Surprise, surprise: Here’s yet another food hall update. The forthcoming Hub on Causeway development, opening in the West End this year, adjacent to TD Garden and North Station, announced three more vendors for its food hall — the so-called Hub Hall — today. Fast-casual Greek restaurant Greco (a growing local chain), Jamaica Plain juice bar Juicygreens, and a soup shop from chef Marc Orfaly of the Navy Yard Hospitality group will all open at the hall this winter.
Greco’s Hub Hall location will be its third or fourth, depending on how opening timelines shake out. It currently has locations in Boston’s Back Bay and the Seaport District, with a downtown location slated to open later this year. The restaurant is best known for its gyros and its loukoumas, which are essentially Greek doughnuts.
The menu at Juicygreens in Jamaica Plain consists of cold-pressed juices, salads, smoothies, toasts, and bowls, and it’s entirely vegan. Juicygreens is owned by husband and wife team Ammy and Michael Lowney, who opened the original location in 2018.
While the other two vendors are existing restaurants already, Boston Soup Company is new, coming from Marc Orfaly of Pier 6, Reelhouse, and more. It will include Orfaly’s takes on shrimp gumbo, pho, clam chowder, and other soups.
These vendors join a list of several others that have already been announced — Roman- and New Haven-style pizza from Douglass Williams of Mida; North End standbys Mike’s Pastry and Monica’s Mercato; casual Castle Island hotspot Sullivan’s; North Shore-style roast beef shop Cusser’s; growing local barbecue chain Smoke Shop; and burgers from an Andover-based shop called Sauce. Ultimately, there are expected to be 18 vendors, so keep an eye out for more details soon.
Along with the food hall, the overall development will have some other dining options. It will feature a restaurant from Guy Fieri, an event space, a music hall, a movie theater with a bar and snacks, and a 25,000-square-foot bar called Banners Kitchen & Tap, which will offer customers the opportunity to play virtual golf in one of its Topgolf Swing Suites. The bar will also feature 60 beers on tap, an absurdly large television, and a cocktail list designed by local cocktail guru Jackson Cannon (Eastern Standard, the Hawthorne).
