UPDATE: Tune in to our Facebook Live on our page on Jan. 7 at 5:15 p.m. for the unveiling of Harvest Hall's mural. The months-long project was designed by local artist Haylee Ryan.

The third and final phase of Grapevine Main, the long-awaited Harvest Hall food hall, is scheduled to open in mid-to-late January 2021.

Located in downtown Grapevine, Harvest Hall will feature seven local restaurants and two bars from the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area.

Grapevine Main Managing Director Tom Santora said each kitchen was chosen not only for the quality of the food offered but also for the people involved.

“We wanted to create an environment where it wasn't landlord and tenant, [where] it was more of a partnership,” Santora said. “All of those kitchen operators—we call them partners, and we're all in this together to make Harvest Hall successful.”


Many of the partners who signed on to be a part of the food hall did so more than a year ago. With the arrival of the coronavirus pandemic, many delays ensued, which forced the Grapevine Main team to think outside the box to find ways to allow these entrepreneurial chefs to still offer their food to customers.

“We took the opportunity," Santora said. "Some of the operators have food trucks, and we allowed other operators to bring their food."

Santora said food trucks were sent to different locations in town to market Harvest Hall and to bring in money for vendors to help them survive the pandemic in March and April.

A number of kitchens are expected to open in Harvest Hall in 2021, including Arepa TX, a restaurant that specializes in Latin and Mexican street food; Chick & Biscuit, a classic Southern eatery; Easy Slider Texas, a gourmet burger spot from Dallas; Spuntino by Loveria, which offers classic Italian cuisine; Mediterranean kitchen Zatar; and Monkey King Noodle Co., which will showcase northern Chinese street food. There will also be a coffee shop called Main Line Coffee Bar, Santora said.

Two bars located inside the food hall will be run by the Grapevine Main development. The food hall also sports several meeting rooms and is connected to a 38,000-square-foot public plaza.

Harvest Hall is located at 815 S. Main St., Grapevine. More information on Harvest Hall is available here.
