Anthony Bourdain’s International Street Food Hall in New York City Expected to Open Later This Year


Xi’an Famous Foods will be among the vendors at Bourdain Market, opening in 2015.

Though details have yet to be released about a definite location, Anthony Bourdain and business partner Stephen Werthen’s international street food hall in New York City is scheduled to open this year, the chef has revealed in a new interview with The Wall Street Journal.

Bourdain told Departures last year that the massive food hall would have “40 to 50 single-concept stalls,” each offering one or two specialties, and that the space would be divided into three sections that highlight Asian street food, a rotating geographic spotlight, and a selection of international and domestic gourmet street food.

The food hall will be named Bourdain Market and based on Singapore’s open-market hawker centers. Though he hasn’t shared many details with the public about the participating vendors, Xi’an Famous Foods’ Jason Wang is definitely in.


“Jason was pretty much the first person I thought of,” Bourdain told The Wall Street Journal. “It will be fast and accessible foods, with hundreds of options. You can have roast goose, I can have beef rendang.”
