Food Hall Brings New Dining Options to Downtown St. Louis
ST LOUIS, January 24, 2018 – JLL’s retail experts announced today The Eatery, a new food hall dining destination, will open for business on the ground floor of One Metropolitan Square on Monday, January 29th at 10 a.m.
Following a $2.5 million renovation of a former restaurant and common area space, The Eatery now offers a fresh, modern interior featuring Arista Gourmet, Dino’s Deli, and Kimcheese Asian Fusion. It is the first downtown location for each of the restaurants, which have hired approximately 25 new employees among them to staff their eateries. JLL is currently in talks with two additional prospective restaurants, which would bring The Eatery to its maximum capacity of five restaurateurs.
Rick Spector, senior vice president of retail brokerage, JLL, said, “We are excited to help create a platform that allowed for multiple new concepts to open in downtown St. Louis. Now workers from One Metropolitan Square and the surrounding area will get to experience the great food served by these unique restaurants.”
Nehring Design of St. Louis created the food hall’s 9,628 square foot sleek design. The space features a variety of high top, lounge, and counter seating, as well as high ceilings and windows offering natural lighting. Public wifi and power outlets at almost every table make The Eatery a perfect destination for anyone looking to enjoy a lunch break. As soon as the weather turns, a +/- 1,000 square-foot outdoor patio will open to offer additional covered outdoor seating.
The Eatery will be open from 10 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. JLL expects it to nicely complement the growing list of destination dining options located in the heart of downtown’s business district.
