The Year of the Food Hall is certainly getting underway. Time Out Market, coming soon to Fenway, has already begun teasing its star-studded lineup, and now High Street Place is coming out swinging with its own initial announcement.
Opening in downtown Boston in fall 2019 at 100 High St. in a five-story atrium that connects to 160 Federal St., High Street Place will take up 20,000 square feet, accommodating 20 food stalls and 500 seats. The High Street Place team — which includes Rockpoint Group, Rockhill Management, and CANAdev, with Boston Realty Advisors working on the leasing — announced the first 11 vendors today. Buckle up:
- Dive Bar and Tenderoni’s from Tiffani Faison, who is behind Fenway’s Sweet Cheeks, Tiger Mama, Fool’s Errand, and the forthcoming Orfano: Dive Bar will be a raw bar — a “Mason-Dixon water fight,” per today’s announcement, pitting North and South Atlantic classics against one another. Think po’ boys, lobster rolls, and peel ‘n’ eat shrimp. Meanwhile, Tenderoni’s is meant to be a ’70s and ’80s throwback pizza-and-grinder joint.
- Daiquiris & Daisies from Daren Swisher and Joseph Cammarata, who were Eater Boston’s 2015 Bartenders of the Year for their work together at Hojoko: A cocktail bar featuring “creative and classic cocktails with seasonal twists.” The cocktails of the bar’s name will make appearances, of course, including a pineapple daiquiri and an amaro-based daisy.
- Haley Jane and Wheelhouse from the team behind popular downtown burger spot Wheelhouse: Haley Jane will feature fried chicken based on Wheelhouse’s existing Thursday fried chicken sandwich special. Look forward to Nashville hot, Korean-style, and Buffalo hot honey fried chicken sandwiches. In addition, they’ll have a new Wheelhouse location at High Street Place.
- The Farmacy Cafe, from a shipping container in the Seaport (formerly known as Jubali): A cafe serving breakfast toasts, rice and salad bowls, Ayurvedic items, and more.
- Fuji Sushi, from the JP Fuji Group: This will be the ninth location for the growing group of Fuji restaurants, which serve sushi and lots more. At High Street Place, Fuji will feature bestsellers from existing locations as well as some new exclusives. There will also be sake, beer, and whisky available.
- Mother Juice: This will be the fourth location for the juice shop, which is also in Kendall Square, Back Bay, and at the Boston Public Market. Expect juices, smoothies, toasts, breakfast bowls, and more.
- Noodle BOS, from the team behind Noodle Lab at Boston Public Market: Noodle and rice bowls with vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options. There will be dishes like tonkotsu ramen, curry ramen, tempura udon, and more, including Southeast Asia-inspired street food.
- Northeast of the Border: This will be the first non-truck location for Northeast of the Border, which will be serving Mexican tacos and guacamole.
- Pennypacker’s: With a food truck and a Somerville location, Pennypacker’s will expand to High Street Place with its popular porchetta sandwich as well as other sandwiches, salads, and snacks.
When High Street Place opens this fall, it will also play host to live music, book signings, and other events. There will also be a seasonal patio outdoors, and the indoor space will allow for open-air dining, weather permitting, thanks to a retractable window system.
Stay tuned for updates as the opening gets closer, and review the food hall guide for more information on other projects in development, including the imminent debut of Time Out Market in Fenway and the eventual arrival of the Beat in Dorchester, L Street Station in South Boston, and more.
