An NYU dining hall that is fully halal opened Jan. 27, reports The Villager’s Gabe Herman. While two dining halls at the school already have halal sections, Lipton Dining Hall at 33 Washington Square West will serve all halal food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Herman notes that the dining hall joins the “growing number of halal food options” in Greenwich Village.

Of course there are halal food carts: Fifty-seven percent of the city’s food vendors are Muslim, according to Muslims for American Progress. And just on MacDougal St. between Bleecker and W. Third Sts., there is Kati Roll Company, Mint Masala and Burgers by Honest Chops. The burger place was co-founded by Imam Latif, along with its sister shop Honest Chops Butchery in the East Village.
