Head over to The List App for the photos of these dishes, and follow the @bourdainmarket Instagram account. Bourdain Market promises to bring you the world, having over 100 vendors from around the globe.
At 155,000 square feet, this will likely be New York’s largest food hall and by far the most vast menu. In addition to prepared food stalls staffed by vendors from around the world, Bourdain Market will also have meat and fish butcher counters as well as a space for a large sit-down restaurant area overlooking the main section of the hall.
Bourdain Market will be open late. “Think of an Asian night market,” Bourdain notes. “Eating and drinking at midnight.” The market might also host karaoke and film screenings.
The market will cost about $60 million when all is said and done. Bourdain has a very specific vibe in mind: “It will be all transparent and authentic…not sterile, but chaotic in a good way, with hawkers and vendors and places to eat. Where in this city can you have that?”
