Food Parc: Because Chelsea Needs Another Ginormous Freaking Food Court

Is it because food is the only thing former big spenders can afford? Because nobody actually wants to be in Chelsea, Flatiron or the Meatpacking District so there’s plenty of available space?

Sigmund Pretzel Shop: New Cafe/Blogger Office Opens on Ave. B
The hood gets a new cafe, with fairly tasty German-style pretzels, dips and pretzel sandwiches. Coffee’s decent, and while the WiFi’s unreliable, at least it’s free (and the friendly barista claims the connectivity problems are being addressed.). Hours are 10 to 10 daily or ‘til the food runs out.
Sigmund Pretzel Shop
29 Avenue B, between E2nd and E3rd.
