The Mouth Watering Chef-Driven ‘Manhattanville Market’ Community Food Hall Opens In Harlem

After almost three years in the making, a multi-concept food hall, Manhattanville Market, opened on Friday, June 25, 2021, at the Jerome L. Greene Science Center, 3227 Broadway, within Columbia Universities in Harlem.

Open to both the university community and the general public, the “inside out” architectural feeling with large windows of the hall provides new and affordable culinary dining options for the neighborhood.



Created by Chef Franklin Becker in partnership with Columbia University, the hall will host four fast-casual dining options to start: Butterfunk Biscuit run by Chef Chris Scott, Mediterranean-inspired Shai Hummusiya, Sicilian pizzeria Benny Casanova’s, and salad concept The Botanist.

Committed to hiring staff from the surrounding area, Becker and his team are seeking to work with as many local providers, purveyors, and community culinary talent as possible.

Later this fall, a full-service Spanish tapas restaurant, Oliva, will open, bringing a full drink menu to space.

Offering a connective central hub for the Harlem community, Manhattanville Market will host seasonal bazaars for local vendors to sell their artisanal products and farm-fresh produce, as well as provide a venue for guest chefs, speakers, and pop-up events throughout the year.
