has been renovating the hell out of its south mall in the past couple of years, and they are almost ready to unveil it. Kind of. Sort of. This past Monday was the "media launch" for Foodie Social
, after which they promptly closed for a few days. The whole project is not technically open, and some of the many brands won’t be ready until Monday, but we went and guerilla’ed our way to bring you these hot hot hot pictures of what the super fancy food court looks like so far! Try your luck! Maybe they'll let you in too!
The entrance and communal seating area.
A new pho shop with a massive machine to make their own rice noodles for soup on the spot.
Molly's Noodles, from the people behind Vesta
(they have another space as well), serving mapo tofu over noodles. But will it go viral!
A five-seat pop-up by Tai'an Table
and chef Stefan Stiller's crew — probably the fanciest food to ever spring up in a mall food court.
The ever-popular Vesta, of beer-can chicken fame.
A new Bun Cha Cha
And the slow, steady creep of Homeslice
There's more! Tons more! Click here to see the full list of tenants
