Customers crammed into Brookfield Place’s new 300-square-foot gourmet food court Hudson Eats on its official opening day, Tuesday, June 3.

It has 14 eateries including cupcake bakery Sprinkles, Mighty Quinn’s Barbeque, Skinny Pizza, and Black Seed Bagels. 

“Lines were crazy, but the options are great. You can’t beat this,” said Suneet Bhatt, 39. 

The spot has marble floors, high ceilings, vivid lighting, and tables and marble countertops for seating. The large windows provide a view of the Hudson River so customers can watch the sailboats. 

The seats were filled with people eating meals such as pizza, sandwiches, burgers, salads, and desserts. 

The outdoor brick patio, with closer views of the river, and the Winter Garden Atrium, decorated with bright lights and artificial palm trees, provide additional seating. In total, it can seat up to 600 people. 

“Very nice. Everything’s clean. Service is good,” said Mike Chin, 43. 

Hudson Eats also plans to open five sit-down restaurants in March 2015.

The food court is located on the second floor of Brookfield Place at 200 Vesey St. in Battery Park City.
