The ultimate Spanish trifecta in New York
CHEF brothers Ferran and Albert Adria will be making their American debut in New York next year in a partnership with fellow Spaniard and star chef Jose Andres that will see the opening of a sprawling Spanish food hall.
It’s a collaboration between three mighty culinary titans that will bring the best of Spanish cuisine to New York in the form of a sprawling 35,000sq ft space.
Set to open in late 2018, the indoor and outdoor food hall will be located at the base of 10 Hudson Yards and is pitched as “the ultimate gathering place celebrating all things Espana.”
10 Hudson Yards is a 52-story office tower in Manhattan’s West Side, the first tower of the Hudson Yards redevelopment project billed as “the new future of New York” that is expected to consist of 16 skyscrapers containing more than 12,700,000sq ft (1,180,000m sq) of new office, residential and retail space.
The all-day dining destination sounds similar in concept to Mario Batali’s Eataly franchise, Italian marketplaces that feature counters, cafes, restaurants and purveyors of gourmet Italian delicacies.
Similarly, guests at the Spanish food hall will be able to tuck into tapas or wood-fired paella, and buy everything from Spanish jamon and olive oils to wines and other assorted delicacies.
“We have long wanted to find an official way to create magic with José, and now we have it and can’t think of a better way to debut in America,” said the Adria brothers in a statement.
Calling Ferran his mentor, Andres said the project marks a dream come true for the chef, who has dreamed of opening a restaurant in New York since he arrived in the United States at the age of 19.
“I cannot wait to tell the story of Spain to my adopted home of America in this iconic new neighborhood,” he added.
Hudson Yards is slated to become New York’s hottest new dining destination. Along with the ultimate Spanish trifecta, the area will also be home to new restaurants from David Chang and Thomas Keller.

Petit Crenn in San Francisco, serving a seafood-forward, family-style menu is inspired by the chef’s mother, grandmother and their home in Britanny, the northern coast of France.

The one dish that has been on the Atelier Crenn menu since day one and has been given to every diner since: a Kir Breton amuse bouche that is an aperitif of apple cider with crème de cassis, presented as a little sphere.
By framing sea urchin with liquorice on one side and yuzu on the other, Crenn says the dish draws on the complexity of French cuisine and the delicacy of Japanese cuisine in a simple and gratifying composition.
