With more than 35 top-notch restaurants, stalls and vendors lining its food hall, Chelsea Market is a must-see for any foodie visiting New York City. Not only is it the headquarters of the Food Network, but there are so many shops to explore that you could spend an entire day inside and still not see or taste everything. Start the day with a scone or sticky bun at Amy's Bread; work your way to whole lobsters cooked to order or the freshest freshly shucked oysters at The Lobster Place for lunch; take a break for cupcakes at Eleni's or gelato at L'Arte del Gelato; and end with an upscale Asian fusion dinner at the beautifully designed Buddakan.
In addition to all of the food options, there are also cookware shops, herb and spice stalls, and a cheese shop to keep you busy. And with the high-end clothing stores of the Meatpacking District and High Line Park nearby, visiting Chelsea Market makes for a wonderful food-centered adventure in New York City.
