Finally, a Penn Station destination we can get behind. The space that once housed the cornerstone Borders bookstore has undergone a wondrous transformation at the hands of culinary deities Mario Batali and Mary Giuliani in collaboration with fan favorites Franklin Becker of The Little Beet, Marc Forgione, and more. 300 seats fill the sprawling space, complete with a house bar (hello, happy hour) along with vegan food truck Cinnamon Snail’s very first brick-and-mortar location, as well as a carnivore’s dream in the form of a Pat LaFrieda stall in the mix. Anyone else looking forward to arriving early for their next train? Contact your Attaché for menu picks and further details.
