Are you tired of taking the train up and down the city subway lines in search of the newest and most exciting NYC eats? We know we are. Hopping on a train to go all the way downtown for some out-of-this world falafel, then heading to another part of the city for ramen and Brooklyn for the best pizza… it’s not exactly a time-saver.
We were invited to an exclusive tasting and got the low down on all the eats of the new food hall, located on the corner of Lexington and 51st street.
Greeting you, as you enter is GoFish Sushi Box, a quick grab and go sushi option with so many fresh fish and veggie options your head might spin. And be sure not to skip on the tuna wonton treat because it’s amazing!
Next stop, was Takumi Taco, a Japanese-inspired taco stand combining nachos and tacos with classic sushi flavors like spicy tuna. Also filling out the gourmet-style food court’s left side were stunners like Bob White Counter (a fried chicken-centric spot), Taim (a well-known, falafel joint with deliciously creative flavors and even cauliflower shawarma), a branch of Ippudo Ramen called Kuro-Obi, Inday Kitchen’s (Inday Go Go) serving up some great roti and Rockaway Clam Bar.
Towards the back are popular food locales like Dorado Tacos and Roberta’s infinitely delicious pizzas. And along the other end you get your choice of Bao by Kaya (with veggie and meat options available), La Pecora Bianca who’s acclaim speaks for itself, Tuck Shop (a soon-to-be-better known Aussie pot pie spot, which has flown under the radar until now), Trapizzino (pizza cones, people!), Liquiteria (gotta have something healthy to round out all that comfort food), and Little Collins, so you can wash all that down with a nice, hot brew.
As you can see, there are tons of options from some of the best places in the city and they’re all in one spot. If you work in the area, there really isn’t a better spot to grab a quick, but satisfying bite.
Additionally if you’re looking for a drink to accompany your meal, the roundabout also comes with a center bar (Top Hops Beer Shop), with options of its own, and draft beers with the choice to take some home in a growler of your own. Plus, they have a ton of seating space upstairs for big or small parties.
