The other day, when we descended from High Line (we constantly use High Line as a traffic-light-free express from Midtown West to Chelsea/Meatpacking), we came across this very inviting facade of Gansevoort Market. We were tempted by its industrial-turned-modern hippy interior style and lively vibe, and decided to grab a bite there.
We like this place immediately and see it as a cooler sibling of the nearby Chelsea Market, compared to which it’s not as touristic/crowded. Its rusty modernity and natural intimacy somehow reminds me of Brooklyn. Gansevoort Market takes in a lot of natural light from the wide storefront that faces the beautiful cobblestone street. The seating area bathes in the sunlight shed through the transparent rooftop and enjoys the company of green plants and tangled vines.
Although Gansevoort Market is not big, it carries a variety of food that could meet the desires of epicures for a satisfying snack or repast: pizza, gelato, cheesecake cone, macaron, sushi, taco, thai, "bruffins" (brioche-like pastry filled with sweet and savory stuff) and many more.
We ordered two slides of Luzzo’s pizza, which are, needless to say, amazing. Luzzo is the East Village gem that has introduced a distinctly Neapolitan style pizza to NYC, and we are glad to see its outpost at the west side.
