New York City: Hudson Eats, the fancy new food hall in downtown’s Brookfield Place, just opened its doors last weekend. The verdict is in: it’s amazing, and about to get even better. With 13 different eateries set up all under one soaring roof, it’s certainly a welcome new addition to the neighborhood and especially good news for families.
Le District, a large French Market offering the best purveyors of fresh cheese, meat, pastries, candy and coffee will open in the coming months as well as an outpost of the Torrisi brothers’ Parm, plus a full service restaurant by Philadelphia’s Iron Chef Jose Garces.
When to Go
Hudson Eats is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Opening hours are:
Monday-Friday: 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Sunday: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Beware the lunchtime crowd — with all the offices nearby, expect long lines beginning at 11:15 am on weekdays
The space features food kiosks from Black Seed Bagels, Mighty Quinn’s Barbecue, Num Pang, Olives, Skinny Pizza, Sprinkles Cupcakes, Tartinery, Chop’t, Dig Inn, Dos Toros, Little Muenster, Umami Burger and Blue Ribbon Sushi (opening in July)
Why it’s Great for Kids
The sleek space is huge and completely stroller friendly — and six hundred communal seats means never having to wait long for a table. Self service means you’ll pick up your food right away and can leave at any time. Parents can enjoy a glass of wine with their tartine or pint of beer with their BBQ while kids will love noshing on Sprinkles cupcakes — all with lovely views of the Hudson River and the marina. We call it a win!
Hudson Eats is located within Brookfield Place at 200 Vesey Street.
