The Hall at Ashford Lane, Dunwoody. Set to open by early December, The Hall at Ashford Lane will feature nine stalls with “a little bit of everything,” according to a representative for the project, including sushi, soul food and salad. The 17,000-square-foot space, which will seat about 400 inside and 20 outside, will also be home to three full-service bars. Guests will have the option of ordering food directly from the stalls or having a more traditional dine-in experience. The Hall comes from owner Jamal Wilson, who owns similar food hall concepts in Orlando and New Orleans, and is also working on The Hall at the Grove in Snellville.

In addition to its food stalls, the two-story, 17,000-square-foot building will feature an indoor marketplace and an indoor/outdoor event space on the second floor.
