What is your favorite lunch spot in Hudson Square?

“The deli across the street, on the corner of Varick and King Streets, Dizzy Izzy’s. I get the Times Square sandwich – the mix of turkey, melted cheese and bacon is fantastic. I have it at least once a week to make sure I have a heart attack,” he joked.

“The food vendor, on the corner of Varick and Charlton Streets. The grilled chicken pita sandwich is my favorite. It’s fresh, incredibly spicy, and he’s a nice guy so I like giving him business. He sells it for $5, which is a very reasonable price.”
Don Romaniello, 25, neighborhood dog walker
“I like the falafels the guy sells at the stand on the southeast corner of King and Varick streets. He puts eggplant in it – whatever mix he has is particularly tasty.”
As a neighborhood, Hudson Sq. is maturing
Hudson Square, which some residents believe for a long time was the dumping ground for all sorts of unpleasant uses, is becoming a real neighborhood and beginning to define itself.
