The new upscale food court Hudson Eats is opening Tuesday, June 3, to lots of deserved (foodie) fanfare.
The complex inside Brookfield Place at 200 Vesey Street is massive, first of all, with tons of seating, at marble high-tops and comfy booths. And it’s also got gorgeous views of the Hudson—and a roster of tenants who make very delicious things.
The downside? Healthy eaters will only have a few restaurant choices, despite the long list of acclaimed restaurants.
Even with the growing category of “healthy fast casual” lunch spots in New York City, whole food and leafy green options are limited here. There’s organic protein-and-sides eatery Dig Inn, known for its careful sourcing and seasonal options, and Chop’t, which makes a damn good salad (minus the organic part). Oh, and Skinny Pizza, which makes pizza served without artificial ingredients and fewer calories (and less flavor), and which just feels like a waste when it comes to eating a bread-and-cheese meal.
What it’s heavy on is foodie-fave tenants, like Umami Burger, Mighty Quinn’s BBQ, and Num Pang Sandwich Shop. And Sprinkles, for afternoon cupcake cravings. Which means Juice Press may do a brisk business when it opens a block away. —Lisa Elaine Held
