Chelsea Markets New York Review

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

Mise En Place will be bringing you some reviews and tips from across the pond over the next couple of weeks as we are in New York!

New York is a food lover’s dream, from street meat to Haute Cuisine and every imaginable flavour in between. A good place to start is at the Chelsea Markets situated in the hip Meat Packing district on the west side of Manhattan. Housed in a former Nabisco plant, where the first Oreos were baked in 1912, nearly two-dozen food wholesalers flank what is maybe the city’s longest interior walkway in a single building—from 9th to 10th avenues. You can eat your way from one end to the other, snacking on Fat Witch brownies, Ronnybrook farmer’s cheese, Amy’s Bread sourdough, or just watch the bread being made through the open kitchen.

The markets are a great way to escape the freezing winds outside (or heat in summer) and relax in a very funky atmosphere. The interior is a tangle of glass and metal creates the awning and art, artefacts, and a factory pipe converted into an indoor waterfall. The walls are lined with local artists and photographer’s works which you can take in as you stroll. As well as stalls selling organic food and produce there are also restaurants and coffee shops where you can relax and enjoy a great meal while watching the eclectic mix of foodie tourists, locals and the trendy 20 something’s from NY stroll past.

The cable TV channel The Food Network is also houses in the same building upstairs. They film the Iron Chef here, so if you are lucky you might catch a glimpse of some Iron Chefs as you chow down on one of the delicious crepes from Bar Suzette

We will be going back to stock up on some treats from the huge organic supermarket (think amazing BBQ sauces, which you just can’t get in London) before we head back across the pond, until then there is a lot more to explore in NY…..
