A new, unique food court for the New Yorker appetite.


A new, unique food court for the New Yorker appetite.

New York City has become home to more food courts in recent years, but rows of cookie cutter franchises have little chance of success when up against the discerning palates of New Yorkers. Enter City Acres Market. A new and different food court in the city’s financial district. City Acres Market caters to the city’s diverse and discriminating tastes with restaurants from neighboring Chinatown and specialty foods such as vegan restaurants. They are waging war on commonplace restaurant chains in this lunch district. The adjacent mini-market sells popular side dishes for workers to take home. It has even become a fun spot for tourists to sample some of New York’s unique cuisine.
