Ballston is the latest neighborhood to get a food hall. Quarter Market, a 25,000-square-foot dining center featuring 18 different restaurants, is set to open in the Ballston Quarter development in September 2018.
Restaurants landing at Quarter Market include modern Mexican restaurant Bartaco, sushi burrito slinger Buredo, Ice Cream Jubilee, Petworth favorite Timber Pizza Co., Nats Park concession Pinch Dumplings, Korean rice bowl restaurant Rice Crook, and Baltimore-based fast-casual eatery Mi & Yu Noodle Bar.
City Paper previously reported that Swizzler and Cucina Al Volo would also set up shop at the food hall. Nine other restaurants will join the roster when the leases are finalized, according to developer Forest City.
Press materials bill it as, “the new epicenter of the region’s culinary offerings,” though Mike Isabella might have a bone to pick with that sweeping statement. His food hall, Isabella Eatery, is currently opening in phases inside Tysons Galleria and it too has Epcot-level dining attractions.
Food halls are on the rise in the region. Rockville has two on the way—The Spot and Pike Kitchen. Annandale already has The Block.
Look for Quarter Market inside the 850,000 square-foot mixed-use development going into the former Ballston Common Mall area.
