Banc of California Stadium’s soon-to-open food hall, called The Fields, continues to staff up with big-deal chefs and restaurants. The most important new name to emerge as an upcoming tenant inside the food hall is none other than Coni’Seafood, the beloved Inglewood Mexican seafood restaurant known for its marlin tacos and whole grilled snook.
That news comes from LA Magazine, which managed to get an early roster of most of the proposed names heading into the project. Eater had previously confirmed that Burritos La Palma will be doing their signature burritos and that Otium chef Tim Hollingsworth will offer fried chicken and fries, operating under the name C.J. Boyd’s.
Ms. Chi will bring casual Chinese food from Top Chef contestant Shirley Chung from Top Chef. Australian chef Roy Ner will open Akko Port, a Middle Eastern spot with laffa rolls and falafel. Aqui es Texcoco’s Paco Perez is doing Al Pastor, a taco stand. Chef Jason Fullilove will bring Barbara Jean, a casual soul food restaurant, to the project as well.
Reps for The Fields say that LA Magazine’s list is not totally complete, and that other vendors — including the long-rumored Chris Bianco and Tartine stall — could be coming online as well. What’s more, Hollingsworth is likely still involved with a standalone rooftop restaurant to come later, with Cast Iron Partners and Legends Hospitality partnering to oversee the whole facility.
It’s also worth noting that LA Magazine’s original reporting listed the space at some 200 seats, with 90 more seats reserved for patio dining and an events area, which Eater has since confirmed. That original story, which has since been reworded, even listed Julian Cox as a cocktail lead for the project, with Taylor Parsons helping out on the wine side. Regardless, expect an opening of The Fields sometime within roughly the next two weeks.
