Coming-soon Harvest Hall in Grapevine announces four local restaurant concepts – The Dallas Morning News

Restaurant News

Harvest Hall, the coming-soon food hall inside downtown Grapevine’s Hotel Vin, has announced four of its seven culinary concepts ― Arepa TX, Chick & Biscuit, Four Sisters: A Taste of Vietnam, and Spuntino ― all expected to open this summer.

Each of the restaurants is already local and family-owned-and-operated, and there are a variety of cuisines. Arepa TX serves Venezuelan and other Latin dishes such as arepas, tacos, empanadas and paletas. Executive chef Mary Ann Allen’s original location on Royal Lane was damaged by the October tornado and has been closed for repairs since then. They currently do not have a reopening date for the Royal location, but Allen says, once they reopen, they hope to turn the restaurant into a sit-down place for dinner, with craft beers and wine margaritas.

Since the closing, Allen has been doing large catering events and working on other projects, including Harvest Hall. “We’re really excited about that, because we think there will be a lot of people coming through that hall,” she says. Plus, she says the operators were very selective of the restaurants. “They came and tasted at our place three times.” Her Harvest Hall location will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. “The arepa lends itself beautifully to eggs and bacon and avocado, and so do tacos,” she adds.

The Hotel Vin's food hall in Grapevine, Harvest Hall, is split into three rooms. The two larger rooms will have three or four kitchens, where customers will order at the counter and sit in communal seating.

Harvest Hall will also be the second location for Four Sisters: A Taste of Vietnam. The first location, in Fort Worth’s booming South Main Village, opened in late 2018. Expect pho, housemade noodles, and lots of other Vietnamese specialties from owner and operator Tuan Pham.

Chick & Biscuit will be the newest sibling of Mason & Dixie, a Southern-style eatery in Grapevine. There will be, yes, fried chicken and biscuits, plus pulled pork, brisket and more. Spuntino will be a spinoff location of Colleyville’s Loveria Caffe, owned by Stefania and Andrea Matteucci, former architects who develop homemade pastas and regional dishes from Ravenna, Italy.

“Finding the right mix of cuisines and the right partners has been inspiring,” said Tom Santora, managing director of both Hotel Vin and Harvest Hall, in a press release.

Harvest Hall will be connected to Hotel Vin and operated by Coury Hospitality, and is part of Grapevine Main, a $114 million mixed-use development. It will feature seven kitchens, two bars and a live entertainment venue.

Other food halls in D-FW that offer their take on the European-style dining concept include The Market at Dallas Farmers Market, which opened in 2016, and Legacy Food Hall, a three-story spot that opened in 2017 at Legacy West in Plano. But other concepts haven’t lasted long, including Americado in Fort Worth, which closed … twice, and Uptown Urban Market in Dallas.

Harvest Hall will be located at 815 South Main Street, Grapevine.

Panther City BBQ co-pitmasters Ernie Morales and Chris Magallanes prepared a Southside Slammer sandwich comprised of (from bottom) smoked bologna, brisket, pulled pork, jalape–o cheese sausage and topped with pork belly.
