A new food hall is on the menu for Downtown Boston, thanks to Michelin-starred chef John Fraser.

The Lineup at The Connector will open on Wednesday, Jan. 17 at 115 Federal St. with five fast + casual food options designed for folks who work downtown. Hungry Bostonians can find the food hall in the new mixed-use Winthrop Center tower off Devonshire and Federal streets.

What sets this food hall apart from other options around the city? The menu is packed with veggie-forward choices, a reflection of Fraser’s ample experience with vegetarian and vegan cuisine.

Here’s a taste of what you can expect:

  • Ariana will offer Mexi-Cali street food items. Think: burritos, bowls, and vegan tortilla soup.
  • Iris Mezze is all about Greek eats. Pita pockets will be on the menu, plus whipped feta and roasted eggplant spreads. If you have a sweet tooth, don’t skip the baklava.
  • Gatto Pazzo will have Neapolitan pizza offerings, pasta + sandwiches with fresh sourdough.
  • Big Grin will be grilling up roadside eats like burgers, chicken sandwiches, and veggie burgers. There will also a chilled butter lobster roll on the menu, which we might need to try for our local lobster roll research.
  • Day Shift will serve up breakfast sandwiches and $3 coffee — Say less.

The new lunch spot will be open on weekdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Day Shift will be there for the early risers, serving breakfast and coffee at 7 a.m.
Later this spring, the chef will focus on opening a new sit-down restaurant at The Connector. Stay tuned for more details on this new eatery.
