Hell's Kitchen
Once devoid of gourmet-grocery options, Hell's Kitchen got a one-two punch in 2013 with the opening of both Brooklyn Fare and this block-long food mall. The 15,000-square-foot retail-dining mecca is divided into eight culinary stalls—such as Blue Bottle Coffee, and Brooklyn Kitchen—as well as a full-service NYC Velo bike shop. The food court includes Ivan Ramen Slurp Shop, where the noodle guru offers his famed shio, shoyu and chili-sesame varieties; Little Chef, the salad offshoot of Caroline Fidanza's Saltie sandwich shop; and El Colmado tapas bar from Seamus Mullen (Tertulia). Each stall has communal tables, with garage doors opening to sidewalk seating outside El Colmado and the Cannibal's cocktail-and-charcuterie post.

It's a good thing this place is in an awkward location, otherwise I'd be tempted to drop in for lunch several times a week. Got a group that just can't agree on what to eat? This high-end food court combines American, Mexican, Asian and Spanish cuisines under one roof, each serving separate menus at counters along the walls. Secure one of the picnic tables (there's lots of seating inside as well as on the patio), then set out in search of whatever you're craving. The vendors will give you a buzzer so you can wander until your food is ready. Favorites include the classic burgers from Genuine Roadside, tortas from Choza Taqueria and the wacky breakfast ramen from Ivan Ramen. Grab your own craft beers from the fridge at The Cannibal and don't forget to cap your meal with a scoop (or three) of mind blowing ice cream from Ample Hills Creamery (the only place to get it in Manhattan!)

Gotham West Market is a diamond in the rough and has a little bit of everything. The burgers and sandwiches at Genuine Roadside don't disappoint, El Comado has delicious tapas, and if you have any room left over, stopping at Ample Hills Creamery for homemade ice cream is a must! You can't go wrong with any flavor they make, but try the "Hell's Kitchen Sink" concoction of salty and sweet. All of this variety is available in a bright, casual atmosphere that gives anyone in far West Midtown neighborhood an awesome haven of some of the best food the city has to offer.

Almost everything I've tried here is top notch - totally unique and special food. The ice cream, the ramen, the sandwiches are all amazing, but I would especially recommend sitting at the window if it's nice out and getting tapas. The tapas I had became one of the best meals I've ever eaten in the city. They also have an interesting wine selection (including wines on tap) that is great. The only thing I would skip at GWM is Genuine - totally overpriced and not that tasty.
