In early 2015 I wrote about chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain’s New York City food hall opening this year. In the middle of the year it was announced that the Bourdain Market would be located at Pier 57 and Hudson River Park.
Kim and I happen to love food halls and have been looking forward to Bourdain’s offering, a take on an Asian hawker market. However, now it looks like we’ll all have to wait a bit longer for it to open.
According to Grub Street, Bourdain Market won’t be opening for around two years. That means we’re looking at a 2017 opening.
The market will be pretty big- 155,000 square feet and will still be at Pier 57.
Bourdain Market will feature 100 vendors selling retail and wholesale. There will also be a good mix from NY, around the US and the world!
The article mentions a couple of impressive vendors already lined up. Xi’an Famous Foods will have a space there and The Spotted Pig’s April Bloomfield & Ken Friedman will have two stalls. Other known international vendors which I’ve never heard of will also have a presence in the hall.
I don’t know about you, but I’m still looking forward to checking out Bourdain Market. I’ll just have to wait a little longer.
