If there is an Iron Throne of New York’s Mexican cuisine, this Stark has a claim to it. In this city we adore our taquerias and Mexican food trucks, though, for many of us, the first time we picked up a refined taco off elegant dish ware was at an Ivy Stark restaurant—and we’ve been chasing the dragon ever since. Stark brings the élan she perfected at Dos Caminos and Rosa Mexicano to her signature Time Out Market eatery serving elevated Mexican favorites. The dishes are so shareable they’re are guaranteed to make you new friends at a communal table.
While upstairs at the Time Out Market, Stark pays homage to her roots with a modern cantina experience in our gorgeous teal rooftop space, downstairs she's also in the thick of it, with an entirely new concept making Mexican bites more flexible to dietary restrictions, with a vegan-friendly stall known as BKLYN Wild.
It’s not easy tinkering with the classics, but chef Ivy Stark keeps proving us wrong with her refreshing take on some of our favorite cuisines. The unicorn bowl, found at BKLYN Wild, is prepared with purple sweet potatoes (ube), pomegranate, coconut yogurt, pepitas and mint is one of the most healthful (and colorful) options at the market. Yeah, it might be super on-trend, but that's because this is the kind of food we actually like to eat. The ube is perfectly sweet and filling. It'll make you and your Instagram feed light up in full saturation, while leaving you feeling revved up for a big walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.
