Now that the high-end food hall wave is nearing a crescendo (seriously, people, we’re running out of space!), it’s time to take stock of a few of the gems within them. There are farm-to-table treasures everywhere at Boston Public Market; globally inspired fixings at Bow Market; Italian delicacies at Eataly; and gems from award-winning chefs at newcomer Time Out Market. Meanwhile, High Street Market is readying to open at any moment, and the 18,000-square-foot, liquor-licensed space will boast 22 vendors and no fewer than 500 seats. All together, there’s now a deluge of scrumptious pickings out there, doled out by vendors from humble to haute, as fine dining spots use the halls as a way to expand their footprints. Here are some of the most scrumptious dishes to zero in on.
