This menu changes. Get the app. In May 2019, food service at The Hall took an evolutionary step. What started out as a unique marriage between food trucks and technology transformed into amazing food vendors of all types who now call The Kitchen DSM their home. These members of The Kitchen include caterers, aspiring restaurant owners, guest chefs and food truck operators.
As Iowa's only food and beverage hall, we will continue to bring you new and exciting menu offerings provided by the Members of The Kitchen. The new state-of-the-art kitchen allows all of its members to explore new levels of culinary creativity.
Eclectic, delicious and fresh, the food at The Hall will satisfy your taste buds and spark conversations. Perhaps you’ll bond over Belgian waffles? Or better yet, fall in love over pizza pies.
The menus are a little dynamic around here. Check the calendar to see who is on...
