Smorgasburg Will Open August 19

The good news, via Eater: Smorg Square, as Smorgasburg’s two-year location in Hudson Square is being called, will open August 19. The bad news is that it’s now just Friday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. (9 p.m. on Sunday), and not other weekdays. According to Eater, we can expect “ample seating for 120 people, a full bar, and an outdoor deck.” Not sure what “outdoor deck” means in this context—the whole thing is outdoors…. (It’s on the vacant lot bordered by Varick, Canal, Sullivan, and Grand.) Above: a rendering.
