New York City has been abuzz with details about the new giant food hall shopping center complex opening in Hudson Yards in 2018: The Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards. We already know that the chef-focused gourmet food hall and shopping complex will house 11 restaurants curated by Thomas Keller (Per Se, French Laundry) and restaurateur Kenneth A. Himmel. Keller himself will be opening a classic American restaurant, but now two more chefs have joined the lineup: chefs José Andrés (Minibar and Jaleo) and Costas Spiliadis.
Chef José Andrés, known as the father of the “small plates” revolution, will be “combining his Spanish roots and signature modernist flair in his new restaurant at Hudson Yards.”
"New York City was my first entry into this great country which I now call home,” said chef Andrés. “I’m incredibly excited to join the roster of amazing talent and brands that will bring life to this dynamic new Hudson Yards neighborhood, in the beating heart of Manhattan.”
Chef Spiliadis will be opening an offshoot of his restaurant, Estiatorio Milos (with locations in New York and Las Vegas), a Greek seafood dining experience.
“My work as a chef is intrinsically connected to New York City and I am so excited to bring my newest restaurant to Hudson Yards,” said chef Spiliadis. “While Hudson Yards is a major modernization project, its roots still lie in the long established essence of a city that means so much to me.”
