UrbanSpace Joins the Food Hall Fray

UrbanSpaceVanderbiltExteriorOver the last 30 years, UrbanSpace has been responsible for creating some of the best-known seasonal, outdoor bazaars in both London and New York, including Camden Lock, Mad. Sq. Eats, Broadway Bites and the Union Square Holiday Market.  And now, the ever-expanding company is jumping on the burgeoning food hall bandwagon as well, by debuting UrbanSpace Vanderbilt; its very first year-round, brick-and-mortar establishment.  Set to open this summer near Grand Central Terminal, the 12,000-square foot market will welcome over 20 artisan vendors and chef-driven concepts to Midtown, and here’s a sneak peek of some of the most exciting, upcoming additions!

Greenpointers_broccoli-Taco_MG_0189Tyler Kord Project: The No. 7 Sub honcho is launching a new veggie-forward concept especially for the market, which will serve legitimately craveable meatless burgers, as well as Kord’s infamous broccoli tacos.

Amali Wine Bar: In addition to its delectable farm-to-table Mediterranean fare, the Upper East Sider, Amali, is known for its award-winning, sustainable wine list.  That will be the focus of their new spot at UrbanSpace Vanderbilt, which will also serve vino-centric treats, such as rosé popsicles.  (They had us at rose popsicles!)

La Palapa Tacos: An all-taco offshoot of the authentic, East Village favorite, expect Mexico City-style IMG_4143-nggid041284-ngg0dyn-550x450x100-00f0w010c010r110f110r010t010corn tortillas stuffed with chile-rubbed pork, homemade queso fresco, grilled spring onion, pickled jalapenos, mole negro, and much more.

Red Hook Lobster Pound: What’s an NYC food market without Red Hook Lobster Pound?  And in addition to offering their beloved chowdas and rolls, the Pound will also launch a casual new raw bar, featuring locally sourced East Coast oysters, draft beers and wines.

Toby’s Estate Coffee Roasters: Featuring two custom espresso stations, Toby’s will be UrbanSpace Vanderbilt’s exclusive coffee provider, serving single-origin beans and offering specialized brew methods, such as pour-overs and Japanese drips.

oBar Suzette: UrbanSpace continues to pledge its allegiance to Bar Suzette, a six-year market veteran serving up sweet and savory Crepes and addictive Truffle Fries.

Two Tablespoons: The first permanent outpost of Two Tablespoons will provide on-the-go Midtown office workers with healthy, vegetarian options, such as Quinoa Falafel Bites with yogurt dill dip and Sweet Corn Spring Rolls with curry coconut sauce.
