According to Food & Beverage Magazine, EJ Stevens Group has turned an 18,000-square-foot warehouse space at 34-39 31st Street into a foodie hot spot. The news of the food hall was originally released in 2018 but the project was put on pause for quite some time due to construction delays and COVID-19.
Now, it’s set to be fully open by the Summer!
Called World Artisan Market, the new food hall will focus on bringing a diverse selection of cuisines to one place with a handful of restaurants that will bring authentic Italian, Spanish, European, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Colombian flavors to the venue. There will even be a fully vegan spot to check out!
There are also plans for a potential microbrewery to open up in the new hall. The entire area will be broken down into 16,000-square-feet of interior space and 2,000-square-feet of outdoor dining space that’ll also feature live entertainment and even a beer garden. The venue will also include retail stores for shopping.
The newest business to open its doors is Elevenses, a European cafe and bakery with delicious pastries, teas, and coffee.
Also open is Sotto La Luna, an Italian restaurant serving pizza, pasta, sandwiches, and tasty side dishes. Arepa Lady, a Columbian restaurant that started from the famous food truck in Jackson Heights is in the works to open this May.
The final batch of restaurants are set to open within the next few months and include the following:
- Sala Astoria – Spanish Tapas, fine foods, and wines.
- Urban Vegan Kitchen – Creative takes on worldwide cuisines in a vegan format.
- Potlux – Casual high quality Japanese Crepes, Traditional Chinese, Vietnamese Noodle, and Japanese Ramen.
- Yamato Noodle Company – Japanese Cooking School focused on Japanese Noodles.
Once all of the restaurants are open they will be hosting a grand opening event.
