All six concepts at this upscale food court add twists to their flagship spots’ menus to create an assemblage of new, excellent iterations. Antonelli’s Cheese Shop carries their signature hand-picked cheeses plus meal options like their ultra top-notch creamy mac & cheese. Emmer & Rye’s fast-casual sibling Henbit has you covered for three seasonal squares: ham & cheese kolache, a pork loin sandwich on sourdough rye, and the killer lemongrass shrimp bowl. Bonus beverages: lavender matcha latte and golden milk latte. Contigo has a hearty menu of rotisserie chicken, wings, crispy green beans, and their beloved burger; try the egg sandwich on challah for breakfast. Ni-Komé, influenced by cousins Komé and Daruma Ramen, crafts ramen, sushi rolls, nigiri, and starters like edamame and karaage. (You might even snag a seat at the little sushi counter if you’re lucky.) Dai Due Taquería features sustainable dishes you’d expect from a Jesse Griffiths-owned establishment: wild boar al pastor, bison picadillo, and venison barbacoa. Handmade heirloom corn tortillas and fresh fruit & veggie salsas and aguas frescas round it out. Easy Tiger’s outpost has fresh baked bread and pastries, brats and a muffaletta, and house-made Chex Mix. And yes, they’ve also got that delectable pretzel with beer cheese.
