Inside the Already-Mobbed New Midtown Food Hall

Urbanspace’s new Midtown East food court has 16 vendors

Despite New Yorkers having a plethora of food halls to choose from, yesterday’s addition of Urbanspace at 570 Lex has already proven popular. The food hall at 570 Lexington Avenue at 51st Street brings 16 vendors to Midtown East in a large space with ample seating on the second floor.

NYC falafel favorite Taïm adds its third location in the market, while Lower East Side Roman pizza pocket spot Trapizzino adds its second. Other food items include fried chicken, tacos, sushi, acai bowls, and meat pies, with regulars such as pizza from Roberta’s and ramen from Kuro-Obi keeping everything grounded. The full vendor list is below; it’s basically a clone of Urbanspace’s other full-time market, but a robust crowd has nonetheless shown up.
