The World Financial Center had three separate lunchtime culinary events on Thursday.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the EAT World Financial Center Restaurant showcased more than a dozen of the building’s eateries in the Winter Garden, each selling tastes of their signature dishes for $5 or less.

The Grill Room offered a shrimp and vegetable stir-fry for $5, SouthWest NY will dish out pulled-pork sliders, two for $5, and Devon & Blakely sold a blackened chicken sandwich for $4. For dessert, Financier Patisserie offered a black and white mousse cake for $3, while Godiva Chocolatier will sell two chocolate-dipped strawberries for $5.

Thursday also marked the return of Ed’s Lobster Bar and Quality Burger, the food kiosks by the North Cove Marina that drew long lines when they debuted last summer.

This year, Ed’s will bring back its $15 lobster roll, $6 grilled shrimp skewers and $2 grilled corn on the cob, while Quality Burger will offer freshly seared cheeseburgers for $5.25 and loaded-up chilidogs for $3.75.

Within the next couple of weeks, a third kiosk will open: Fatty ‘Cue, an outpost of the popular Williamsburg barbecue joint by the same name.

Giant Restaurant and Oyster Bar Coming to BPC’s Pier A


NY Eater
by Amanda Kludt

Harry and Peter Poulakakos, the owners of practically every restaurant and chain in FiDi and Battery Park City—including Financier Patisserie, Adrienne’s Pizzabar, Harry’s Italian, and Ulysses—have signed a deal with the city to open a giant restaurant and entertainment complex on the renovated and restored Pier A, located between Battery Park and Battery Park City. The complex will hold a casual restaurant, oyster bar, coffee shop, and visitors center on the first floor and a fine dining restaurant and event space on the second floor.

The city awarded the Battery Park City Authority $30 million back in 2008 to restore the crumbling 125 year-old Lower Manhattan landmark, and when completed, it will also include enhanced waterfront access, 30,000 square feet of public plaza space and a 12,500-square-foot public promenade.
