Hub Hall to Open within The Hub on Causeway Development in Boston

Last fall, it was confirmed that earlier plans for a new development had been given the green light for the old Boston Garden space near North Station. Now we have learned that the complex will include a food hall.

According to a Twitter post from @BostonTweet, Hub Hall is planning to open this winter within The Hub on Causeway, with the Patina Restaurant Group website indicating that there could be 18 dining and drinking options there while the Delaware North site says that there will be 19 options for food and drink. Earlier, we had reported that restaurants such as Apizza and Guy Fieri's Tequila Cocina were being planned for The Hub on Causeway, and a sign is also shown out front for a place called Banners Kitchen & Tap according to both Boston Tweet and a tweet from @ConciergeBoston, though it is not known if any of these will actually be located within Hub Hall.

The address for Hub Hall is 80 Causeway Street, Boston, MA, 02114.

[August 21 update: A message sent to us indicates that Apizza will indeed be within Hub Hall, though Guy Fieri's Tequila Cocina is not a part of it, and while Banners Kitchen & Tap is not located in the food hall, either, it will have a staircase that can be used to access it.]

[September 16 update: Eater Boston states that three familiar names are among the first ones announced for Hub Hall, as locations of Sullivan's at Castle Island in South Boston and Monica's Mercato and Mike's Pastry in the North End will be coming to the space.]

[September 20 update: Boston Magazine gives three more names coming to Hub Hall, including two familiar ones in the immediate Boston area--Cusser's, a casual roast beef and seafood shop in downtown Boston that is affiliated with the more upscale Mooncusser Fish House, and The Smoke Shop BBQ, a trio of restaurants operated by Andy Husbands. In addition, Sauce in Andover will be expanding to the food hall as well, though unlike the original which focuses on ribs and wings, the new location will focus on burgers.]

[September 30 update: According to a press release, three more dining spots have been announced for Hub Hall, including GreCo, a Greek restaurant in the Back Bay, the Seaport District, and (soon) Downtown Crossing; Boston Soup Company, a soup place run by Chef Marc Orfaly of Navy Yard Hospitality Group (Pier 6, ReelHouse, Mija Cantina); and Juicygreens, a juice bar and cafe in Jamaica Plain that features salads, bowls, toasts, cold-pressed juices, and smoothies.]

[October 10 update: An article from Eater Boston mentions that three more names have been announced for Hub Hall, including a retail outlet of Medford-based Bianco & Sons Sausage, a location of New York-based Taco Dumbo, and an outlet of Caffe Nero.]

[October 21 update: A press release mentions that three more places have been announced for Hub Hall, including ReelHouse Oyster Bar, which is an offshoot of ReelHouse in East Boston and Quincy; Now Pouring Wine Bar, which is a new concept from Patina Restaurant Group (the group behind Hub Hall); and The Draft by Banners, a beer bar that is an offshoot of Banners Kitchen & Tap, a new restaurant and sports bar adjacent to Hub Hall.]
