Readers have been asking us to sleuth out the concept behind The Market Hall, which posted signage at the base of the Strata apartment building on Market, where Tom N Toms coffee opened its first outpost earlier this year.
It's a new project from LA-restaurateur Tony Riviera, who has another eatery, Caffe Primo, slated to open in the East Village.
Eater SF has the details on The Market Hall's flagship store, scheduled to open there later this year as a "grocery and specialty foods emporium with a strong prepared foods focus à la Eataly or Dean & DeLuca". The upscale grocery, which reportedly comes with a full-service restaurant component, also plans to expand to Dallas and Seattle.
The Market Hall is San Diego is scheduled to launch in Fall 2014.
