If you follow food trends, you’ve probably heard that food halls are a “thing.” Even though Chelsea Market had been a NYC staple since ’97, Eataly took the city by storm in 2010, creating a new generation of food hall-lovers.
Since Eataly’s NYC debut, the city has seen the opening of Gotham West Market, City Kitchen and more PLUS the hotly anticipated debut of Anthony Bourdain’s food hall, rumored to be a 100,000 square foot space located at a former shipping terminal at Pier 57, just south of Chelsea Piers.
Recently my friend and fabulous travel blogger Jessica van Dop DeJesus – a.k.a. The Dining Traveler – and I visited Gansevoort Market, an 8,000 square foot food hall in NYC’s Meatpacking District. Located just steps from the High Line, Gansevoort Market (a former warehouse) welcomes visitors through two garage doors.
With over twenty purveyors, Gansevoort Market is certainly a “foodie’s wonderland” that boasts a combination of outposts of more well-known restaurants (Ed’s Lobster Bar, Dojo & Tacombi) as well as lesser-known gems.
// Lobster-lovers will not be disappointed with the Lobster Roll at Ed’s Lobster Bar. //
// How precious are these blooms from Flower Girl NYC? //
// As outrageous as it sounds, Pig Guy NYC’s Bacon on a Stick is a MUST-TRY! //
// ALWAYS save room for dessert! //
Jessica and I had a lovely (and delicious!) afternoon exploring Gansevoort Market. I highly recommend spending an hour or two there, perhaps before or after a stroll on The High Line and a visit to the Whitney Museum of American Art’s new location!
Gansevoort Market is located at 52 Gansevoort Street, between Ninth & Washington.
If you go (or have been in the past) leave a comment- I’d love to hear about your experience!
