Posted at 8:29 AM, Feb 18, 2016

Expo Market is an upscale food hall opening in the Market Arcade complex, at 617 Main Street, Thursday at 11 a.m. The unique dining space features six different restaurants.

When you walk in to the open dining space through the front doors you'll see Newbury St., Sun Roll and GBGB. If you walk down the ramp towards the back you'll find Crush Juicery, Mercato and Bobby Alfman's.

"We have a lot of options here," said Ashley Druar the general manager. "It's for everyone. Someone can grab something quick,  they can sit down and eat, or they can come in with large groups."

Sinatra & Company Real Estate was behind turning the idea of Expo into the real thing.

"Ultimately this space is 7,600 square feet," said Matt Connors the Vice President of Development fro Sinatra & Co. "It's a large footprint on Main Street. Previous restaurants have had limited success so we decided to chop it up and really create and exposition of multiple restaurant vendors."

The open concept of Expo extends all the way to the kitchen. Five of the restaurants share one large kitchen in the center of the complex.

For GBGB and Crush Juicery business hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. The remaining vendors will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
