US Open kicks off on Aug. 31, but tennis fans in New York City will be able to taste the flavor of the Open beforehand with the first-ever US Open pop-up restaurant at Grand Central Terminal.
The restaurant will go up at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 12 inside Vanderbilt Hall until the early afternoon, and will feature food from U.S. Open chefs Richard Sandoval (Maya, La Biblioteca) and Tony Mantuano (Spiaggia, Bar Toma).
All the food will be free, and will include the Open’s signature lobster roll; Mantuano’s tomato bread with serrano ham; Sandoval’s chopped salad with chayote, jicama, tomato, and shredded chicken tinga from Maya; and Hill Country Barbecue’s chopped brisket sliders. Chef Mantuano himself will also make a guest appearance.
Lavazza will be serving free premium iced coffee and evian will provide complimentary water bottles to those in attendance. Coca-Cola will also be on-site for their “Share a Coke” activation that allows fans to create two personalized cans.
Anyone who visits the event will have the chance to win prizes at the pop-up, can have their picture taken with a replica US Open trophy, win an assortment of prizes and receive an exclusive Ticketmaster discount code to buy tickets.
