Food Halls have become all the rage in Manhattan over the past couple of years. They have arrived with one purpose: to provide a diverse culinary experience for the millions of people who inhabit our cherished island. Which ones, however, are the best of the best when it comes to the kinds of food they provide? Read on for our top 4 food halls in The Big Apple.
The Pennsy Food Hall: 2 Pennsylvania Plaza
The Pennsy Food Hall is a great example of convenient location mixed with delicious food. It happens to be located outside of two major landmarks in Manhattan: Madison Square Garden and Penn Station, so there is consistently a ton of foot traffic happening outside and inside. The space, is still brand new to the area that surrounds it, provides a ton of delicious culinary treats from sandwiches at Pat LaFrieda Meats to an assortment of tasty rolls at Sabi Sushi.

Urbanspace @ 570 Lex: 570 Lexington Avenue
Once again, convenience in terms of location is major when it comes to dining in NYC. Urbanspace @ 570 Lex is located right outside the 6 train stop at 51st street, making even the fussiest of commuters keep quiet until they are inside and dining on some magical food creations. Two new spots that have opened up inside include Empanada Papa and Taiwanese restaurant Zai Lai. Yum. More info here.
City Kitchen: 700 8th Avenue
For the theater goers and people who love the area of Times Square, then City Kitchen is for you. Located inside the gorgeous Row NYC Hotel, City Kitchen’s set up is truly one that is fun to look at while you try several of their fabulous vendors like Luke’s Lobster and Whitman’s (try their Peanut Butter and Bacon burger!).

Gotham West Market: 600 11th Avenue
Hell’s Kitchen was in dire need of a food hall that brought all of its culinary wonderments that they excel in individually under one roof. Gotham West Market was that answer. The design inside Gotham West is whimsical and fun as you find yourself walking around its gorgeous location to see what they have in store for you and your taste buds. Everything from the tasty ramen at Ivan Ramen Slurp Shop to the sushi burritos at Uma Temekeria and so much more make this spot a must-try when you are in the area. More information here.
