Gourmet shops and food-geek mega-markets, like Dean & DeLuca and Smorgasburg, have long enticed epicures. Come autumn, a new set of gourmet food purveyors will roll out—offering high-end coffees, lobster rolls and pizza—amid upscale grocery selections.

RECOMMENDED: Full list of NYC restaurants opening this fall

Urban Space Meatpacking
Urban Space—the crew behind Mad Sq Eats and Dekalb Market—will bring artisanal eats to clubland via this 15,178-square-foot outdoor bazaar in the Meatpacking District. The top-notch lineup of 60 vendors includes Red Hook Lobster Pound, Roberta’s Pizza and Asia Dog, plus a fresh-pressed juice and smoothie bar. 437–451 W 13th St at Washington St (212-529-9262). Early September.

All Good Things
Tribeca will gain a mammoth food emporium when this 2,000-square-foot epicurean bazaar opens in the fall. Go merchant-hopping among vendors such as Orwashers Bakery, Blue Bottle Coffee, Dickson’s Farmstand Meats and Nunu Chocolates. It will also house a fish counter, a produce stand and an oyster bar, as well as a downstairs restaurant, with a prix-fixe-only menu helmed by chef Ryan Tate (Savoy). 102 Franklin St between West Broadway and Sixth Ave (212-966-3663). Mid-September.

Union Market
Brooklyn’s gourmet grocery store will make its Manhattan debut, with a colossal 5,500-square-foot-space dwarfing the Kings County locations. Chef Katy Sparks (Radish) will oversee a prepared food selection, offering meals like miso-crusted tofu with black and white sesame seeds and turkey-ricotta meatballs. 240 E Houston St between Essex and Norfolk Sts (unionmarket.com). Mid-September.

Brooklyn Fare
Cesar Ramirez dazzled the food world when his Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare—a tasting menu served in a spare grocery prep kitchen in Downtown Brooklyn—won three Michelin stars. Now, owner Moe Issa transports an expanded version of the concept across the East River. Ramirez will oversee a menu of pastas and Mediterranean fare on the 65-seat ground-floor dining room, while upstairs, shoppers can wander through an 11,000-square-foot luxe supermarket, which will make cheeses and pastries on-site. 
437–
439 37th St between Ninth and Tenth Aves (no phone yet). Late November.
