A new, all-hours food court will arrive next year on one of our favorite eating blocks in Chinatown, replacing eclectic emporium Shanghai Bazaar. City Paper reported this month on the development, from restaurateur Kenny Poon (Tango, Ken Shin Asian Diner, et al.), which will aim to stay open around the clock. (Not all restaurants will be open at all times, but there will be some options to choose from no matter when you show up.)

Philly.com notes today that three restaurants are signed on so far, promising Thai, American, and Japanese food, and a total of eight dining options should be available by the time it opens. The first floor will house the eateries, leaving the second floor to serve as a seating area. Poon tells Philly.com he's aiming to debut the food hall in February.
