It’s been awhile since we’ve heard from 3 Green Hearts — Gwyneth Paltrow’s health-centric pop-up that debuted in the Hamptons at Tracy Anderson Studio in 2015 and has taken up residence every summer since. But quietly, this fall, Paltrow, Tracy Anderson, and CEO Maria Baum opened the first Manhattan location at 271 Church St.
Though the cafe debuted with a limited menu, starting mid-March, 3 Green Hearts will expand offerings with the opening of the flagship at 241 E. 59th St.: A 6,000 square -foot, $900 a month lifestyle club and headquarters for Tracy Anderson Studio — the fitness trainer for Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, and more— where the general public can stop in for a militantly healthy, to-go meal.
Here are five things to know about the soon-to-open restaurant.
1. The biggest thing about the Midtown space is that it actually has a kitchen, where they’ll be making items like smoothies, “chopper power salads,” “raw green noodle heaven” and “healthy” frosting shots.
2. Customers at the Church Street location are still waiting for actual food beyond pistachios, pumpkin seeds, organic bananas, and protein bars. It will arrive with the opening of the Midtown location.
3.) It’s in a former movie theater. 3 Green Hearts will be on the ground level, along with men’s and women’s locker rooms, a “curated retail center,” and a listing of class schedules.
4.) The prepared meal program will be available for pick-up and local delivery. “Each meal is designed as a healthy, fresh and organic option with weight loss and weight management plans available.”
5.) There is a selfie room. “The studio will also house a Tracy Anderson "theatre room" for members and visitors to capture their pre/post-workout photos, and easily share the snaps with friends across their social media networks.”
