Time Out says

Smorgasburg better sleep with one eye open. At 60,000 square feet, this Downtown Brooklyn operation is slated to be one of the largest food halls in the country, with 40 vendors—including none other than Lower East Side legend Katz’s Delicatessen stacking its signature deli sandwiches. Other names may look familiar: Ample Hills Creamery, Arepa Lady and Bunker all made the lineup. But also be on the lookout for purveyors debuting their first brick-and-mortar outposts, with poke at Wiki Wiki, bakery treats at Pop Cake Shop and Chinese street food at Jianbing. The massive space also hosts daily entertainment and programming, with a custom show kitchen and a stage for live concerts.

Lots of great food options as you can find something for anyone's tastes here - it's a little overwhelming. However, it's fun to take the first lap around to determine and narrow your decision down on your meal. The downside to this is the limited seating areas since you have so many restaurants and everyone coming in all at once. There is standing counters towards the back but only a limited number of table space within the ground floor itself. So the expert option is to grab your meal to-go. 

If you like Smorgaborg, Chelsea Market, or other street fairs with options - this is a great option to swing by and visit!

Food halls are competing with one another and Dekalb Market Hall is a 40,000 square feet space inside where there is a Target, Alamo Drafthouse and Century 21 at City Point. The space itself is decorated with cool art representing both the neighborhood, the borough, and the city with hints of street style. 


Like mentioned above, there are 40 vendors however it is cramped especially when there are people everywhere Despite the amount of space available, I'm not sure it was great idea to have that many vendors so close to one another. There needs to be breathing room especially since there is no natural lighting downstairs and also difficult to get cell signal. However, there is wifi if you need to access the internet. Seating is scattered throughout the hall but mostly in the back and near one of the escalators and you''ll be competing for seats if it's crowded. 


The vendors available though are a great showcase of the diversity of NYC. From the famous Katz' Deli to Brooklyn's very own, Ample Hills and Queens' Arepa Lady, there is much to eat whether you want sweet or savory. Dekalb Market Hall requires multiple visits just so you can try them all. 


Happy eating and remember: Don't deny, satisfy!
