Danny Meyer, the master of Shake Shack and a bunch of well-known restaurants, is reportedly looking to open a gigantic food hall paradise in one of the shiny new towers springing up at the Hudson Yards development -- way over on Manhattan's far west side. Crain's reports Meyer is eyeing a 40,000sqft street-level space at the base of the 10 Hudson Yards. To give you an idea of how big that is, an NFL football field is 48,600sqft, goal line to goal line. That's quite large.
Meyer hasn't confirmed the plans, but apparently he's "close" to nabbing up the spot, according to the report. Should it actually happen, the food hall would be oh-so dangerously close to an endless stream of millions of slow-walking tourists -- literally steps away from the entrance to the High Line near 30th St and Tenth Ave, where the 52-story building is rising. So far, there aren't any details on what to expect at the possible chow down destination, but we're hoping there's at least cheeseburgers (dare we say the Shake Shack kind?), great cocktails, barbecue, and plenty of space to stuff it all into our faces.
