Located in a New York City’s Midtown West neighborhood ( on 33rd and 7th Avenue) is the latest trendy eating establishment, “Pennsy” which pays homage to meatpacking’s renown “Chelsea Market” but includes offerings from some of the city’s most upscale eateries such as The Cinnamon Snail, The Little Beet, Lobster Press, Pat LaFrieda, La Colombe, Mario by Mary (by Mary Giuliani & Mario Batali.)

Pennsy, which opened early last month, offers a varied palette of gourmet fast casual options coupled with a chic atmosphere, and plenty of indoor open seating ( 8,000 square feet worth!)

The Cinnamon Snail, the vegan hot spot which has a loyal, cult-like following was previously a food truck and it’s newest location at the Pennsy signifies it’s first foray into having a brick and mortar location. The veggie focused, gluten free destination, The Little Beet also serves up a diverse menu chock full of clean eating options such as the beet and quinoa bowl, and the lentil, quinoa, chickpea beet box.

Mario by Mary takes a gourmet spin at classic soup and sandwich combinations, while Pat LaFrieda offers hot toasted sandwiches, roasted vegetable sides and side salads. The Lobster Press redefines the traditional lobster sandwich by transforming it into a warm, freshly pressed panini. There’s even a counter serving La Colombe coffee and lattes!

Pennsy signifies a change in the area surrounding Penn Station that is known for it’s sparse to nonexistent healthy eating options. This new delicious destination has already proven to be largely popular (with long lines to prove it), so if you haven’t already checked it out, try and come before the lunchtime rush!
