Time Out, the revolutionary media company known to compile some of the best itineraries for city exploration, has officially launched its third Time Out Market located in Dumbo (55 Water St, Brooklyn)—and it’s already a huge success after having opened barely a month ago.
Following in the footsteps of its Portugal and Miami predecessors, New York’s Time Out Market overlooks the Manhattan skyline with unbeatable views of the East River, garnering plenty of foot traffic in the popular waterfront scene near the Brooklyn Bridge.
Unlike traditional food halls, Time Out Market’s vision was designed by a magazine, rather than a business plan. Some of the most cultured veterans of New York City, a.k.a. the editors of Time Out New York, personally crafted the market’s collection of eateries by wining and dining at an unlimited number of restaurants until their palettes were fully satiated.
Their top picks were consolidated into 21 venues, each of them complementing the other in a meticulously curated mix. Between Israeli chef Meir Adoni’s Nur, authentic Japanese cuisine at Bessou, classic pancake institution Clinton St. Baking Company, and health-conscious vegan spot BKLYN Wild, the hungry New Yorker (or visitor) has a multitude of cuisines and tastes to choose from—all under one roof.
Not only does the 24,000-square-foot market house 21 vendors, it also features a demo cooking area, a video-installation wall, and three bars, with some of the finest cocktails in the game. The communal tables are equipped with leather chairs, and the food is served on real dishware with metal utensils.
