Manhattan's best food courts

You're out exploring the city. You're hungry. But you don't want to spend the time at traditional sit-down. Lucky for you, we're reviewing our favorite Manhattan food courts so you can enjoy a quick fix!

1. Hudson Eats
Brookfield Place, 200 Vesey Street, Manhattan
Hours: 7:00am- 9:00pm

Overlooking the Hudson river on the very bottom West side of Manhattan sits Brookfield place, a large building complex  resembles a midtown office building. Hudson Eats takes over the whole second floor with diners enjoying sweeping views of the river. Hudson Eats is a new food court with upscale dining options including Umami Burger and Blue Ribbon Sushi. Hudson Eats has a sleek, modern feel, with food covering most every genre.


2. Plaza Food Court
1 West 59th St
Hours: 8:30am- 9:30pm

This is a personal favorite of ours, one that is under the radar for most New Yorkers. This area is notoriously difficult for finding something fast; it is void of even McDonalds. The Plaza Food Court is a 32,000 sq ft complex right underneath the grand Plaza Hotel featuring everything from lobster rolls to pizza. We LOVE the fro-yo bar!


3. Gotham West Market
600 11th Avenue
Hours: 7:00am- 11:00pm
This ultra-hip market on the west edge of Manhattan is smaller than the others but is full of gourmet gems, including Ivan Ramen. Gotham West is trendy, showcasing creative culinary concoctions, like "sandwich art" shop Court Street Grocers Sandwich Shop.


4. Eataly
200 5th Avenue
Hours: 10:00am- 9:00 pm
Mario Batali really outdid himself with this Eataly. Is it a market? A beer garden? Or a cooking school? Looking to buy olive oil? You're in luck- there are aisles of options! There are several restaurants; both sit down and stand up, as well as to-go options. Try the heirloom tomato and mozzarella sandwich with sea salt and don't forget the gelato for dessert! YUM!
