I can't tell you how excited I am to find all of these under one roof (err... basement). If you haven't read my experience at The Plaza Food Hall, go check it out now below:
In the beginning of this summer 2011, in search where my favorite French little pastry shop went, I delightfully discovered The Food Hall in the lower level of the famous Plaza Hotel in New York City. I had not realized that the Plaza Hotel actually had a little shopping mall with fine food!
Entering from 58th Street takes you directly down the escalator to the shopping concourse. Behind the perfumery is Todd English's Food Hall. The place is enormous, and you can either eat around the counters or on tables with high stools.
On the left above were the lobsters and oysters on ice.
