Upper East Side resident and world-famous food guy Anthony Bourdain is planning a massive food market somewhere in Manhattan, and Eater NY reports that it will be created by one of our favorite design duos: Stephen Alesch and Robin Standefer of Roman and Williams. The designers shared a sketch of the plans via Instagram two months ago, but it flew under the radar until this week. The place will have a Blade Runner-inspired design and a "crazy-looking" floorplan with a farmers market and an "authentic hawker center" of food stalls.
The location of the highly anticipated market has not yet been announced3 World Trade Center was once rumored, but that building is years away from completionbut it will be huge and include outdoor space. Eater NY writes, "The farmers market section will house a produce market, a butcher shop, a bakery and a pastry shop, a tapas bar, a tea shop, and a 1,500 square-foot oyster bar, none of which will be 'the usual suspects' (whoever those are). Outside there will also be an Asian-influenced beer garden."
