Anthony Bourdain’s hawker-style market coming to Pier 57 has pushed back its opening date by two years, according to new dates listed on its website and Instagram spotted by Eater NY. What exactly the market’s delayed timeline means for Pier 57, the 560,000-square-foot redevelopment project helmed by Youngwoo & Associates, means for the project at large isn’t quite clear.
The market was originally poised to open in late 2017, and Bourdain told Adweek as much in an interview several weeks ago. But the Parts Unknown host also told the publication that the market is a "huge, huge, huge undertaking" with lots of hurdles to clear, like obtaining visas for international vendors.
The food hall is being designed by beloved interiors firm Roman & Williams, and has been teased in several sketches from the firm’s desk. It’s a long way to 2019, so probably expect a few more of those alongside saturated images of international fare on the market’s Instagram over the next three years.
