Fort Worth Food Hall Crockett Row Gets a New Name and Major Revamp
Crockett Row, Fort Worth’s first food hall, has reopened after a brief closure with a new look, a new row of restaurants, and a new name – it’s now known in Crockett Hall.
The grocery hall at 3000 Crockett Street in the Fort Worth Cultural District first opened in late 2018 but has been in turmoil in recent months due to the coronavirus pandemic. It closed in mid-March under the social distancing measures of Texas Governor Greg Abbott, and the anchor restaurant Cork & Pig Tavern, which was struggling to turn for takeout, closed for good shortly afterwards, according to NBCDFW.
After the takeover by restaurant designer B. Russo Designs, the 16,000 square meter space was redesigned over a three-month period to facilitate social distancing and take-away meals. These include several flexible indoor and outdoor dining spaces, extended terraces and free facilities including Wi-Fi and workspaces.
Eleven new restaurants have joined the Crockett Hall range, including Polly’s Pot Pies, which serves sweet and savory cakes made with ingredients like Texas peach and fried chicken and mushrooms. and Cheeseapalooza, which focuses on sticky, calming dairy dishes like macaroni specialty and cheese bowls, grilled cheese, and queso. There are also four original restaurants in the hall, including the Mediterranean street food Fave Shawarma Bar and Aina Poke Co., with a total of 15 restaurants.
In addition to these interior changes, Crockett Hall now also offers free street and garage parking with validation and has partnered with ChowNow on delivery. In addition, guests can place orders on the Crockett Hall website, which features a comprehensive menu from all 15 restaurant tenants.
Crockett Hall is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
