Features

When Zero Irving was still on the drawing board, it was announced that the new Union Square tech hub would include a 10,000-square-foot food hall run by Urbanspace. More recently, the food hall opened to the public on Tuesday, December 14. As part of the deal with New York City Economic Development Corporation, at least 25% of the vendors were required to be small businesses; however, about 50% may be classified as such. These include fried chicken restaurant Bobwhite Counter, GoFish Sushi Box, Italian restaurant Kid Brother, and Taiwanese stand Bao by Kaya.
The food hall at Zero Irving is the most recent to open in New York City. Not to be confused with the food courts of fast-food joints in suburban malls, New York's food halls operate independently of any retail collection or department store. They typically offer a mix of fast-casual counters, sit-down restaurants, and the occasional non-culinary retail establishment. Not only do they allow up-and-coming concepts to get their start without taking the plunge of a full restaurant, but they allow more established chefs to burnish their brands. They also have the benefit of making their neighborhoods more attractive to live in with such appealing dining options so close by.

Gourmands come from all over the city, and sometimes the world, to sample the wares of its most popular food halls. However, the following listings are located less than a mile away, allowing for a convenient option to get food to go if the crowds are too much.

Chelsea Market
Years before the High Line was conceived, another adaptive reuse project was instrumental in the transformation of the Meatpacking District. Not only did this food hall in a former National Biscuit Company factory draw new attention to this part of Downtown Manhattan, but it was also one of the leaders of the food hall trend.

Gotham West Market
Rental Gotham West is located a short distance from countless popular Hell's Kitchen restaurants and bars, but a gourmand's paradise is just an elevator ride away. Not only is it home to a number of restaurants and retailers, but it also serves as the venue for comedy nights, concerts, and viewing parties.

Eataly patio (Eataly)
Before New York had French market Le District in Brookfield Place and Mercado Little Spain in Hudson Yards, there was Eataly's first New York concept across from the Flatiron Building (it has since expanded to a second location in the Financial District). Between the extensive retail offerings and on-site cooking classes, it offers everything one needs to create the perfect Italian dinner. However, the restaurants and counters make eating out a tempting option as well.

The Market Line
When mega-development Essex Crossing was in the works, culinary offerings were a key component in making it a live-work-play destination. Not only does it include the largest Trader Joe's on the East Coast and a new and expanded home for the historic Essex Market, but one of the largest food halls in the world, never mind New York City. It is so spacious, in fact, that many of the residential buildings enjoy direct access to the myriad offerings.

Time Out Market DUMBO Time Out Market (Filip Wolak - Time Out Market)
Amidst its transition from a forgotten industrial neighborhood to a highly coveted residential one, DUMBO makes excellent use of its loft buildings. This includes Empire Stores, a coffee warehouse turned shopping destination and home of Time Out Market. It includes multiple eateries, a rooftop entertainment space, and art installations.

Dekalb Market Hall
While a Trader Joe's grocery store is part of the City Point development in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn, Dekalb Market Hall offers a 27,000-square-foot space with over 30 local and international offerings. Shortly after opening, they arranged a partnership with Brooklyn Point.

Highlights:
  • Local favorite Arepa Lady
  • Caribbean concept Fat Fowl
  • Thai-style street food at Thank You Come Again
  • The speakeasy-inspired Understudy Bar

Manhattan West Manhattan West, home of Citizens (Jakob Dahlin)
Between the popular cafes and Whole Foods grocery store, the Manhattan West development has no shortage of culinary options. However, Citizens offers an immersive experience and award-winning chefs under one roof.

Highlights:
  • Traditional Spanish tapas from Michelin-star chef Dani Garcia at Casa Dani
  • An upscale take on fast food favorites at Umami Burger
  • Contemporary interpretations of traditional Japanese cuisine at Katsuya
  • Craft cocktails at S Bar

Initially conceived by Anthony Bourdain, Urban Hawker is the first Singapore-style food hall to take shape in New York City. Chinese, Indian, Malay, Peranakan, and other Asian cuisines are on display here.

Highlights:
  • Family-run concept Daisy's Dream
  • Smokin' Joe, the first concept to bring a 100% charcoal grill to a food hall
  • Modern Filipinon concept Tradysion
  • Sweetshop Lady Wong

Tin Building
In September 2022, the Jean-Georges Vongerichten-helmed Tin Building opened in a blaze of glory. The fine dining restaurants, casual counters, and retail offerings all cater to the modern consumer. However, it is housed in one of only two surviving structures from the Fulton Street Fishmarket's heyday.

Highlights:
  • Handmade pastas and pizzas of The Frenchman's Dough
  • Speakeasy-inspired high-end Chinese restaurant House of the Red Pearl, which the >New York Post has dubbed the "breakout star"
  • Double Yolk, which serves breakfast sandwiches in the morning and champagne and caviar after 5:00 p.m.
  • The Spoiled Parrot, a sweetshop with an ice cream counter and exclusive partnerships with Jacques Torres and Fritz Knipschildt

Coming Soon — Pier 57 Food Hall
Pier 57 food hall Rendering of Pier 57 food hall (S9 Architecture)
Visitors to Pier 57's rooftop park are welcome to bring food to go from Chelsea Market (see above), but delicious dining options will soon be closer at hand: The James Beard Foundation has teamed up with developer Jamestown to bring a new food hall to the space. In addition to serving as the marquee tenant, the non-profit will run a show kitchen and help choose the vendors. Details are still under wraps, but earlier this fall it was announced that Zaab Zaab, a critically acclaimed, Elmhurst-based Thai restaurant, would be coming to the space.
