Hudson Square Lunch Spot, Eet, Is Closed Like a Bad Clam

One Hudson Square’s lunchtime go-to, Eet — our own Condé Nast cafeteria — closed over the New Year and is now a catering facility. Even if the coffee was better than at Inhouse Nosh (the knish canteen in our previous office building), Eet’s market-menu pretentions and loungy mod décor (not to mention its ridiculous prices) were nowhere near as endearing. But it sure did a better job with fish than our new takeout spot, the normally reliable Just Delicious Deli — check out the three barely opened mussels and the clenched-tight clam that probably added a pricey pound or two to our deli-buffet paella. Plus, we got stuck with an inexplicably detached shell-on shrimp tail … Sure, it’s our fault for going with deli-buffet paella, but come on! We never thought we’d almost miss a place that doesn’t know how to spell the word “eat.”
