In June, we reported that the food court at the Prudential Center closed for good in order to make way for the upcoming Italian emporium Eataly. Now we have learned that a temporary food court of sorts has been created in another part of the complex, and it includes some familiar names.
According to several social media posts (including a Twitter post from Pennypackers), the Belvidere Arcade is now home to a handful of food vendors, including Pennypackers, Sa Pa, Chicken and Rice Guys, and Wok N Talk. Chicken and Rice Guys gives a bit more information, telling us that booths are set up for the dining spots, and that it is a program through Fooda that gives patrons another option to the now-closed food court while Eataly is being built (Eataly expects to open in the middle to latter part of 2016). For now, these four vendors are open for lunch from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM on weekdays, and it is not known if more vendors will move in or if the hours might be expanded at some point; as soon as we find out more information, we will post an update here.
The Belvidere Arcade can be found by the South Garden within the Prudential Center, just west of the Huntington Arcade and just north of the entrance by Huntington Avenue and Belvidere Street.
