Adding to commuters’ woes during the “Summer of Hell,” Penn Station’s gourmet food hall has shut down for the next month.

Pennsy, the food hall at Vornado Realty Trust’s 2 Pennsylvania Station, shut down Sunday and will reopen on July 17. The real estate investment trust said it’s bringing in new vendors and expanding the outdoor seating area, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The 8,000-square-foot food hall, located at the base of Vornado’s 1.5 million-square-foot office building, opened in 2016. Celebrity chefs Mario Batali, Marc Forgione and butcher Pat LaFrieda are already among its better-known vendors.

Earlier this month, the first phase of the Moynihan Train Hall quietly opened on Eighth Avenue.

Also this month, Vornado and partners Related Companies and Skanska finalized a deal with the Empire State Development Corp. to complete the $1.6 billion train hall at the James A. Farley Post Office. The agreement requires $550 million from the state, $630 million from the developers and $420 million from Amtrak, the MTA and federal funds. [WSJ] — E.B. Solomont
