So, I’ve been hearing a lot about the recently opened Hudson East at Brookfield Place in the Financial District. It’s a food hall (which, is a fancier version of a food court) and holds some of the greatest restaurants from around the city all in one place. Most of the options are all from quick serve merchants, so, it fits really well in this type of atmosphere. So, what I’ll say is, walking around the food hall, located around lots of offices, it felt more like a corporate dining hall. But, you know, like the best corporate dining hall ever. Aside from that, I think it works well for tourists who are in the area to visit the Freedom Tower and memorial.
Beautiful seating with a view, can’t really beat that. This is the set up for most of the seating. Below is a full list of the vendors. Good luck deciding, because they all look amazing.
Black Seed, which I recently reviewed, has Montreal meets NYC style bagels.
Blue Ribbon Sushi (coming soon) serves their famous sushi from their SoHo location.
Chop’t serves made to order salads.
Dig Inn has farm to plate food, featuring their market plates, sandwiches and more.
Dos Toros is a taqueria serving fresh and local tacos.
Little Muenster makes a “super fancy grilled cheese”.
Mighty Quinn’s is serving Taxas/Carolinas style BBQ.
Num Pang, who I’ve also reviewed, is making delicious, gourmet, Cambodian sandwiches.
Olive’s provides quality, prepared foods.
Skinny Pizza makes environmentally conscious, thin crust pizzas.
Sprinkles is famous for being the world’s first cupcake bakery.
Tartinery serves their tartines, a Parisian styled flatbread made on sourdough.
Umami Burger makes their quality burgers with their special Umami Master Sauce.
Name: Hudson Eats at Brookfield Place
Location: 200 Vesey Street, NYC
The Long and Short: Would I go back? Technically, the selection is great, so, yes. However, This isn’t really an area I find myself in often, which is why I said it makes a really great stop for work people in the area, or tourists.
Would I recommend it? Yes, if this is a pit stop, it gives you a great selection of food options that everyone can enjoy. And, if the weather is nice, you can take it out to eat by the river (just right outside).
