It should come as no surprise that Bourdain plans to open a massive food market of his own -- aptly named Bourdain Market -- in New York City as soon as sometime next year. The market will reportedly span 100,000sqft and will likely be located at Pier 57 on Manhattan's West Side, and Bourdain wants to make clear it's going to be more than a mere food court.
"There will be butchers and produce and fishmongers," he said in the story. "It will serve an important, everyday function. Its heart and soul will be Asian, but I've also been recruiting Mexicans, Peruvians, Brazilians. It's going to be independent mom-and-pop stuff they've been doing for generations, at an affordable price." But knowing Manhattan grocery rates, we'll just see about that.
