The Final Mile


If there is an architectural expression of New York’s current obsession with food, it is the food hall. Combining elements of the enclosed public markets of the 19th century with the food courts of the 1970s, today’s food halls constitute, as one writer observed, “the most significant development in restaurant real estate this decade.”

Open House New York invites you to explore the design of today’s food halls to consider what they can tell us about how we eat–and live–now. Food hall tours of Eataly, Berg’n, Le District and Gotham West this winter, will explore the design, function, and management of these spaces as part of OHNY’s year long series The Final Mile: Food Systems of New York.
