Whole Foods Bryant Park Opens Saturday

New location to feature outposts of prominent local chefs and restaurants.

Whole Foods

The transformation of the retail scene in the Bryant Park neighborhood continues this Friday when Whole Foods opens for business across the street from the park. The grocery chain’s newest outpost is located at 4 Bryant Park, on Sixth Avenue between West 41st and 42nd Streets.  

“Bryant Park is known as one of the highest pedestrian traffic areas in the U.S., and Whole Foods Market will add an exciting breakfast, lunch, dinner and shopping option for the area’s residents, commuters, office workers and tourists,” the company’s press release states.

The New York Times reports that many prominent local chefs and restaurants will operate outposts in the 2-story location, including Frankies Spuntino, Seed & Mill, Maria Loi, Harbor Bar, Simit & Smith, and more.

The store, which occupies 36,000 square feet, joins a growing number of health and fitness-oriented street-level stores that have flocked to the area in recent years. The chain will mark the opening of store with a “bread-breaking ceremony” at 8:45am on opening day, this Saturday, January 28. We welcome this successful business to the neighborhood, and wish it a long and prosperous run here.
