The gist: Opening tomorrow, July 14th, The Bowery Market brings a selection of some of the city's hottest restaurants al fresco. On the corner of Bowery and Great Jones, you'll find five new kiosks which offer walk-up dining and some partial seating.
The food: The five vendors include favorites like sandwich king Alidoro, Greenpoint's Champion Coffee, LA import The Butcher's Daughter, Chinatown Mexican hotspot Pulqueria and the return of former Sushi Dojo chef David Bouhadana with Sushi on Jones. At Alidoro, you can expect over 20 Italian sandwiches and salads including their Fratelli D’Italia with porchetta, basil pesto, fresh mozzarella, hot spread, sweet peppers, and arugula. Butcher's Daughter will offer healthy veggie-focused options like juices, macro bowls and breakfast burritos. Head to Pulqueria for tacos and their famous Granada de Piña, a Mexican pina colada made with chili spices and pulque (fermented sap of the agave plant), served in a frozen, cored pineapple. Sushi on Jones will offer fresh nigiri sushi and Champion Coffee will offer signature drinks like Maple Cortado: milk, maple syrup and espresso in addition to classic coffee drinks.
The space: Located on an East Village corner that once housed an auto body shop, this 1000-square foot space features five unique kiosks that were all designed in the style of each vendor and feature elements of exposed brick, reclaimed wood and corrugated metal. Remnants of the former body shop remain including graffiti and a small motorcycle hanging over the entrance.
The details: 348 Bowery (at Great Jones Street). Open daily from 8AM-9PM, credit cards accepted.
