Back in January I wrote how the Anthony Bourdain New York food hall would be opening in 2015. A few months later the location of the food hall was revealed. Then news came out that Bourdain’s food hall wouldn’t be opening until 2017.
The food hall will be an ambitious project, featuring vendors both local and from around the world. With Kim and I being fans of food halls and markets, we look forward to visiting Bourdain’s when it opens in a couple of years.
News about the project has been relatively quiet recently. Here are some updates about what’s going on with the Anthony Bourdain New York Food Hall.
The project has been give preliminary approval from the Manhattan Borough President’s office, City Council and City Planning Commission. The public will soon get to voice their opinion about it at a public hearing.
The food hall, which will be located at Pier 57 will also have a Google office and a huge 80,000 square-foot rooftop park. Sounds pretty cool so far.
Work is supposed to begin on the project in 2016 with an opening date now being pushed back to 2018. Delays, delays…
Bourdain Food Hall will have over 100 vendors from all around the world.
Here are some that are already signed up:
- Geylang Claypot Rice– Singapore
- Sabina Bendera– (operator’s of La Guerrerense tostada cart)- Ensenada, Mexic
- Victor Churchill Butcher Shop– Australia
- Ken Friedman & April Bloomfield– NYC (The Spotted Pig) will have two stalls
- The Street Vendor Project-will “curate a dozen stalls” from around NYC. (Eater)
The project sounds amazing. I just wish that the opening date didn’t keep getting pushed back! I also wonder if Anthony Bourdain will control/ curate one of the stalls at the market or will be just have input into the overall project.
