staying nourished during market week : a guide

with back-to-back appointments all over and across town (the "towns" in this case being new york and paris) weeks at market are as exhilarating as they are hectic. 

we always find time to eat well (and hydrate) throughout the chaos. below, find some of our recent discoveries and old favorites. 

new york

danji

346 w 52nd st
 
check out this spot in midtown for modern korean fare. after only a year in business, they received a michelin star. and it's well deserved. 
 

the nomad bar

10 w 28th st
 
this bar downtown is worth a visit for the ambience. we also had a memorable hotdog that had us all saying ‘hell, yeah!’ oh, and the cocktails do not suck one single bit. 
 

bowery meat company

9 e 1st st
 
we stumbled on this delicious steakhouse during a recent trip. get the meatballs! and a manhattan, of course. 
 

two hands

164 mott st
 
stop by this australian establishment for a healthy, tasty lunch. they also have a great coffee/tea menu to take to go. 
  
 

miss lily's 

132 w hudson st

it's hard not to love everything about miss lily's — delicious, flavorful food and refreshing drinks in an upbeat setting. jerk corn is a must try.

  
 

employees only

510 hudson st
 
a fitting spot to enjoy drinks with coworkers. their seasonal house cocktails are superb, and they make a mean manhattan. 
 

bar bolonat

611 hudson st

an intimate west village restaurant serving up modern takes on Israeli cuisine. start by nibbling on their delectable fried olives and get lost in the deliciousness from there. 

 

press lounge

kimpton ink48 hotel, 653 11th ave

for a drink with a stunning view of the city, check out the rooftop bar at the kimpton ink48 hotel. 

 

paris

marche des enfants rouges

9 rue de beauce

this unassuming spot in the marais is actually paris's oldest covered market and dates to 1615. in its current iteration, it's part market / part food stalls. don't miss the japanese bento boxes. 

ellsworth

34 rue de richelieu
 
if your level of french doesn't move quite beyond "oui," it'll be easy to say "yes, please," at ellsworth, a discretely anglophone spot for fabulous small plates. get the fried chicken. seriously. 
 

le mary celeste

1 rue commines

le mary celeste has become a scarpa favorite for a drink or food or both. actually, even if you're only there for a drink, you still have to order their oeuf de diable (deviled eggs, as it were). forget everything you thought a deviled egg should be. they are simply beyond.

little red door

60 rue charlot

though most would consider this bar more of a late night spot, the great thing about going to a nightclub early is that you have the place to yourself and you can really enjoy what you're guaranteed — a fabulous cocktail and a cute waiter. their menu is also particularly inventive: a book with pull-out tabs instructs you to choose which image matches your mood. you then reveal the corresponding cocktail. quelle romantique. 

la pulperia

11 rue richard lenoir

if you've read this far, you've probably realized we're partial to a good steak.  this cozy argentinian restaurant with a relaxed, neighborhood vibe has plenty to offer in the beef department, as well as more franco-inspired dishes, such as an exceptional foie gras.
