The boutique food court concept is the brainchild of Benjamin Cox, who has experience in the food and vendor industry. Benjamin worked closely with designer Ashley Adami to create the hip, clean interiors where the focus is on a market-style, communal dining environment complete with melamine trays for patrons and a tray rack.

The interesting offerings include dim sum and Eastern cuisine from Silk Road, breakfast eats from Goodeggs, burgers and other meaty eats from Pete Goffe-Wood, buffet-style salads from Sova, coffee from Café Duo, and fresh juices and smoothies from Eso Juice.
