Imagine you went along to a food hall on your travels and each and every stall was hand-picked by the Michelin Guide. Well, for those who aren’t too familiar with the James Beard Foundation, just know that it acts in a similar many to Michelin for the United States. A James Beard Award is a coveted and highly regarded tick of approval for any restaurant in America, so it’s worth paying attention when the authoritative body opens up an actual food hall in one of the world’s most delicious cities.

That’s the idea behind Google’s Market 57, a new dining precinct located in Pier 57 at New York City’s Hudson River Park. Pending reception, it could be one of the year’s most important changes in the incredibly dynamic city, leaning heavily on the Big Apple’s diverse culinary influences with designs on showcasing diversity alongside young talent and innovative food concepts.

There are 16 stalls that make up Market 57 New York, which peels off the High Line along with the area’s other attractions such as the Meatpacking District, Whitney Museum, Hudson River Park, Little Island, Hudson Yards and the overrun Chelsea Market. You’ll find it down a long hallway leading into a previously unused part of Pier 57, now decked out with all these James Beard-approved stalls that illustrate New York’s multicultural tastes.

Homestyle Indian dishes from Ammi seem to be the biggest hit according to early reports. Eater claims the duck larb from Zaab Zaab is the best thing there. And there’s even a Chinese farm-to-table kitchen called Local Roots, nearby the Caribbean-influenced Lolo’s On The Water and a concept space called Good To Go which will be used by the James Beard Foundation to showcase different culinary talent.

For travellers, it’s an easy solution when wondering what to eat in New York City, somewhere so outrageously stacked with good quality food that deciding on where to eat for lunch and dinner usually takes longer than the meal itself. Next time you find yourself in the Big Apple it’s looking like Market 57 New York is the first place you should go.
