Free Foods on 45th Coming September 10th
Vegan and raw food enthusiasts of Midtown, your prayers have been answered. Chef Matthew Kenney, formerly of Pure Food & Wine, is about to open his organic fast food outlet “Free Foods NYC” on 45th btw. 5+6th. Unfortunately, the “free” doesn’t refer to price (I’m guessing it’s actually going to be pretty expensive), but the fact that all the food is organic and sustainable, with raw, vegetarian and vegan options to boot. Think gussed up Generic Midtown Deli.
Don’t worry meat lovers, there will be plenty of options for you. According to the NY Sun the “specialty sandwiches, soups, and salads [will also feature] grass-fed organic beef, wild Alaskan fish, and organic free range chicken”. To get a general idea of what they may be serving, check out the Free Foods NYC catering site, which has been servicing offices and events since July from their headquarters on the Upper East Side.
They are shooting for a September 10th opening date, but from the looks of the place this morning (photo above)- I’d be surprised if that happens. I’ll keep you updated…
