Bourdain knows he won't please everyone.
Bourdain acknowledged a few simple truths about creating this space, one of which being, “I don’t know if the Bourdain Market will be the first place a committed vegan will come to enjoy their food of choice.” He promised there would be vegetarian and vegan options, especially from cuisines like India and others from around the world, though.
He promised Filipino food, particularly sisig, would be a highlight of the market when it opened. “Filipino food is definitely underrated worldwide," Bourdain said. "In New York, it doesn’t have hipster credibility yet. But things are changing, and I hope to be a part of that change.”
