Flatiron Extra: Eataly Pizza Takeout is here, Hill Country Chicken, FoodParc coming soon

Here’s a few extra bits and pieces for all the Flatiron Lunchers out there…


Italian mega-market, Eataly’s pizza may not be in ML price range, but it is now available to go. Last night Eataly tweeted that the Pizza and Pasta area now has a takeout entrance on 24th Street. Also in the twitterverse, Hill Country Chicken, which we mentioned back in July, is working the hype machine tweeting its mentions in The Times and Time Out New York. Still no official opening date, but when I called, the person on the phone said they expect to open around ‘mid-September.’ That sounds pretty soon to me.

And if Eataly wasn’t enough for you, a recent peek in the door indicates that futuristic fancy food court FoodParc (851 6th Ave) should be opening any day now. The chefs involved all tend to make food well outside of the Midtown Lunch price range, but there’s got to be something in there for us, right?  At the very least it will be open for “Carts in the Parc” the New York City Wine and Food Festival event with Andrew Zimmern, the Biryani Cart, Jamaican Dutchy, Schnitzel & Things and more.  (Tickets are still available here.)

  • you say that like Midtown Lunch isn’t part of the hype machine

  • you can get a pretty filling mozzarella and tomato topped slice of focaccia for under $3 at the bread counter. two of those and you’re stuffed. like a margherita pizza but breadier.
