The Plaza Food Hall Expands
Those whose appetites have been whet by the
Todd English Food Hall
in the Plaza hotel are in luck: the entire concourse level of the New York City landmark now houses freestanding purveyors of food and fine goods.
, the 40,000-square-foot Plaza Food Hall boasts antique mirror columns, custom mosaic flooring, and a 6-by-15-foot living green wall of tropical plants with variegated leaf and flower colors which will change with the seasons.
Each shop retains its own identity while sharing a common series of reference points, including the shopping arcades of Paris and traditional European food halls. Many of them have created items exclusive to the Plaza, such as No. 7 Sub’s “The No.7 Club” sandwich. The Lady M cake shop—for which Beers designed a floating counter of white lacquer on polished metal legs—has devised a Chocolate Banana Mille Crepes Cake. Foodies can rejoice while sitting in comfort at Sushi of Gari, serving hopper, cup, and vegetable sushi sets; the French bistro Tartinery, offering burrata, charcuterie, soups and salads; and Burke in a Box, a new concept from the celebrated chef David Burke.
Visitors can work off those delights by perusing the exclusive tabletop and home entertaining items at Town and Country Living, or take a little of the living wall home with them with a bouquet from Gramercy Flowers, the oldest flower shop in New York City.
