Ensconced in the beautiful beaux-arts Vanderbilt Hall, this airy food hall has upped the ante for food in New York's grandest station terminal. Pull up a stool beneath the glamorous chandelier and enjoy a glass of wine, Danish beer or artisan coffee. Gourmet bites on offer mesh Nordic flair with New York produce. Hours differ for individual kiosks.
The hall is the brainchild of Claus Meyer, the New Nordic rock star who co-founded Noma in Copenhagen. The fare is mostly soups, salads, hot sandwiches and smørrebrød (Danish open-faced sandwiches) such as curried herring with egg yolk or roast beef with pickled onions. The hall also serves breakfast (8am to 11am weekdays, 10am to 4pm weekends) and brunch.
