Hudson Eats Brookfield Place

Manhattan has a new cafeteria-style food market in town called Hudson Eats at Brookfield Place!

In addition to Chelsea Market, Gotham West Market, and all of the outdoor and indoor food markets popping up around the city, Hudson Eats serves up delicious foods from some of the city’s top restaurants!

There are currently 14 restaurants and food venues at Hudson Eats at least three more slated to make an appearance in the near future. It was impossible for me to eat from all 14 of them in one sitting, but I was able to try four and I look forward to going back for more!

Grilled Cheese at Little Muenster 

Little Muenster, the Brooklyn-based grilled cheese shop known for making “Super Fancy Grilled Cheese” has made its way across the river. I tried the No. 3 – A grilled cheese sandwich with avocado, cheddar cheese, and lemon-oregano Japanese mayo.

I wasn’t a huge fan of this particular sandwich, but they have a lobster grilled cheese that I am dying to try the next time around!

Maki Sushi at Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar

Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar is hailed as one of New York’s best places to eat sushi, and with good reason. The fish that they use in their sushi is flown in daily from the Atlantic, the Pacific, and the Sea of Japan.

I tried the combination maki roll with tuna, fish, salmon, and avocado, and it was some of the best sushi I have eaten outside of Japan!

For more about my experience dining at Blue Ribbon and to learn what sushi really is, check out my post on With Husband in Tow!

Slow Cooked Wings at Mighty Quinn’s BBQ

Craving southern barbecue in New York? Mighty Quinn’s BBQ is the perfect place to go to get your slowly cooked barbecued meat fix!

I ate the naturally raised naked chicken wings and the meat was so tender that it came right off of the bone. Just thinking about it as I am writing this makes me drool. I cannot wait to get back to try some of their other wood-cooked meats!

Mexican Caesar Salad at CHOP’T

How do you like your salad? I know I like mine with a little flavor! If you want a little extra somethin’ in your salad, head to CHOP’T, which has been chopping up and remixing salads in New York City since 2001. Currently, the chain has expanded to have locations throughout New York City and Washington D.C.

I tried the Mexican Caesar Salad with Cotija cheese, jalapeño and tortilla chips chop’t together with romaine lettuce and it was delicious. I am no stranger to the salad restaurant chain which has become wildly popular and serves up enormous portion sizes.

Finally, one of the best things that Hudson Eats offers outside of its food is the amazing view it has next looking out over the Hudson River and New Jersey.
