Rumors of a food hall popping up in Houston’s theatre district have been swirling for months, and now it appears as if Lyric Center Market is officially happening.

A LoopNet listing for the forthcoming food hall at 411 Smith Street indicates that it will be modeled after “other successful international food halls such as Chelsea Market, Eataly, and Sarona Market.” It’s just the latest food hall planned for the city, joining the already-open Conservatory and the forthcoming Bravery Chef Hall planned for Aris Market Square and Finn Hall at The Jones on Main.

No details on which restaurants or chefs will be involved with Lyric Market’s food hall have been released just yet, but the LoopNet description indicates that its developers have plans to attract both local talent and “nationally-recognized” chefs that hail from cities outside Houston while staying away from major national brands. More renderings of the space can be found on popular real estate forum HAIF.

Eater has reached out for more details on Lyric Center Market and when it will make its debut.
