Following in the footsteps of the Plaza Food Hall, Gotham West Market, Hudson Eats at Brookfield Place, and Berg’n, City Kitchen is a 4,000-square-foot food market at Eighth Avenue and 44th Street. It could be just what Times Square needs: Vendors include Luke’s Lobster, Whitman’s, Kuro Obi (a brand-new ramen offshoot from Ippudo, which will apparently offer brand-new noodles specifically made to stand up to takeout), Azuki Sushi, ilili Box, and Gabriela’s Taqueria. In the mood for just a snack? Dough, Sigmund’s Pretzels, Wooly’s Shaved Snow are all there, too. The official opening day is this Thursday, March 5, but take a look around in the meantime:
