Hudson Eats, New York City
The long-awaited food court at Brookfield Place is set to swing its doors open on June 3rd, bringing a slew of gourmet eats to Battery Park City. Designed by AvroKO, the 35,000-sq.-ft. space will house 14 vendors, including mini-chains Dos Toros and Num Pang.
To eat there: Even a brick-and-mortar in the East Village hasn’t stopped the lines from growing at Mighty Quinn’s Smorgasburg stand, and this brand-new kiosk will serve all of their fan favorites, such as fatty, melt-in-your-mouth brisket and massive Brontosaurus beef rib. Umami Burger also continues its East Coast takeover with a second location here.
To take on the road: Black Seed - the Montreal-meets-Gotham bagel shop from Mile End’s Noah Bernamoff and the Smile’s Matt Kliegman - is quickly expanding with an outpost at Brookfield. Don’t leave without a bag of their wood-fired rounds and creative homemade spreads.
What’s next: In addition to Le District, a high-end French market, six freestanding eateries will roll out by spring 2015, including an outpost of Parm and Iron Chef Jose Garces’ first New York City project.
