stand is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday to Thursday. The company, which also operates a food truck and a Magoun Square restaurant, is shutting down its restaurant for a few days this week, probably until Thursday, to get into a proper rhythm with the new Pru stand.
