In addition, The Pop-Up, or “test kitchen,” will serve as a home to a rotating roster of chef-tenants that will change biweekly to monthly throughout the year. The first tenant of The Pop-Up will be Dan Sheridan and the Locale BBQ Post, with barbecue sandwiches and classic sides.

Tenants plan to hire upward of 100 new employees before the grand opening on April 18. The food hall will be open weekdays starting at 7 a.m. and closing at 11 p.m.

Imian Partners, the Connecticut-based real estate firm behind Constitution Yards Beer Garden, will manage the shared space.
