Manhattanville Market, a chef-driven food hall on Columbia's rising West Harlem campus, is almost here.
The glossy new dining destination is set to open to the general public this Friday, June 25 inside the Jerome L. Greene Science Center at 3229 Broadway and W 130th Street.
Created by chef Franklin Becker, the market will kick off with four food options: Butterfunk Biscuit, Mediterranean eatery Shai Hummusiya, square pie stand Benny Casanova's and salad spot The Botanist.
Oliva, offering Spanish tapas and a drinks menu, is still to come, opening sometime in the fall.
Seasonal bazaars featuring local vendors and produce are also on the horizon.
The airy space is on the ground floor of Columbia's four-year-old science building designed by Renzo Piano, featuring dramatic views of the elevated tracks.
It will offer indoor and outdoor seating, plus takeout and delivery. Hours are 11am to 7pm.
