Hub Hall brings a selection of tasty foods to TD Garden

A sneak peak of what Boston’s newest food court, Hub Hall, has to offer.

If you haven’t been to Boston’s newest food court, Hub Hall it is worth a visit. 

Hub Hall, which recently opened in September, is a food hall located right in the heart of North Station and TD Garden and has a selection of 18 food and drink vendors.

I took a quick visit to check out what they had to offer, and as a big foodie, I was quite impressed. 

From affordable food like authentic tacos at Naco Taco to a yummy treat from Mike’s Pastry, the smile did not come off my face.

My first stop was Mike’s Pastry, where I got the famous Italian bakery’s classic chocolate chip cannoli. 

Brendan, one of the pastry chefs, mentioned how business has been booming since opening at the food court, and with a recent tennis tournament at TD Garden, crowds have been forming. 

“We have four other locations. Here, Cambridge, Somerville and the North End. It is always a hectic flow but here we are still trying to figure out what sells and doesn’t as well as what the busiest times would be. Seems as if trying to figure out clockwork,” Brendan said.

My next stop was Naco Taco, where I had the al pastor taco made with spit-roasted pork, pineapple, cilantro and onion. I definitely recommend it if you love tacos. 

“It has been two weeks since opening and business has been going really good, no complaints,” said José Campos, an employee at Naco Taco. “I’d say lunch time and the evening when it is closer to closing time, we are the busiest. I do believe it will remain busy during winter especially with the events at TD when people are going to be looking for food and drinks.”

Next I made my way to Greco, which serves a true Greek experience. There I had the delicious lamb chop plate. The customer service was friendly and the food smelled great. So, if you like some Greek food, be sure to check out Greco.

“It has been going well here… depending on the days we can sometimes be busier than other locations, our busiest time is lunch and dinner. You get to see a size in volume when there is a game or concert at the Garden,” said Renea, an employee at Greco. “For the winter I hope to see it busy, but depending on events and all, hopefully it turns out well.”

Before leaving, I had a quick beer at The Draft by Banners. There you can 24 beers on draft. They had a small wine section as well, but if you are into wine, stop by the wine bar Now Pouring. They offer sangrias, margaritas and a Moscow mule as their seasonal cocktails.

“Customers have been great, everyone has been nice with no problems and the food around here is fantastic. People are newly interested as many have passed by here seeing it being built and then put on pause because of COVID,” said Tracy, the bartender at The Draft by Banners.

Hub Hall is only a 15 minute walk from Suffolk, so after class, walk over and enjoy their selection of fine food and drinks.
