This fall, downtown St. Louis will be home to a food hall when The Eatery opens its doors in the One Metropolitan Square skyscraper. Real estate and investment firm JLL announced the news in a release this summer, and the owners of the skyscraper are investing $2.5 million to renovate a former restaurant and ground floor common areas into a mass dining area.
The overall vision was to create a space where downtown office workers could find a variety of quality restaurants to choose from while eating together in a shared space. The Eatery plans for most vendors to be food-related; Arista Gourmet Salads & Flatbreads, Dino’s Deli and Kimcheese Asian Fusion have already signed as tenants at the new space.
Nehring Design, a St. Louis architecture and interior design firm, created The Eatery’s sleek, modern interior and connecting 1,000-square-foot outdoor patio. The space will have many windows for open natural lighting, modern interior lighting fixtures and high ceilings. It will also be outfitted with USB outlets and WiFi connection to create a better lounge experience for customers.
