Cuisine: Food Hall


The  Deco is part food hall, cocktail bar and event space in the heart of NYC’s Garment District at 231 West 39th Street. It includes an eclectic mix of foods, including French from the Mademoiselle café; tacos from Antojitos El Atoradero, rotisserie chicken from Papa Poule, and Hawaiian cuisine from Huli Huli. There are nine vendors in all. The Deco is an ideal spot for lunch, happy hour, date-night, dinner and pre-sports games or Broadway show meetups.  The Deco’s central bar is the focal point of the food hall, with a drink menu that features New York brews, creatively themed cocktails and a wine list designed for both drinking on its own or to pair with bites from each of the vendors.

Here's the initial list of vendors:

Mademoiselle by Maman: Making its debut, Mademoiselle is the new daughter concept of Maman; the French café will have two kiosks serving coffee, baked goods, tartines and sweet treats with recipes passed down by French “mamans.”

Antojitos Caseros: Bronx- based Antojitos El Atoradero is introducing this new concept at the Deco while including the staples it’s known for- handmade tortillas and authentic Mexican recipes passed down from the owner’s mother, grandmother and aunt.

Huli Huli: Specializing in Hawaiian cuisine (from rotisserie chicken to Spam fried rice), Huli Huli makes its debut at The Deco; partners of the venture worked together at per se before striking out on their own. 

Little Tong Noodle Shop: The contemporary Chinese restaurant that gained fame after opening in the East Village two years ago, Little Tong Noodle Shop will launch its first Chinese breakfast at The Deco, along with Chinese staples like mixian rice noodle dishes that are hard to find in midtown Manhattan. 

Papa Poule: A new concept from the Maman team, Papa Poule compliments Maman with heartier fare, including French-style rotisserie chicken.

Beach Bistro 96: With its original location in Queens’ Rockaway Beach, Beach Bistro 96 brings authentic Brazilian fare (Pasteis, Pão de Queijo, etc.) to midtown with its new outpost at The Deco.

Mani in Pasta: Known for their traditional Roman style pizza, visitors can dine on an extensive lineup of pie variations (including the exclusive Pizza Deco, featuring cacio & pepe cream and truffles on an ice-baked dough) along with comforting Italian classics, including homemade focaccia sticks and potato gnocchi.

Nansense: The first rotating kiosk pop-up at The Deco, Nansense began as a food truck serving Afghan comfort food on a Chelsea street corner. After opening a successful stand at Smorgasburg, Nansense brings fan favorite dishes – including mantu (beef dumplings) and chicken korma – to The Deco.
