Something a little HAIFy about this article. No sources interviewed, and they know exactly what's been said on here.

Isn't that the new kind of journalism: don't cite your sources, don't interview people, claim the work of lesser known blogs/websites/forums as your own?

More on the food hall Finn Hall at The Jones on Main at 712 Main. From CultureMap:


Finn Hall, which takes its name from the building’s architect Alfred C. Finn, will occupy 20,000 square feet of space at the corner of Rusk and Main when it opens in mid-February. More than a name, the food hall will preserve the building’s art deco look that Finn created including its original limestone columns and walls.
 

Diners will find 10 food stands, a central bar that serves craft beer, wine, and cocktails, and over 500 seats. An upstairs mezzanine will feature a bar serving classic cocktails and the option of having servers who will deliver food from the stalls. In addition, each stand will have a few counter seats that will allow customers to watch the chefs prepare their meals.
 

[David] Goronkin isn’t quite ready to name specific vendors yet (although the Chronicle reported last week that Mala Sichuan is a possibility), but he would confirm that people will recognize the them. According to Goronkin, they range from food truck operators looking for a brick-and-mortar space to established restaurateurs, looking to take advantage of downtown’s rising status as a food destination with either a new project or an extension of their existing concepts.

Mala Sichuan in downtown is super clutch. Their dry and aromatic chicken and dry fried green beans are two of my favorite dishes in the city.

Just found this article from back in May 2017 from the Houston Chronicle saying that a new food hall is being added in the building. Set to open early next year. Looking forward to going just so I can admire the inside of what used to be Texas Commerce bank. I remember going to Texas Commerce with my mom when I was little and thinking "wow, this must be what a palace looks like", lol. Here is the link: http://www.chron.com/entertainment/restaurants-bars/article/New-food-hall-set-for-downtown-Houston-11141556.php#photo-12890948

I was under the impression this was a restoration project. This looks like they are simply building out a hall. Anyone found renderings of the inside?

The website does not say “restoration” and they just might be building new but in a certain style.

 

According to their website:

It is. From the renderings and articles on the project, I was under the impression there would be restoration and build-out for the retail, restaurant, lounge portions.

 

I haven't come across updated renderings for The Jones on Main or Finn Hall. The company operating Finn Hall, Oz Rey, may publish conceptual renderings or more information on its website next year.
