Another day, another round of news leading up to Hudson Yards’ March 15th opening date. This time, developer Related Companies is whetting our appetites with details about its dining collection. We knew the basics–celebrity chef José Andrés will operate a Spanish food hall and there will be outposts of already-popular spots like Estiatorio Milos, Momofuku, and Bouchon Bakery–but we’re now getting the official restaurant names and more details on their concepts. There are also a slew of new names joining the ranks, like sweets from William Greenberg Desserts, Li-Lac Chocolate, and Dylan’s Candy Bar and some more local favorites including Citarella, Blue Bottle Coffee, Bluestone Lane, and Van Leeuwen ice cream.

In total, Hudson Yards will offer more than 100 stores and restaurants, 14 acres of public space, a 750-seat public school, offices, a 200-room hotel, and more than 4,000 residential units. The Dining Collection was co-curated by Chef Thomas Keller and Kenneth A. Himmel, restaurateur and President and CEO of Related Urban, the mixed-use division of Related Companies. In a statement, Himmel said the collection “was curated to meet the varied dining needs of the residents, employees, and visitors who will share our exceptional culinary experiences.”

The most hotly anticipated piece would have to be José Andrés’ Mercado Little Spain, a 35,000-square-foot food hall on the ground level of 10 Hudson Yards. It will have 15 kiosks serving a variety of tapas, as well as a cocktail bar and a Spanish wine bar. There will also be three full-service restaurants. Leña will serve paellas and grilled meats, “an ode to live fire cooking;” Mar is a Spanish seafood restaurant; and Spanish Diner will be an all-day, casual spot serving dishes like eggs a la Cubano, revueltos, platos combinados, and, of course, cervezas.

The majority of the foodie offerings will be at the Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards, a seven-story building that will also hold anchor tenant Neiman Marcus. Here, you’ll find Kāwi and Peach Mart from Momofuku chef David Chang. The latter will be a take-out concept serving sandwiches, kimbap, and snacks. Kāwi will be a 5,000-square-foot restaurant on the fifth floor that is the culmination of executive chef Eunjo “Jo” Park’s experiences working in high-end NYC kitchens (Ko, Daniel, and Per Se) and restaurants in Korea.

Also on the fifth floor will be Wild Ink from London hospitality group rhubarb, the same team who will operate a bar, restaurant, and event space adjacent to the observation deck at 30 Hudson Yards. This restaurant “is inspired by a chef’s travel journal – a book where recipes and ideas are jotted down and cultures collide to create original and inventive dishes.”

estiatorio Milos, “known as one of the finest Mediterranean seafood restaurants in the world,” will occupy a bi-level space on the fifth and sixth floors. The lower level will hold Milos wine bar, which will feature Greek wines and small plates. During the day, this space will operate as a Real Greek Yogurt bar with coffees and pastries. The upper level will be an outpost of the traditional restaurant, which has locations in Montreal, Athens, Las Vegas, Miami, London, and on West 55th Street here in NYC. It will have an incredible outdoor terrace overlooking Hudson Yards.

Last week, we learned that Union Square Hospitality Group‘s Danny Meyer will run a 121-seat all-day cafe on the ground floor of The Shed, Hudson Yards’ multi-use art center with a movable shell. All of these restaurant concepts will open alongside the greater neighborhood on March 15th.
