Eateries at Moreno St. Market include Panda Express and Pokeway (now open), Stickhouse (opening this week), along with Noodle World and Boba World (opening in mid-June). The food hall will include seven eateries and two full-service restaurants when fully completed, including Crazy Crab, which will be the first full-service restaurant to open in early Fall 2017. Additional eateries will be introduced throughout the year.
