Even more new vendors have been added to the lineup at the upcoming Bourse food hall, set in the historic Bourse building in Old City across the street from Independence Mall. The Beaux Arts building (111 S. Independence Mall East) dates back to the 1890s. The food hall, currently under construction, takes the place of the former touristy food court, which had a shopping mall feel to it. With Sylva Senat’s Baby Buns, Bluebird Distilling, Mighty Melt, and much more, the new Bourse is a lot more exciting. It’s scheduled to open this summer.

Newly added is Abunai Poke, a Washington-D.C.-based fast-casual Hawaiian restaurant. Similar to Philly’s Poi Dog (102 S. 21st Street), Abunai started out as a food truck. The menu is all poke: build-your-own bowls and several suggested combos, like the Spicy Salmon with masago, avocado, spring mix, seaweed salad, nori, and chili pepper aioli.

Also from D.C.: Rebel Taco from Social Restaurant Group, which has a bunch of bars and restaurants in the D.C. area. Rebel Taco is a new one for them.

Philly’s Menagerie Coffee is opening an outpost at the Bourse. The original is in Old City.

For another drinking option, there’s tea at Pureblend, based in West Chester, Pennsylvania.

Those four join these previously announced vendors:

  • Baby Buns: Sylva Senat of Maison 208 (and a Top Chef competitor) and Uri Pierre-Noel are serving sliders, fries, and frosé.
  • Mighty Melt: Stargazy’s Sam Jacobson and Mighty Bread Co.’s Chris DiPiazza team up for the ultimate grilled cheese sandwiches.
  • Prescription Chicken: This is the first brick-and-mortar location for the soup seller out of D.C.
  • Mi & Yu Noodle Bar: Head here for several types of Asian noodle bowls — ramen, udon, pho — plus steamed bun sandwiches.
  • Pinch Dumplings: The name gives it all away: This spot serves Chinese dumplings that are pinched.
  • 3rd & Ferry: The Easton-based eatery will serve lobster rolls, oysters, crab cakes, and other New England-style seafood at the Bourse, plus alcohol.
  • Ka’moon: The crew from the Taza Truck in Easton bring Halal Egyptian fare into Philly.
  • Scoop DeVille: Ice cream from the folks that have been blending ice cream with every mix-in imaginable since 1989.
  • Chaat and Chai: Anney Thomas is cooking up Indian street food in the new food hall.
  • Grub House: Relocated from South Philly, Grub House is known for its breakfasts.
  • Bluebird Distilling: Phoenixville’s distillery brings cocktails and bottles to the Bourse.
  • Chocodiem: Also out of Easton is this fancy chocolate shop.
  • Olive With A Twist: Stop here for cheese, pate, charcuterie, pasta, sauce, and olive oil to take home.
  • Vera Pasta Co.: This is where to get made-to-order pasta dishes, packaged pasta to take home, and Italian wines.

The Bourse is the fourth food hall for Philly. Chinatown Square opened its doors last year. Franklin’s Table just starting serving on the University of Pennsylvania campus this month. Reading Terminal Market beat them all by opening 125 years ago.
