The Zipper

Food Court

Think you're familiar with the food court format? Grow up and think again. The Zipper reimagines what the format could be, trading in your typical fast food and mall-quality Chinese for fresh concepts from leading restaurateurs. The building -- which, yes, kind of looks like a zipper, we guess -- houses four restaurants, a bar, a coffee stop and a late-night salon, all of which are situated around a communal dining room. Expect crispy falafel from ChickpeaDX, fried chicken and grape-Kool-Aid soft-serve from Basilik, roast beef po'boys from Bywater Grocery, and pizza topped with alligator sausage at Slice.
