Four for Fort Street

After receiving over 60 applicants, the first four vendors have been announced for Fort Street Galley, which is looking at a December opening. Located inside the Federal Reserve Building in Detroit at 160 W. Fort Street. will be Allenby, a gourmet sandwich place with a Middle Eastern spin; the Filipino influenced Isla; Lucky’s Noble BBQ, a healthy BBQ concept; and Pursue, which is being described as a Korean concept. “I wish we had more kitchens,” said Ben Mantica, co-founder of Rust Belt food hall developer the Galley Group. “The applicants in Detroit were phenomenal.” Mantica said the 8,500-square-foot food hall will have communal tables, encouraging people to share and try multiple concepts when they come. With a model based on helping concepts open their own brick-and-mortar, each of the four vendors will start with a year-long lease deal. “We try to provide a really elevated experience but in a causal format that I think will be received well in Detroit,” he said.
