When the city passed its controversial payroll tax break that lured tech giant Twitter to Central Market, it was banking that the move would stimulate the long-dormant area. Now, that effort is paying dividends. Delicious, delicious dividends. Here, a guide to the area's new and still-upcoming restaurants.

Already a street-food and catering superstar, Azalina Eusope will bring her Malaysian fare to Market Square’s lobby with a 45-seat restaurant that will serve lunch and dinner.

A French-inspired brasserie and bar from the AQ team, this 125-seater will be open from breakfast through dinner and will feature cocktails and sparkling wine.

The Market
