We're currently amidst a food hall boom in the Twin Cities as the dining trend continues to sweep the metro and, indeed, the nation.

It's been revealed on Thursday that yet another food hall will land in the Twin Cities this year, with United Properties announcing the Galley Group will open one on the first-floor of its North Loop development, The Nordic.

The Galley Group's food hall at 729 Washington Avenue, adjacent to the Freehouse brewery and restaurant, will comprise four "fully built-out kitchens" earmarked for local chefs to launch new restaurant concepts "in a low-risk, low-cost environment."

It will be accompanied by communal seating, and an "innovative beverage program" at a 22-seat bar. It's planned to open this summer.

The Twin Cities has seen several food hall-style dining experiences open in the past few years.

Keg & Case opened to much fanfare and subsequent acclaim at the former Schmidt Brewery in St. Paul last year, while the nearby Seventh Street Truck Park has also proved popular with diners.

Meanwhile Rosedale Center has received similar plaudits for its "Revolution Hall," which is changing the face of mall dining as we speak, while the revamp of the former Dayton's Building in downtown Minneapolis will come with a food hall and market curated by Andrew Zimmern.

The Nordic will be the latest to arrive in the metro, taking up residence in the mixed-use, 10-story building that will also house office, residential and retail properties.

"There is built-in demand within this mixed-use development, including residential and office components, and, along with the outdoor plaza, the food hall will solidify The Nordic as a signature destination in the North Loop," said Gordy Stofer, vice president office development of United Properties.
