FoodParc- 09.25.10

foodparc0.jpg FoodParc just opened in NYC at 6th Ave and 29th Street ~ it’s like a high tech foodcourt of sorts, and Anna and Sean of Sub-Studio popped by to take a look for us! Of course they also tasted a bunch of food for us too.. and it sounds like quite the unique bacon-fest! From Bacon Snack and Hash browns with bacon and cheddar and onions inside to Benton’s Smoked Bacon Egg Rolls and Steamed Shrimp, Bacon & Watercress Dumplings… luckily there were also beautiful juices and flatbread sandwiches to even it out as well! “FoodParc is a serious, yet fun, accessible culinary destination. It has 4 distinctly different food and beverage concepts and a full-service bar that includes: The Press, RedFarm Stand, Fornetti, and 3Bs (Burgers, Bacon, and Beer)” The Press is you go to cafe, RedFarm Stand is an asian concept with a twist by Joe Ng of Chinatown Brasserie, Fornetti has italian salads, sandwiches, pastas and more, and 3Bs is exactly as it sounds! All housed in a 20,000 square foot indoor/outdoor, modern space ~ futurist and conceptual designer, Syd Mead (of Blade Runner, Aliens, and TRON) created the environment… and it’s no surprise that in addition to old school ordering, you can also order from all 4 restaurants at once at the self serve monitors! Take a peek at it all on the next page…

Ok ~ so now that you’ve seen the food… let’s backtrack to how we got there! foodparc.jpg

foodparc4.jpg Foodparc was conceptually designed by Syd Mead, who is also the man behind the sets of Blade Runner, Aliens and TRON. FoodParc is Mead’s first-ever permanent interior design project. Philip Koether Architects executed the actual build.

foodparc6.jpg The ordering system at Foodparc. You can order from all four restaurants in one place, all at once (Fornetti, RedFarm Stand, The Press, and 3B’s). Additionally you can order directly from each restaurant.
