Another day, another new venture from Cameron Mitchell Restaurants.
CMR announced today that they will be opening a food hall in the Budd Dairy building in Italian Village, fittingly called the Budd Dairy Food Hall. According to the release, the space will host 8-10 chef-driven restaurant concepts, serving as an incubator for up-and-coming restauranteurs. CMR shares the food hall will be a hub for “young urban professionals seeking a vastly different dining experience.”
“Food halls are among the most popular, innovative ways to allow dining consumers to actively engage in their food experience, and the Budd Dairy Food Hall will be the first of this scale in the region,” said Steve Weis, CMR vice president of development. “By providing in one venue an opportunity for guests to choose among multiple, artisan food shops, instead of choosing just one restaurant, and then combining it with a strong beverage program; entertainment; and flexible, on-trend spaces to enjoy food and drink; the food hall will be a vibrant destination for residents and visitors alike.”
Budd Dairy Food Hall is in partnership with local real estate developer Kevin Lykens. It is expected to exceed 14,000 sq-ft and have a rooftop deck. Look for this new CMR venture to open in winter 2018.
