Danny Meyer, the New York City restaurateur behind Shake Shack, Union Square Cafe, and Gramercy Tavern, to name a few of his establishments, is in talks to open a giant food hall — more than 40,000 square feet — at Hudson Yards.
The upcoming 52-story tower at 10 Hudson Yards, on the West Side of Manhattan, recently snagged a deal with Thomas Keller for a “classic American” restaurant. Keller will also provide consultation for 11 other restaurants that he promised would form a “dynamic group, at different price points with ethnic diversity.”
Details on the potential project by Meyer remain scarce, though Crain’s New York points out that Hudson Yards developer Related Companies purchased stake in Union Square Events — the catering arm of Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group — three years ago, and has always intended for the company to be involved with Hudson Yards.
Meanwhile, Washington, D.C.-based chef José Andrés has also been named in connection with Hudson Yards, though the chef has not released specific details.
