Spice Market

212-675-2322  •  $$$
ADDRESS: 403 W 13th St, (near 9th Ave), New York, NY 10014

CUISINE: Asian Fusion, Late-Night Dining

FEATURES: Full Bar, Handicap Access, Patio Seating, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly

DETAILS
Southeast Asian street-food-inspired fare served in a warehouse turned no-luxury-spared palace: If this concept could exist anywhere on earth, it would be in the Meatpacking District. In the hands of Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Spice Market proves to be a wild ride for the taste buds, not just the eyes. Tapestries, wood-carved pagodas, candles, silk lanterns and a waitstaff dressed as monks set the scene for indulgence, so why not order a specialty cocktail and enjoy the show? The menu consists largely of playful, dressed up renditions of market and street food enjoyed by Vongerichten while he traveled through Ho Chi Minh City, Bangkok and elsewhere in Southeast Asia. Starters include spring rolls, chicken samosas with yogurt, and mussels steamed with lemongrass, coconut juice, dried chili and Thai basil. Entrées such as red curried duck, onion- and chili-crusted short ribs, and steamed lobster with fried garlic, dried chili and ginger are served family-style - the foods of the people in a dining room fit for a king. Reservations suggested. Full bar. Serving lunch, dinner and late-night daily. "Spice Market is just plain fun. If you can't get a table (and even if you can), sit at the cantilevered bar upstairs, where it's a pleasure to dine ... and watch the party unfold."
- New York magazine

"Dishes are meant to be shared; check spiciness with your server beforehand, so you don't end up with your mouth on fire and no bread in sight."
- Time Out New York

"Spice Market's bearings, the structure of its menu and many of its dishes are pretty much unchanged from the early days."
- Frank Bruni, The New York Times

The New York Times
: * (good)
New York magazine: ** (very good); Critics' Pick
Zagat 2014: 23 food rating (very good to excellent)
