Halo at the Wells Fargo Center, a food-hall-esque complex in DTLA’s Bunker Hill district, at 330 S. Hope St., Monday announced—by way of Developer Brookfield Properties—five planned restaurant tenants.
It is the first batch of tenants announced for the under-construction project.
Danny Boy’s Famous Original Pizzeria, a new eatery from Meatball Shop Co-Founder Daniel Holzman, will bring pizza slices, sandwiches, and more, to Halo.
Trejo’s Tacos and Coffee & Donuts, both from Danny Trejo’s restaurant group, is also headed to the culinary-focused development.
East Coast burger chain Shake Shack has also inked a deal to open in Halo.
Lastly, Green Thing, a new dining concept from We Have Noodles’ Darren Sayphraraj, will offer a “refined casual eatery” highlighting modern, Asian-inspired dishes, including housemade noodles, dumplings, covetable salads, and rice bowls.
“What was once a closed-off, 9-to-5 food hall for 1000s of tenants, will now be the public gathering spot, a meeting place to grab a bite, a drink, or a coffee before or after visiting the cultural institutions of Grand Avenue, where currently there is nothing to eat beyond high-end restaurants like Otium, or office building chains like Subway,” a Brookfield Properties spokesperson in an email Monday told What Now Los Angeles.
Halo is on track to debut early-2020 with eateries opening later in the year.
The reimagined glass-covered atrium will include quick-service eateries, a full-service indoor-outdoor bar, and “dynamic” sit-down restaurants.
Patina Group’s Nick + Stef’s Steakhouse is already open in Halo as the restaurant existed ahead of the renovations.
In addition to its restaurant offerings, Halo will host free events and open itself up to the community as a meeting and eating spot within walking distance of Walt Disney Concert Hall, The Broad, MOCA, The Music Center, Grand Park, and more.
As part of the new project, landscape architecture firm GNN is re-envisioning the outdoor space at Wells Fargo Center with newly designed entrances, corridors, and seating areas, all intended as “a green and welcoming relief from the urban expanse of Bunker Hill.”
