NEWPORT, Ky. — A new food hall is set to open at Newport on the Levee in summer 2023.

The Galley on the Levee will feature four chef-driven restaurants and a bar, and the food hall will open out to Bridgeview Box Park. The food hall's restaurants will also have full-service kitchens, and visitors can enjoy their meals in first-come, first-served communal seating.

The food hall development company's website says it's "changing the way communities think about restaurants."

Galley Group began in 2015, and the company provides aspiring chefs "the opportunity to execute their own restaurant concept with a low initial investment, maximum brand exposure and dedicated ongoing support, while setting the foundation for future industry success." Other than its forthcoming Newport location, Galley also has two other food halls in Pittsburgh, as well as a location in Minneapolis.

"From Galley Bakery Square and Federal Galley in Pittsburgh to North Loop Galley in Minneapolis, talented chefs curate menus with flavors that are meant to be experienced," according to Galley Group's website. "With options ranging from modern twists on enduring favorites like pizza and chicken sandwiches to dishes inspired by global ingredients and the chefs' own heritage, guests are encouraged to order from multiple restaurant concepts to experience new flavors."
