We’re joining Greeley Square Park!

Nuchas will soon feed Greeley Square our signature empanadas, as well as coffee and espresso from La Colombe Coffee Roasters, and slushes by Kelvin Natural Slush Co.

We are thrilled to announce that we have partnered with 34th Street, and we are expanding to feed Midtown foodies! Together we are completing a retrofit of the food kiosk at Greeley Square Park, and will open to the public on or around November 11, the two year anniversary of the debut of Nuchas Times Square Kiosk.

In addition to our signature empanadas and Argentine pastries, Nuchas will also serve coffee and espresso from La Colombe Coffee Roasters, slushes by Kelvin Natural Slush Co., breakfast items, and some special surprises.

Following the kiosk’s capital repairs, our design team, has worked with Shanghai Stainless, the company that built Nuchas’ original food truck, to refit the kiosk’s visuals to suit our aesthetic sensibilities. With direction from the award-winning 34th Street Partnership Design team, Nuchas’ designers developed new graphics and signs, an improved lighting scheme, and a better food display.

Visitors will benefit from the addition of delicious empanadas to Midtown’s array of lunch choices, and the redesigned kiosk will itself be a visual improvement to Greeley Square Park.

Nuchas new location will be open daily 7:00am-10:00pm beginning on or around November 11.

Good Day NY: Dr. Oz

We were so happy to have Dr. Oz in the truck with us this April! We had an awesome day of filming and getting him up to speed with what we do here at Nuchas. We love the fact that we can supply a healthy alternative to the New York City food truck scene with our artisan empanadas. We bake our handmade empanadas fresh every day (instead of frying them) and always use natural ingredients. Thanks again to Dr. Oz and Good Day NY for stopping by!
