    Venders? Is that an acceptable spelling nowadays for the New Yorker
    or do journalists just type out their stories on their phones?

    I take it that a "Food Hall" is a "Food Court" minus franchises + local food services + some grocery vendors.
     
    When I lived in McLean, VA the Eastern Market and the Old Post Office Pavilion were pretty much "Food Halls".  Others were the Inner Harbor in Charm Coty and Reading Market in Philly.  Living in Dallas now that term pretty much describes the Dallas Farmer's Market.
     
    Since we left the Eastern Market burned down and, I understand, was rebuilt as a shinier version of its former self.  The Old Post Office is now The Trump International Hotel.  But, what are the finished foods' sections of Wegman's or Dallas' Central Markets but 'Food Halls"?  I would have to say that these are outrageous successes.
     
    As for Manhattan, rents would prohibit their existence just as they do supermarkets and Costco's.  You just cannot generate enough sales volume/sq. ft. to justify them, unless, of course, you can commend Todd English prices
     
    In Paris, however, both Fauchon and Hediard have expanded recently and continue to thrive in one of the highest-rent districts on earth; of course they purchased their real estate over 100 years ago.  And, steps away les Galeries Lafayette have also entered that trade; though at a slightly lower price point their offerings are still "world class".  The French certainly have their priorities in order.
     
    In sum, I  "Food Halls".
