Having opened in the fall of 2014, Gansevoort Market is one of the newer food halls in the New York scene. Yet despite being in its early stages, the market has smartly curated a list of high-quality vendors that balances broad name recognition with local expertise, including a branch of Tacombi tacos (with its own vintage truck serving about half the offerings of its NoLIta parent), and a Sushi Dojo Express with a small sushi counter and plenty of take-away offerings like striped bass and uni rolls.
The counter-service eateries and food stalls also include Cappone’s Salumeria, which crafts Italian sandwiches full of the freshest meats, Macelleria, a stunningly visual butcher counter for all the senses, and Pig Guy, for when pulled pork sandwiches and mac and cheese are all that will sate your appetite.
It is clear to me that Gansevoort Market is poised to be a joyful addition to a Meatpacking food scene that otherwise offers very little DJ-free dining. With quick access to the beginning of the High Line, this sharp, sophisticated, and glowingly warm space is a perfect destination for a summery afternoon or evening in the area when excellent food and sunshine are in order.
