My biased favorites from both categories.
Honeypig is a chain and has been in the DC area for 10 years with 5 locations throughout the DC/Balt area.

No; you two are talking about two different entities.

About us | HoneyPig Atlanta

Honey Pig Brands

Honey Pig is a common moniker internationally for Korean Barbecue restaurants.
JM is referring to the internationally renowned restaurant in Duluth, GA.
You are referring to that chain thing in DC/Baltimore.
The two are related in no way whatsoever.

got it.. I'm surprised they can use the same name without getting in trouble. Looks like the style of iron skillet bbq is the same too.

Hard to beat Houston in this category. The area I reside in DFW is no slouch in the food department but Houston wins this thread hands down.

In Korea, the name 'Honey Pig' is tantamount to the term 'Barbeque' here. You really can't trademark it.

Agreed. DFW has great food, but Houston and DC for variety here. I will say that I miss the Korean and Japanese food in Dallas. The Indian food up there is also better in my opinion though it is exception in Houston too.

This is our much smaller, original Food Hall that was built in the old stove works factory in Inman Park. It is extremely popular, sometimes a little too much so.

Krog Street Market

Houston doesn't have any food halls? They are popping up around the Dallas area
https://www.guidelive.com/food-and-d...et-legacy-hall

The Market at the Dallas Farmer's market is a fun 26,000 square foot European style food hall that's part of the larger Dallas Farmer's Market complex which continues to grow. https://dallasfarmersmarket.org/event/the-market/

There's a little one in Uptown Dallas: "Uptown Urban Market" Uptown Urban Market – Come Eat With Us

Trinity Groves in Dallas is considered a restaurant incubator (which is a really cool concept), but it has that food hall vibe
Trinity Groves – A unique variety of restaurants and shops in one location!

Legacy Food Hall opening in Plano is 56,000 square feet and part of the larger Legacy mixed-use development.
http://planomagazine.com/legacy-hall...-opening-2017/

Southside on Lamar is the closest concept in Dallas to Ponce City Market in Atlanta, both being old Sears buildings converted into mixed-use developments. But it's still not the same thing as PCM is a different concept with a large emphasis on mainstream retail and the large food hall Lofts for Rent in Dallas, TX | South Side on Lamar | Welcome:

In a study by Trulia, the New York City metro area had the greatest variety in food offerings, followed by the Los Angeles metro.
