Details are out today about the food offerings that will be on deck--literally--at the renovated Santa Monica Place (you remember, that sad-sack mall at the foot of the 3rd Street Promenade).

Called The Market at Santa Monica place, an array of food options likened, in a smaller serving, to San Francisco's Ferry Building or New Yorks' Chelsea market, the mall will boast a third-floor Dining Deck showcasing a melange of independently-owned food purveyors joining the project's chef-driven dining concepts and fast-casual restaurant offerings, per a press release issued today.

"The Market at Santa Monica Place will include purveyors of 'foundational foods,' including meats, fish, cheeses, breads, fruits and vegetables, in addition to gourmet ingredients and prepared foods." The first three of these purveyors on board so far are: The Curious Palate, Coco-luxe Confections and Kings Road Cafe.

The renovated Santa Monica Place is slated to open on Aug. 6, 2010, while the Market will be ready to serve later in 2010 or early 2011.
