“Tuesday, May 17
I woke up and made myself matcha in the hotel, then I had to go to CBS to tape the Morning Show. So for breakfast I just ate a bunch of pineapple that they had.
For lunch I went to this place called the Pennsy near Penn Station. It’s the only good place I know of to eat around there. There’s a place in there called the Little Beet. They made a really good lentil patty on top of quinoa-beet salad and soba noodles with shiitake mushrooms. It was all just one big bowl.
I’m not really sure what else I’m going to do while I’m in New York, but usually when I’m in town I’m on the hunt for sushi, and I haven’t gotten any yet. There’s also a great vegan-food scene here, so I might try and check that out.”
From Grub Street’s weekly restaurant power rankings:
” The Pennsy—Midtown’s newest multi-stalled food hall has opened next to Penn Station. There are five choices here from people like Mario Batali, Marc Forgione, and the team behind the popular Cinnamon Snail food truck. If you’re in the area, you could certainly do a lot worse for lunch.”

Grub Street announces the opening of The Pennsy.
“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.”
