Move over, Eataly. Sorry, Smorgasburg. The title of hot new food market in New York City is to be claimed, unequivocally, by Anthony Bourdain and his new Bourdain Market, which will house over 100 food vendors. It's going to be a theme park for food-lovers, the Epcot of street food, apparently.
The lineup will include many street food favorites from around the world. Grub Street has a wish list of favorites from France to Vietnam (yes to Du Pain et Des Idées, pretty please). Eater rounds up the essential facts here, calling it, merely, "one of the most anticipated restaurant projects of the decade."
I get to New York often for work, but I don't usually pay much attention to the buzz of the restaurant scene, just revisiting my favorites. But this project has me excited too. If Bourdain can bring the flavors and energy of night markets in Asia and the authenticity of the best Mexico City food stalls to the heart of New York, I think it's worth a trip.
