Chelsea Market and MPD Street-food

The F-Word

Waking up lazy can only be matched by slow eating and the best fix for this is strolling through Chelsea Market and munching on freshly toasted granola, devouring a bagel crammed with lox and cream (smoked salmon and cream cheese) or gorging on a lobster roll and if that’s not enough to tempt even the most abstemious diner, there’s no resisting the artisan bakeries or the manicured windows of chocolatiers. The former industrial units celebrate the building’s roots with pared down interiors fit for purpose and pleasingly muted, presenting food as the star attraction. No wonder the Food Channel chose these premises as home.

This smorgasbord of taste ejects one under the shadow of the Highline and into the Meatpacking District Urban Space where foodies stalls kiss up against each other hustling the hungry passing trade. Noodles, empanadas, freshly fired pizzas, burritos, beef brisket sandwiches, Vietnamese char sui pork buns, chopped steak burgers, chilli dogs, Asian salads all flirt for attention. Whilst artisan milliners, jewellers, artists and makers seduce the taste buds of a different variety.

MPD perfectly combines life’s two most pleasurable ‘F’ and food and the best assets to have at your disposal are your fingers. Put them to good use shuffling the racks and shelves of the delectable collections at Scoop, Puma Black, Jeffrey, Carlos Miele, Diane Von Furstenburg Tory Burch, Jean Shop and afterwards wrap them around a glass of something cold whilst tucking into something hot at April Bloomfield’s The Spotted Pig.
