Chelsea Market’s block-long outdoor seating and dining program on Manhattan’s West Side gives visitors an opportunity, to once again, experience the marketplace and its collection of distinctive restaurants and retailers, together.
With more than 115 socially distanced tables lining 1,000-plus linear feet on 15th and 16th Streets (between 9th and 10th Avenues), more than 200 guests will be able to enjoy full table service, self-service, take-out, and delivery from some of the west side’s most beloved restaurants and chefs.
Upon arriving in the dining area, guests will be greeted by the market’s signature red bistro tables and black bistro chairs. Wood-cladded stanchions and industrial steel planters with lush landscaping will line the expanded sidewalks to create an enclosure.
The following businesses now offer table service: Ayada, Buddakan, Dickson’s Farmstand Meats, Lobster Place and Miznon. Other market vendors will have communal seating with online ordering and pickup available: Creamline, Buon’Italia, Doughnuttery, Filaga, Los Tacos No. 1, Mokbar, Seed + Mill, Tings and Very Fresh Noodles. L’Arte del Gelato will also have an outdoor cart.
To help guests navigate their dining options available, Chelsea Market has launched a Mobile Directory, scannable onsite, that lists all available menu and for-sale items for each retailer and restaurant. For customer ease while onsite, QR codes appear on each table. Once an order is placed, a QR code will direct customers to an exact location to pick up their meals or merchandise.
Two kiosk areas have been retrofitted on 15th Street with operable windows for ordering and pickup to complement the repurposed windows, doors, and open storefronts a number of retailers and restaurants will be using for take-out.
