The area around Penn Station could certainly use more food choices so the addition of The Pennsy with its several options for food is a welcome one. But The Pennsy is a strange place and I'm not sure I can see myself going back. My travel companion and I got food from two different vendors on our way to a train. It was a good thing we weren't planning to sit and eat - all tables were taken up by a lively bar crowd, few of whom seemed to be eating. Had we planned to sit we would have been quite frustrated. The poke bowl I got from The Little Beet was good, made quickly with fresh ingredients. The panini my friend purchased at Ribalta was only okay - a bland take on an ordinary sandwich. Prices were about what one would expect. Though it was rush hour and dinner time, lines for food were not long. We didn't wait in lines for drinks but those didn't look lengthy either. It seemed many commuters had grabbed a drink and a table and were relaxing before the train. I might swing by for to-go food again but I would not plan to sit down.
