As part of his dining takeover of Grand Central Terminal, which also includes Scandinavian dining room Agern and its next-door sausage stall Danish Dogs, Noma cofounder Claus Meyer unveiled Great Northern Food Hall, a 5,000-square-foot marketplace inside Vanderbilt Hall this week.
The hall is divided into five Nordic-inspired food pavilions. Grain Bar serves house-made granola, parfaits and porridges in the morning, segueing to savory grain dishes and craft beers in the evening. The vegetable-focused Almanak offers salads, smoothies and snacks. Meyers Bageri produces pastries (vanilla-cream Danishes, cinnamon swirls) and breads (rye croissants, hearth-fired flatbreads). Brownsville Roasters pours a seasonally-changing coffee program, and Open Rye features a rotating selection of smørrebrød, Danish open-face sandwiches, built with house-cured meats and fish. There’s also a bar, stocked with small-batch spirits and a large selection of aquavit.
