TIME OUT – The one thing you should eat at every food hall in NYC


When Ninth Avenue stalwart Chelsea Market opened in 1997, the city fell hard for the food hall concept—now, instead of sitting down for a boring old appetizer-entree-dessert, it was possible to graze through your way through a meal, sampling bites from two or three (or six) vendors in one visit.
