All of you who live/work in the Financial District, have you been to Milk Street Cafe yet? If your answer is no, drop whatever you're doing and go. Unless it's really late or you're not at work anymore, then don't...but whenever you get a chance, do it.

A little over a month ago, I had the opportunity to attend a press preview for the all new Milk St. Cafe, a gourmet food hall that calls 40 Wall Street home. The Financial District has recently been popping up with various food options, which is great for the formerly flavor-starved employees who have had to venture elsewhere for lunch. But Milk St. seems to offer a million options, all in one place.

First of all, the space is massive. At an impressive 23,000 square feet, Milk St. Cafe has more than enough room for hungry FiDi-ners. There are various areas to choose from, including 2 salad sections, fresh sushi, deli-style sandwiches, Asian specialties, rotisserie offerings, desserts and pastries, and much more.

[The space is large and airy, this is only the back of the room.]

Guests were invited to sample a lot of the food from various stations. There was a sushi chef working his magic, and the sushi was super fresh and delicious.

Milk St. Cafe has hot/cold breakfast stations, as well as a barista station.

Milk St. Cafe has it all. Everything's fresh, made on-site, and tasty. There are limitless choices and offerings. They open at 6:30 AM, in time for breakfast, and close at 9 PM on Mondays-Thursdays. On Fridays, they close at 3 PM. They offer Corporate Catering as well as delivery services. FiDi-ners, this one's for you.
