Little Italy Food Hall Announces All Vendors For Summer Lineup

Little Italy is on fire. The Little Italy Food Hall, the highly anticipated project opening adjacent to the Piazza della Famiglia in Little Italy, is adding to the heat.

The project of San Diego-based hospitality group, Grain & Grit Collective, has announced their complete food vendor lineup for this summer.

At its center, guests will discover The Bar at Little Italy Food Hall, a welcome addition to Little Italy’s thriving nightlife and cocktail scene. Offerings will include a mix of local draughts, lagers and ales along with an assortment of wines, including an exclusive selection of organic Italian imports. The bar menu will also include local spirits, bitters and liqueurs used to create Italian-inspired craft cocktails emphasizing refreshing, innovative flavors designed to complement available cuisines.

Once opened, the food hall will include six stations, plus a bar, set amidst a design paying homage to Little Italy’s maritime past, an adjacent patio in addition to the Piazza della Famiglia’s 11,000-square foot space, and a mobile outdoor chefs’ area featuring pop-up cooking demonstrations and opportunities for guests to come, be entertained and learn.

The final two food stations making the cut are:

Mein St. Asian Kitchen

Created by the team behind Zen Modern Asian Bistro in Carmel Mountain, this new concept will offer a variety of Asian cuisine comfort foods with highlights including house made dumplings, succulent wings
and refreshing Honey Boba Milk Tea.

Single Fin Kitchen

Executive Chef Antonio Quindere, who has worked with celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa and Michelin-starred chef Jeff Ramsey, created Single
Fin Kitchen to share his take on traditional Donburi, a Japanese dish of seafood, vegetables or other ingredients simmered together and served over rice.

They’ll join:


This refined, Milan-style pizzeria will replicate the paper-thin crust pizzas made popular at its flagship location in North Pacific Beach, and will serve high quality Italian cold cuts and cheeses that guests can opt to pair with The Bar at Little Italy Food Hall’s varied wine selection.

Not Not Tacos by Sam the Cooking Guy

Television personality and cookbook author Sam Zien claims that “the last thing San Diego needs is more Mexican inspired tacos, especially from a Jewish guy from Canada,” and thus
debuts his eclectic mix of “tacos” filled with unexpected ingredients like meatloaf and pastrami.

Roast Meat & Sandwich Shop

New elements of this artisanal sandwich shop’s Little Italy location will include antibiotic and hormone free rotisserie chickens cooked fresh throughout the day alongside roasted potatoes
and vegetables, plus build-your-own Superfood Salads packed with essential nutrients and farm fresh vegetables and herbs.

Wicked Maine Lobster

With a mission to provide each guest the most authentic Maine lobster shack experience possible, this New England-inspired eatery will proudly convey its heritage through highlights such as Maine lobster rolls, lobster mac & cheese, clam bake and shrimp baskets, chowder and more.


The Hall is Hiring!

In preparation for its opening, the Little Italy Food Hall has also launched efforts to fill fifty employment positions within the hall, with roles ranging from security and janitorial staff to servers, bartenders and management. Hiring will begin at end of May; further job details will become available on their website in the coming weeks.

We can’t wait for opening day!

See you there!
