So far, you can get coffee and snacks from The Press; pasta and Italian sandwiches from Fornetti; little burgers from 3Bs; and dumplings and egg rolls at Red Farm. (You can download the full menu here.)
While the food gets a tentative thumbs up from the discerning Midtown Lunch crew, we hope that the new 'stands' branch out into more national cuisines to really live up to that "global street food-inspired" promise.
The thing that has most people buzzing so far, though, is the ordering system. We love how Fast Company's DesignCo blog sums it up best:
The concept is great. Instead of dealing with surly, pimply teenagers, you order food from touchscreen kiosks; when it’s ready, you get a text. Then you pick it up from one of four counters.
The Press opens at 7 a.m., and all other stands at 11 a.m., with all open until 9 p.m.
Have you eaten at FoodParc yet? Dig the food? The touchscreen kiosks? Give us something to talk about other than the miserable weather. Drop your review in the comments below.
