The Galley Group, parent company of Smallman Galley in the Strip District, announced plans Tuesday to open a second signature food hall at Nova Place on the North Side. It will occupy a 5,500 square foot standalone building in a space that was once occupied by PNC Bank.

Developer Faros Properties is managing the multi-million-dollar renovation of Nova Place, formerly Allegheny Center Mall.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of Nova Place. Faros Properties has done an amazing job revitalizing the area and we are excited to provide an innovative and welcoming venue for the property’s office tenants, residents, game-day crowds, community events, and the growing tourist population in Pittsburgh,” says Galley Group Co-Founder Ben Mantica.


According to a news release, The new food hall will be reminiscent of Smallman Galley, though it won’t be a restaurant incubator. The Galley Group is promising that the Nova Place location will have some “exciting new elements.”

“We’re ecstatic to welcome Galley Group—it was very important to us to find a restauranteur that values the community as much as we do.  The new concept is an innovative dining experience that will be a huge value-add for the neighborhood,” says Faros Properties Managing Partner Elliot Gould.

More details about the new food hall are expected in the coming months.
