New Amsterdam Food Market

Food lover's paradise on a beautiful day next to the South Street Seaport. This monthly market brings local, upstate and even some Vermont purveyors to town with samples of their goods. Breads are beautiful here and some of the best include our local Pain d'Avigon, Sullivan Street Bakery and Balthazar. Brooklyn was well represented with Salties, Marlow and Sons, and The Meat Hook. My bratwurst on a potato roll with homemade cabbage, and spicy mustard from The Meat Hook was beyond delicious. Lots of cheese samples, some wine samples and even some chocolate samples. Ice-cream from the upstate creamery, Bent Spoon chocolate with rosemary was lovely. Other notables were Porchetta with their pork sandwich and the line for the East Village's Luke's Lobster was long though the sandwich looked rather ordinary. Freshly shucked oysters and a lovely chili with all the fixin's and a semolina cracker from Marlow and sons were tempting, but the bratwurst plus samples filled up my deliriously happy stomach.
