Gansevoort Market


Collaborative food markets are having a moment in this past year. From Gotham West Market, to Hudson Eats, food hall or food court style spaces are housing some great talent all under one roof. The most recent to join this trend is Gansevoort Market in the Meatpacking District.


Once occupied by a club, this open space now has an array of food offering with a seating section underneath an incredible skylight and wrapped up in branches and bits of nature. Below are a list of all the vendors, in no particular order. 


Dojo Sushi is serving authentic Japanese cuisine and sushi.


Tacombi serves Mexican street food and tacos.


Champion Coffee serves coffee.


Heermance Farm Purveyors has organic produce from the Hudson Valley.

Name: Gansevoort Market 
Location: 52 Gansevoort Street, NYC
The Long and Short: Would I go back? Yes, there are lots of great vendors here, really something for everyone, in an accessible and open space.
Would I recommend it? For sure. It makes a great pit-stop for a coffee or snack, or, grab a bite and dine in their forest-like dining space. Plus, you’re right by the High Line, so, you can really make a day of it.




A speakeasy, mixologist doctors, and farm-to-bar practice? Yup, you can find all of these things at Apotheke in Chinatown. 


In the corner of a quiet street in Chinatown, you’ll see a red sign that reads “Gold Flower Restaurant”. Don’t worry, you’re in the right place. The door through this faux facade is where you’ll find Apotheke. Inside is a sleek mixology den, cozy, and lined with couches and chairs leading up to the bar. All cocktails here are made with local and organic produce from local greenmarkets or picked straight from their rooftop herb garden. Bet you didn’t expect that from a bar, huh?


All of the cocktails are broken down into categories paying homage to the apothecary theme, like “Healthy & Beauty”, “Stress Relievers” and “Pain Killers”. I went for Kale In Comparison (Aylesbury DuckVodka, Kale Juice, Pineapple, Ginger, Sea Bean, Lime, Digestive Tincture, Agave). I like to refer to this one as a garden party, you feel like you’re having a juice pressed cocktail. It has a salted rim, but the drink itself is slightly sweet with the freshness and flavor of greens and kale. I can safely say I haven’t had a drink quite like it before, and I loved it.

Name: Apotheke
Location: 9 Doyers Street, NYC
The Long and Short: Would I go back? Well, I’ve been going since they opened a few years ago, so, yes, I’m going to continue my support.
Would I recommend it? For sure. The cocktails are on the pricy side, but, it’s well worth the experience. Insider tip: commonly mispronounced, it’s “Aah-Poe-Tek”.
