Van Aken District’s Market Hall has been closed since mid-March with the exception of Brassica and Scorpacciata Pasta Co., which offered curbside carryout.

The Market Hall will return to life on Monday, June 1, when all food and drink vendors reopen for business with the exception of Doug Katz’s chutney.b., which will re-open on June 3. That includes Banter, On the Rise, Rising Star Coffee and Craft Collective.

Those indoor eateries will join Michael’s Genuine, which recently reopened with curbside pick-up and delivery. The current menu is pared down to a handful of appetizers, salads and those amazing wood-fired pizzas. Beer and wine also are available for take-out and cocktails will be added soon.

Van Aken District also just announced that the area's main thoroughfare, Tuttle Road, will be converted to a pedestrian-only seating area. As a Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area (DORA), the District allows patrons to purchase alcoholic beverages in bars and restaurants and consume them anywhere within the zone — open-container laws be damned.

Also, as reported here, Garden City, a rooftop bar with food, will open on June 11.
