Time Out Market New York has closed temporarily from March 16
Your safety means a lot to us. That’s why, in addition to changing our logo and shifting our mission, we’ve decided to close Time Out Market New York temporarily. The market will remain closed for as long as needed to help NYC in its ongoing efforts to fight the spread of coronavirus. We’ve made this difficult decision after monitoring the latest developments and receiving input from health authorities and the city government. The wellbeing of our guests and staff is the most important thing for us, so this seemed like the right way forward. “These are unprecedented times and nothing matters more than the health and safety of our guests, teams, concessionaires and the local community as a whole,” says Didier Souillat, CEO of Time Out Market. “We have decided to temporarily close as it is our responsibility to do our part to protect everybody—we are looking forward to reopening when it is safe and to once again welcome guests to Time Out Market.” The market will be closing after dinner service on Sunday evening, March 15. We hope to reopen soon, and will let you know as soon as we can when that will be.

Food Envy: Jacob's Pickles's Mushroom Gravy Fried Chicken Sandwich
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, Jacob's Pickles’s mushroom gravy fried chicken sandwich steals our hearts (and stomachs). New York has no shortage of standout fried chicken. At Bobwhite Counter in the East Village, the fried chicken is pressure-fried and has an unfussy, old-school charm. David Chang makes an unforgettable sandwich at his fried chicken-focused Fuku. Then there's the halal thigh meat at Adda in Long Island City, and those beloved wings at Charles’ Country Pan-Fried Chicken in Harlem (both Adda and Charles’ appear on our list of best restaurants in NYC). Upper West Side’s Jacob’s Pickles—a restaurant that provides a much needed cool factor to a neighborhood whose food scene remains somewhat still dormant—offers its own competitive fried chicken at Time Out Market New York. The Jacob’s Pickles market stall offers several fried chicken options, served as sandwiches between pillowy biscuits. As of late, we’ve tried their version with mushroom gravy ($13). The behemoth portion comes smothered with a creamy sauce that is decadent but less traditional with a lighter color than one might see with other versions. You will need a friend to help finish this.
Food Envy: Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors’ Slow Roasted Pork Shoulder Sandwich
When New York chefs are looking to source meat for their menus, chances are they’re looking for one celebrity butcher: Pat LaFrieda. Whether it’s steaks, burgers, sausages or hot dogs, LaFrieda is the go-to for many restaurants. After all, the nearly 100-year-old Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors, started by LaFrieda’s grandfather, supplies choice cuts to all kinds of spots, from casual NYC pizza joints and Shake Shack to Michelin-starred temples of haute cuisine. These days, you can feast on some of his greatest hits at our very own market. While the Brooklyn native meat master may be known for burgers, there’s a lot more to feast on at Time Out Market New York’s location of Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors. We’d recommend the slow roasted pork shoulder sandwich ($14). Between a crusty baguette you’ll bite into tender slices of succulent pork topped with melted provolone cheese and deliciously bitter broccoli rabe. Another bonus? We found the sandwich to be filling but not as heavy as some other lunch options. Pair it with some sweet potato tater tots ($5), and we understood why LaFrieda is the king of meat.
Food Envy: Clinton St. Baking Company’s latke eggs Benedict
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, Clinton St. Baking Company’s latke eggs Benedict steals our hearts (and stomachs). Whether you’re at one of NYC’s best brunches or best breakfasts restaurants, there’s no doubt you’ve seen your fair share of eggs Benedict. There are few dishes that symbolize the popular weekend ritual of brunching more than a cascade of marigold-hued hollandaise blanketing a pair of poached eggs atop slices of Canadian bacon and toasted English muffins. At Time Out Market New York, Clinton St. Baking Company kicks it up a notch by swapping out the bread and meat for house-smoked salmon and crispy latkes ($19). It’s no surprise given chef Neil Kleinberg has ruled the brunch game for years. To this day, fans still flock to his and wife DeDe Lahman’s Lower East Side restaurant for the fluffy blueberry pancakes and other breakfast hits. The latke eggs Benedict are also perfect for this holiday season. The Latke Festival just took place on December 16th at the Brooklyn Musuem for the 11th year in a row with an array of variations on the potato pancakes. While apple sauce and/ or sour cream often accompanies an order of latkes, the potatoes here are the perfect vehicle for soaking up the hollandaise and egg yolks. There’s no need to hack through a soggy English muffin when the shredded starch is formed into a perfectly crisp latke. We
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.

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
