McEwen Food Hall
McEwen Food Hall features a dynamic ‘food hall’ feel with each station having a unique, chef-driven concept centered on delivering a feeling of pure food excitement—with responsibly sourced ingredients. The open-concept kitchen and bakery place few barriers between you, the food, and the chefs.
Al Dente serves authentic, fresh, fresh pasta—the kind that’s made in-house daily and cooked right in front of you. The Chef’s Counter has daily chef’s specials, so you’ll never know what’s coming next (unless you look it up, of course). Crumb & Cream’s friendly bakers offer freshly baked pastries and breads—ask nicely and they might even decorate a cupcake especially for you. Arrive early and you’ll find Early Bird Bistro serving elevated breakfast staples while Sunrise Omelet Bar fries and folds custom omelets to-order. One station even rotates its concept week to week.
Never a dull moment and always great food.
