The Pennsy
Venue says Vegans, omnivores, pescetarians, gluten-free, and everything in between — we got you.

Commuters, Midtown office workers and foodies alike know the Pennsy has their dining needs covered. The 8,000-square-foot space located above Penn Station hosts five restaurants, plus a La Colombe Coffee Truck and a bar. The Cinnamon Snail serves up vegan burgers, sandwiches and bowls like their Thai barbecue tempeh sandwich ($9.94), while The Little Beet offers a completely gluten-free menu. Think a miso chicken bowl with brown rice and veggie slaw ($11.94) and a salmon poke nori roll ($10.33). Chef Marc Forgione’s Lobster Press serves more indulgent fare, like a bacon, lobster and tomato sandwich ($25) and lobster mac and cheese ($13). Carnivores will want to check out the black angus steak sandwich ($15) or maple-glazed short rib platter ($15) at meat purveyor Pat LaFrieda. Mario Batali’s Mario by Mary has the Italian options covered, serving up such crowd-pleasers as an eggplant, ricotta and tomato panini ($11.02) and a truffle honey grilled cheese ($9.19).

The Pennsy has some big chef names under one roof near penn station. You really can't go wrong with any of the choices there. It's pretty much a fancier food court. You will pay up though for those big names. They do have seating for each restaurant in the form of comfy couches with a few high top tables. It can get crowded, sp you may have to fight for a seat, but the space is huge so just try to avoid peak hours.Visit if you can't decide what to eat and want to peruse in one place !

The Pennsy is incredibly convenient if you happen to be nearby for, well, pretty much anything related to MSG or Penn Station. If you're a commuter, an office worker, or just somebody who really needs a drink - you'll love how close by the Pennsy is. The space tends to get crowded quickly, but the drinks are reasonable for Midtown (even if they're nothing to write home about). The best part of the Pennsy is the permanent Cinnamon Snail outpost. The line is much shorter than the food truck's ever was!

Let’s face it, the area around Penn Station is by no means desirable and the food choices in Madison Square Garden are pretty limited and unhealthy. Good thing there is The Pennsy! This 8,000-square foot space is located right above Penn Station and next to Madison Square Garden. With choices like seafood, vegan, and American cuisine, there is something to please everyone here. The maple mustard tempeh sandwich from the Cinnamon Snail is a delicious and hearty vegetarian sandwich on spelt bread with roasted garlic aioli, tomato, onion, and kale. Finally, some healthy food choices to have before your event at Madison Square Garden.

While there's a lot to dislike about Penn Station, The Pennsy is not one of them! In the popularity of food halls, this one is definitely worth a visit! I was able to stop by after work and enjoyed a Pennshattan at the bar before a hearty meatball sub from Mario by Mary aka the collab between Mario Batali and Mary Giuliani. Other vendors include local favorites like Pat LaFrieda, The Little Beet, The Cinnamon Snail, as well as coffee by La Colombe. If you're in need of a drink before a show at MSG or a bite to eat before a train ride, check this place out!
