A Spoonful of Sofrito: Is Chelsea Market the City’s Best Food Court?
A Spoonful of Sofrito: A Pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life.
Is Chelsea Market the City’s Best Food Court?
New York City's food courts are renown for their diversity, incredible flavors, and amazing fare. With so many to choose from the question of which is the best is only natural to ask.
Eater.com's Robert Sietsema makes a strong argument that Chelsea Market, located at 75 9th Avenue, is the City's finest food court. I will agree that some of the market's eateries are amazing. I love the food at the Green Table, the desserts at Creamline, the pastries at Sarabeth's, and the amazing chocolates at Lilac Chocolates.
Check out Sietsema's article below! If you've never been to Chelsea Market, then maybe it's time you treated yourself to a nice Saturday afternoon of food, fun, and nice shopping. Read it, get out there, and ¡Buen Provecho!
When it started out 20 years ago, Chelsea Market aimed at providing warehousing and manufacturing facilities for small food-oriented businesses, many with retail outlets that would cater to professional and home cooks. For those of us who dabbled in the kitchen, it was paradise.
Wandering through the near-empty halls of the old Nabisco factory — where Oreos were invented — one could drop in on a butcher, an upstate dairy, a kitchenware concern, a shop selling groceries from Italy, an amazingly diverse fruit and vegetable stand, a Thai food store, and a bakery whose excellent loaves you could see being made through large plate glass windows. Planning a Sunday dinner party? This was your one-stop destination!
