Food halls. They’re a new trend in the restaurant biz and one is finally poised to open in Dallas. The Uptown Urban Market, in the former Sfuzzi space (formerly the NAAN/weird-ass burger space), is almost ready. I happened to drive by at just the right moment to catch Jonathan Tobolosky, one of the partners and a friend of mine, on his way to his car. He offered me a quick tour. I saw the speakeasy-esque bar called the Ill Minster, which is super cool, but wouldn’t really photograph too well, and I got to walk through the kitchen and all around the hall itself. Here’s what I saw inside:
The list of the Uptown Urban Market’s vendors is pretty awesome: Fireside Pies, Sushi by Yama, La Duni, Buda Juice, Tiffany Derry’s Cupboard, The Hot Counter, Bar UP, and Ill Minster. Cool stuff and more on the way, basically.
Fast forward a couple weeks later and after waiting for permits and whatnot, I got word from one Miss Tiffany Derry that she will be opening The Cupboard for business this Wednesday, and that the rest of the Uptown Urban Market will be opening on Friday the 18th.
Until then, you can read more about the Uptown Urban Market on Eater Dallas, y’know, if you wanna.
