Food Envy: Time Out Market New York’s Matcha-Tini
Welcome to Food Envy, where we’ll highlight different dishes from Time Out Market New York that we think you’re going to love—partly because we do. This week, Time Out Market New York’s Matcha-Tini steals our hearts (and stomachs). RECOMMENDED: Guide to Time Out Market New York In 2019, we’ve tasted our fair share of martinis, Old Fashioneds and even boozy bubble tea. During our exhaustive search for the best New York bars, however, we’ve noticed one undeniable trend: the person behind the bar is using better quality ingredients than ever before. often turning to ingredients once thought as only healthy foods. Don’t believe us? Order the Matcha-Tini at Time Out Market New York. This stunning cocktail is composed of Ketel One vodka, kummel (a sweet colorless liqueur flavored with caraway seeds, cumin and fennel), rosemary and the ingredient du jour: matcha. Topped with an orchid, it’s as refreshing as it tastes. You may even feel virtuous drinking a libation that could almost pass as a green juice. But in fact, the match, which is finely ground green tea leaves, has been popular for a few years. New Yorkers order matcha lattes, shots and even cold brews like it’s liquid gold. Perhaps matcha’s rise in popularity dovetails with how chefs are using more plant-based ingredients on their menus (or even their restaurant’s interior design). In the meantime, we’ll be enjoying this seasonal cocktail on one of the best rooftops in NYC.
Food Envy: Alta Calidad's Mushroom Roti
Welcome to Food Envy, where we’ll highlight different dishes from Time Out Market New York that we think you’re going to love—partly because we do. This week, Alta Calidad’s mushroom roti steals our hearts (and stomachs). RECOMMENDED: Guide to Time Out Market New York The mesmerizing whirling dervish of the white sauce drizzled in a spiral on chef Akhtar Nawab’s roti—a dish designed his stand at our Dumbo market—is reason enough to make the dish memorable. The flatbread is one of the most clear representations of Nawab’s cooking style at the intersection of Mexican and Indian flavors, a combination emphasized at his Prospect Heights favorite, Alta Calidad. The flatbread is 12-inches, a huge portion priced at $16, which you’ll need at least another person to help you finish. On top of the circular carb base are black beans, poblano, salsa, onions and cilantro as well as a surplus of saucily cooked mushrooms. The dish is one of the more filling ones at the Time Out Market, that still feels, dare say, healthy?
Food Envy: Breads Bakery’s Thanksgiving pies
Welcome to Food Envy, where we’ll highlight different dishes from Time Out Market New York that we think you’re going to love—partly because we do. This week, Breads Bakery’s Thanksgiving pies steal our hearts (and stomachs). RECOMMENDED: Guide to Time Out Market New York It’s that time of the year when everyone’s go-to dessert seems to be the same thing: pie. The best pies in the city offer seasonal riffs on classics (who can refuse a slice of apple pie), holiday favorites (PSL fans must be in overdrive with a surplus of pumpkin pie) and even savory options. So when Breads Bakery, which sells our favorite babka in the city, rolled out its seasonal Thanksgiving pies, we had to try them. It doesn’t matter whether you prefer a fruit filling versus a custard or you believe pecan pie should never mingle with chocolate, there’s seemingly a pie for every palate. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Breads Bakery™ (@breadsbakery) on Nov 15, 2019 at 6:07pm PST Until November 27th, you can find mini pies ($4.50, individual portions coming in flavors such as pumpkin, pecan, apple crumb and flan) and two other savory options: Cranberry Gouda Challah Rolls ($13.50) and a Harvest Babka (a savory babka with roasted veggies for $14.95 or 2 for $24.95). The pies we tasted were not cloyingly sweet, even the creamy flan pie with its perfectly brûléed topping. The apple crumble is filled with Granny Smith apples cloaked in brown sugar
Food Envy: Fish Cheeks' Crab Curry
Welcome to Food Envy, where we’ll highlight different dishes from Time Out Market New York that we think you’re going to love—partly because we do. This week, the crab curry at Fish Cheeks steals our hearts (and stomachs). RECOMMENDED: Guide to Time Out Market New York Fish Cheeks—the Bond Street Thai restaurant with primary color chairs and lamps that look like woven fish scales—is by far one of New York’s better seafood restaurants. Joining the Time Out Market’s New York location opening, they’ve pared down their menu, but whittled it down to a handful of excellent dishes like its version of dressed oysters and fried chicken wings with chili, lime and mint. But Fish Cheeks’ crab curry is what I keep coming back to. I deeply believe it is the biggest sleeper hit of the market, and I do not say that lightly. As a plated dish, it is honestly not that aesthetically pleasing, but it is a must-try. Served in a shallow and wide-rimmed bowl, unctuous and expertly-cooked crab gets placed in a well-spiced bath of coconut milk curry, the color of a deep tan. The result is a spicy-yet-silky dish that is close to perfect. It's so rich that I’d like to dip into it at the spa or lather it over myself like sunscreen.

Guests will be able to move throughout the indoor and outdoor areas of the venue and take in views of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge.

Delicious bites will be available for purchase from the fifth floor vendors and a complimentary champagne toast will go down at midnight (along with a live screening of the ball drop in Times Square). The night will also be family-friendly, so feel free to bring along the kids!

Take a stroll: Brooklyn Bridge Park
Some city parks—Central and Prospect, most obviously—were built to replicate rustic fields and preserve serene woodland. Brooklyn Bridge Park, however, was not—and that’s precisely why it has become so popular in the five years since it debuted. The project has transformed a chunk of the Brooklyn waterfront into an 85-acre expanse; several sections house unique attractions such as Jane’s Carousel, a restored 1920s merry-go-round, and riverside esplanades with gorgeous Manhattan views. Its latest addition, Pier 2, designed specifically for "active recreation"—sporting leagues, picnics and roller skating—further cements the space as the city’s premier urban playground.
Get creative: Art in General
Originally founded in 1981 by artists Martin Weinstein and Teresa Liszka, this non-profit was a stalwart of the Downtown art scene for more than three decades before moving in January 2016 to its current location in Brooklyn, bringing its program of exhibitions, artist residencies and commissioned projects to a flexible ground-floor space in Dumbo.
