New York is now bursting with high-end food courts, and the latest development is the Pennsy, which opens today at the corner of 33rd Street and Seventh Avenue. The space is home to five choice concepts: the Cinnamon Snail, the first stand-alone location of the defunct vegan food truck; Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors, with made-to-order sandwiches and raw meats and burger blends; Mario by Mary, a soup-and-sandwich shop from caterer Mary Giuliani and Mario Batali; Lobster Press, which will offer salads, bisques, and paninis from Marc Forgione; and the Little Beet, an outpost of the veggie-focused, gluten-free restaurant. Plus: There’s a bar, an indoor dining lounge, an outdoor patio space, and an event space, and the Pennsy is open seven days a week, for lunch and dinner. Take a look at the space and menus:
