Railway Heights Market Hall, the long-awaited food hall full of restaurant stalls and other local vendors, has officially opened its doors.
A representative from the Food Hall at 8200 Washington Avenue tells Eater that it is currently in the “soft-opening” phase. The dog park, beer garden and grocery store planned for the development are to follow in the coming months. As previously reported by Eater, the Food Hall has been in the works since at least 2018 and has attracted a number of locally born restaurants to its booths.
Railway Heights Market Hall is a project by Nomads Hospitality, the minds behind other Houston food halls, including the trend-setting Conservatory boasting that it was the first food hall in Texas and the acclaimed Bravery Chef Hall in downtown.
The food on offer for Railway Heights is seriously stacked. There’s Pierogi Queen, League City’s popular potato-filled dumplings destination, and BOH Slice, a pizzeria run by chef Ben McPherson. Brazilian cuisine, a place called Drunken Pho and the Japanese stand Sandos will also open in the hall, along with the spicy seafood base supplier Heads & Tails. The hall will also house several bars, the first of which is a wine bar called Puncheon. Separate spots, including a coffee bar and the SitBar Dog Park Bar, are still in the works.
In addition to the restaurants and bars, the Railway Heights Market will also be home to a variety of retail vendors ranging from Honey from Hive Bee Farm to Purum Nut Butters to a butcher shop called Legacy Meats.
At the moment, the Railway Heights covered market has limited opening times. The market hall is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursday from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Friday from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. : 00 o’clock
