By Bao Ong and Will Gleason

UPDATE: In cooperation with the New York state order that currently bans indoor dining—and with the wellbeing of our guests, chefs and employees in mind—all services at Time Out Market New York are temporarily paused. That includes outdoor dining, takeout and delivery.

Please follow us @timeoutmarketnewyork for more information and reopening updates. In the meantime, we encourage you to support our chefs’ brick-and-mortar restaurants, many of which are still serving takeout and delivery or offering outdoor dining. We look forward to seeing you again soon, New York!

Time Out Market New York is sandwiched (mmm, sandwiches) between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges with the best waterfront restaurantsand views—this side of the East River. Just as impressive are the eateries that fill the expansive 21,000-square-foot space in the historic Dumbo warehouse Empire Stores (55 Water St, Brooklyn). As we reopen, we want to ensure our guests that we will be upholding strict safety measures (to learn more about the precautions we're taking, please see our FAQ guide). In addition, we're launching the option to have our food delivered or picked-up for takeout with our very own app for ordering. 

Our editors ate countless meals and drank more than a few cocktails to find the best the city has to offer under one roof. Now, your challenge: deciding what to order. Time Out Market New York offers a diverse roster of restaurants and bars, complemented by cultural experiences, so that you can taste classic New York dishes—think hot pastrami sandwiches and incredible pizza—as well as new fixations, including the best Thai seafood dishes in the city. Click on the eateries to learn more about the restaurants and for a preview of the menus. We promise you won’t leave hungry.

Chote Miya - Time Out Market

Restaurants DUMBO

Indian street food - temporarily paused

There’s never been a better time for Indian food in NYC. Talented chefs like Chote Miya’s Satinder Vij have helped shed the cuisine’s cheap-and-good image by revamping classics like curries and samosas that still pay homage to the array of textures and flavors we have come to love. The menu, inspired by Bombay’s most popular street-side eateries, is full of recipes that Indian-food purists and fans of modern Indian restaurants (such as sister restaurant Gupshup) can get behind.

Signature dish: Bombay Frankies

Modern Mexican - temporarily paused

In this city we adore our taquerias and Mexican food trucks, but for many of us, the first time we picked up a refined taco or guac off elegant dishware was at an Ivy Stark restaurant.

Signature dish: Guacamole, chips and salsa (avocado smash, pomegranate, lime, chili-toasted pepitas and hand-made corn tortillas)

Time Out Market Bar


Everything you love about New York City's best bars can be found at Time Out Market: cocktails worthy of a hidden speakeasy, panoramic views of the skyline and happy hours to end your (work-from-home) day. Just like our curation of eateries, we've put in just as much thought when it comes to building our bar. Some of the city's best bartenders were behind us on Day One with Instagrammable libations and today, the creativity keeps flowing with drinks like the Smokin' Cherry Mule and Southsider. We dare you to order just one.
