This food hall in Hudson Yards is like a Spanish version of Eataly, with a bunch of different grab-and-go tapas kiosks specializing in things like empanadas, flatbreads, and cured meats. There are also a couple bars where you can sit and try various types of dry sherry with snacks like liquid olives (which look like olives but taste like a mix of olive juice and olive oil). Two of the best restaurants in the development, Mar and Lena, are also located here, so this is where you should plan to do most of your eating in Hudson Yards. (A third sit-down spot, Spanish Diner, isn’t open yet.)

Socarrat Paella Bar
No bigger than a subway car, Socarrat packs the majority of their patrons on bar stools around a communal table. The idea here is that they do paella the way it's done in Spain, as one big family. In such a small space, keeping the drool inside your mouth while you wait for your food is no easy task.
At Socarrat Nolita, the only way you are having a comfortable meal sitting at the massive communal table is if you have the body frame of Beaker from The Muppets. Bring a bigger group so you can sit at a real table and enjoy your delicious paella in peace.
