  • The Plaza Food Hall  
    Todd English, the celebrity chef behind more than a dozen acclaimed restaurants all over the United States (and on the Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2 cruise ships) has opened a European-style food hall in the lower level of The Plaza. Groceries, prepared foods and even cheese from New York's own Murray's are available for purchase. Those looking to have a meal here will find separate stations for seafood, pizza, dumplings, sushi, and burgers and sandwiches. Prices linger in the reasonable range, especially for this level of quality and luxury. And since it's The Plaza, even simple dishes get a fancy twist—there's a Kobe beef burger and fig-and-prosciutto pizza. But one of the biggest hits is Curly Cakes cupcakes, a product of English's daughter, Isabelle.
