New Penn Food Hall to feature popular local eateries

November 3, 2017

Penn is bringing an array of local eateries to its new Food Hall at 34th and Walnut. In June 2017, the University announced that the former Moravian Food Court at 3401 Walnut Street would close to make way for a modern food hall populated by high-quality, small-format food and beverage operators.

The new food options will satisfy meat eaters and vegans, organic juice lovers and ice-cream fans alike. Five out of seven popular local eateries signed on for the new Penn Food Hall: Goldie, Kensington Quarters, Pitruco Pizza, Little Baby’s Ice Cream, and the Juice Merchant. 

The new food hall, which will accompany several other new restaurants on Penn’s campus opening this winter, is designed to represent the University’s new strategy and vision for retail.

“We would like for shopping and dining at Penn to be a destination experience,” Ed Datz, the university’s executive director of real estate, said in a press statement. “We are continually enhancing our mix of eating, shopping and service retailers to provide variety and quality to our community and neighbors who are here every day, but also to be attractive to those who want to visit for that celebration meal or weekend outing.”

The Penn Food Hall is a 10,000 square foot space with planned capacity for 174 indoor seats in a communal dining atmosphere. It is scheduled to open in early 2018. It will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days per week.
