Over the course of the next year, SF is set to see no end of food halls debut, with projects planned in the Castro, South Beach, and the Twitter building. But first to the gate is the massive new The Hall, which has taken over the former Hollywood Billiards space at 6th and Market for a massive new effort to feed the burgeoning mid-Market corridor. Mayor Ed Lee is cutting the ribbon this morning, and the space will be open to the public beginning at 11:30 am. Spearheaded by Scott Peterson and Ted Wilson, with consulting help from AQ's Matt Semmelhack, the massive Hall will feature six vendors:

  • Fine & Rare: sustainable seafood dishes
  • Cassia: Moroccan-Peruvian fusion, from the team behind the Fuki food truck
  • The Whole Beast: gyros and roast beef sandwiches
  • Raj & Singh: Indian curries, available as plates or naan wraps
  • Little Green Cyclo: pho, banh mi, and other Vietnamese specialties
  • Dignitá: coffee and baked goods
The space also features a bar from Anchor Brewers & Distillers, serving eight Anchor beers on draft and a selection of wines. During happy hour, from 5 pm onwards, a dim sum cart will rove around the space, offering bites from all the vendors for just $5. Seating is communal, with plenty of picnic-style tables and chairs both inside and out; eventually, they plan to offer food from an outdoor grill as well. For now, food hours are 8 am-8 pm, with the bar open from 11 am-11 pm. And while it's a huge boon to the underserved mid-Market lunch crowd, be warned that The Hall won't last forever: it's intended as a stopgap until the space is demolished for a new apartment building, which will likely happen sometime in 2016.
