FROM GARAGE TO GOODIES
Pine Street Market Portland, Oregon
In an 1886 building once used for horse-and-carriage parking, Pine Street Market will be “emblematically Portland,” says Mike Thelin, culinary curator of the project. When Pine Street opens in November, expect 10 stalls from iconic local chefs and purveyors, such as a hot-dog stand by charcuterie producer Olympia Provisions and a beer bar by Hopworks.
St. Roch New Orleans
A downtown market since 1875, St. Roch reopened 10 years ago for the first time since Hurricane Katrina — after a $3.7 million renovation. Of the 13 local vendors, highlights include crawfish poutine at King Creole and NOLA-inspired cocktails at The Mayhaw bar.
FOOD AND WINE AND CLASS
From celebrity chef and prolific restaurateur Richard Sandoval, Latinicity will feature 12 creative eateries, a global tapas restaurant, a wine bar and a fresh market — plus cooking classes. Located in Chicago’s Loop district, the Pan-American-meets- Spanish market opens this October.
City Kitchen New York
City Kitchen, located in Times Square, is a mix of the most buzzed-about eats in NYC from Brooklyn to the Upper West Side, all rolled into one locale. Indulge in favorites such as Whitmans peanut-butter-and-bacon burger, Taiwanese-style shaved snow at Wooly’s or Dough’s hibiscus doughnut.
