The 6 Most Insanely Delicious Things at the UrbanSpace Vanderbilt Food Court
Rosé popsicles, anyone?
The city is buzzing about UrbanSpace Vanderbilt, a massive indoor food court that just opened across the street from Grand Central Station.
Featuring dishes and snacks from more than 20 NYC chefs, the food hall presents a serious problem: How do you pick only one thing to eat for lunch?
On our recent visit, the solution was simple--we tried a dish from each vendor. (It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it.) Check out the six most delicious things we ate.
ROSÉ PUSH POPS FROM AMALI MOU
The Greek spot serves up all sorts of tasty treats (including a to-die-for kefteri dip with whipped feta), and a rosé push pop is the best-ever finishing touch.
COLD PEANUT NOODLES FROM HONG KONG STREET CART
Spicy--but not too spicy--peanut sauce drizzled on a big bed of spinach fettuccine noodles? Say no more.
REUBEN SLIDERS FROM SIGMUND’S
The artisan pretzel joint is kicking the traditional Reuben up a notch: It’s tiny, it’s packed with flavor and it’s served on a salted pretzel bun.
CHICKEN PAD THAI FROM BANGKOK B.A.R.
There’s a lot of excellent pad Thai in NYC, and while there’s way too much competition to pick favorites, this one is a solid choice for lunch.
HOT DOG WITH THE MASH FROM ASIA DOG
It’s no secret that Asiadog makes some damn good franks, and you can get beef, chicken or veggie topped with its signature combo of spicy ketchup, jalapeño mustard and crushed potato chips at this newest location.
HIBISCUS DOUGHNUT FROM DOUGH
No food coma is complete without a doughnut at the end of a meal (or in our case, meals and meals and meals). This fluffy confection, infused with Mexican hibiscus, can’t be beat.
