With an abundance of fashionable foodie establishments staking their claim at new shopping center Brookfield Place, it’s going to be hard for residents of Lower Manhattan to find good reason to eat in. While the promise of beautifully-appointed kitchens in new luxury developments, like Battery Park City’s 212 Warren Street, certainly hold great appeal for buyers moving to the area, the lure of Brookfield Place’s incomparable dining options may prove too strong for even the most dedicated home chefs.

When Brookfield Place’s $250 million renovation is complete, it will deliver two full floors of both casual and formal dining options, with new occupants, including popular Blue Ribbon Sushi, making homes inside the complex. While Brookfield Place has already earned plenty of acclaim for its 35,000-square foot dining complex, Hudson Eats, with its 14 food counters and dining space, is also taking a page from the Parisians, creating a 37,000-square foot French-inspired marketplace, as well. Dubbed “Le District,” this oversized gourmand’s paradise will be one of the development’s main draws, with food sales figures projected to hit $160 million in the first year alone.
