The Plaza Food Hall by Todd English The Plaza, 1 West 59th Street

Sunday afternoon-Midtown patroling’s report is here! Located in the basement of the iconic Plaza Hotel, The Plaza Food Hall has 8 different counter stations, created by chef Todd English (he owns Fig & Olive and others). Each station prepares different foods including: seafood, sushi, dumplings, noodle, pizza, tapas, pasta, bakery, and a grill station…the great thing is that any place you sit, you can order food from all the menus (not like at Eataly); so sit anywhere, but I think the seafood station counter is the best seat, so I sat there and got an up close view of all the action! I had heard some of the popular dishes are the sliders, especially the Prime Rib Slider and Fig & Prosciutto Flat Bread. We started with wine and oysters, and I thought what a great value for a good sized seafood sampler at $35. The sliders and flat bread was very good too. One mistake was the Grilled Lobster, it was so small for $21 and not even tasteful (>_<)! Oh well…it was our first time here…next time I will definitely try the grilled whole fish (the couple next to me was having a Branzino that looked amazing). There were also many great salad choices like a yummy looking Mediterranean Salad. The crowd was a mix of Foodie- Downtown and Uptown neighborhood families to International hotel guests. I’ll definitely go back when I’m Uptown, it’s perfect for an after museum drink & tapas or a hearty dinner.
