What are the Fast Food Options at Hudson Yards Mall?
Even though a lot of the restaurants at Hudson Yards aren’t exactly the most pocket-friendly places to eat at, Hudson Yards mall does a great job of bringing your New York City classics to the public. There are fast food options as well. Even though fast food has a stigma of not being healthy, the food industry has done a great job being aware of that. Here are some of these casual food spots:
- Shake Shack
We don’t really need to say much here. Shake Shack is considered one of the best burger spots in all of NYC.
Another popular food establishment in NYC. Sweetgreen serves amazing salads and sandwiches with ingredients being delivered every morning to ensure quality products.
It’s a family-owned gourmet market that sells quality products. There’s also a hot buffet and a seating area to grab a quick bite.
There are many more options within the mall and these are just some of them.
New York is known for many things and one of them is fried chicken. There is probably no better place in town than Fuku. So if you’re a fan of fried chicken, you’ll love Fuku at Hudson Yards mall.
Hudson Yards Food Hall
Even though the Hudson Yards mall is filled with a roster of well-known chefs, arguably the biggest talk in town is the Hudson Yards Food Hall, Mercado Little Spain. Chef José Andrés decided to basically create a Spanish version of Eataly. Also, what’s amazing about this is that he’s opening up multiple eateries in NYC. It’s the epitome of the “go-big or go-home” mentality.

Being a photographer and creative in general, New York City, I think is the perfect place to be. I moved to NYC from Boston in 2013 and never looked back. Loving New York has given me the opportunity to do what I love and share those images with you all.
