Upcoming Dumbo waterfront food hall Time Out Market has announced seven additional vendors ahead of its spring debut — and they include local standouts like Breads Bakery and Mr. Taka.
The 21,000-square-foot market will span two floors and bring 21 new food options to Dumbo’s Empire Stores, a culinary project backed by the same company as magazine Time Out New York. New vendors announced today include two concepts from Israeli bakeshop Breads Bakery: a bakery portion serving coffee and baked goods like its celebrated chocolate babkas, and a sandwich shop highlighting the Jerusalem bagel. Middle Eastern Gramercy restaurant Nur, from the same owner, will open Nurish, serving classics from the original.
Chefs Takatoshi Nagara and Takayuki Watanabe will open tonkotsu ramen shop Mr. Taka, which hails from the Lower East Side. Favorites like the miso ramen with chicken and fish broth will be on tap. Bklyn Wild comes from chef Ivy Stark (Dos Caminos, Amalia) and will have a purely vegan menu. And meat purveyor Pat LaFrieda will be slinging sandwiches, burgers, and hot dogs — including a black angus cheesesteak with American cheese and sautéed Vidalia onions on a toasted baguette.
As for sweets, LES scoop shop Ice & Vice will have funky flavored sorbet, ice cream, and frozen yogurt like one with eucalyptus, black pepper, and chocolate chips. Another called “TV Dinner” will be flavored with carrots, cloves, and sweet pea frosting. Plus, vegan smoothies, bowls, and juices will be available at Loco Coco, known for Instagrammable healthy fare on the Upper East Side.
See a full list of vendors below. Previously announced food stalls include one from pancake hit Clinton Street Baking Co., popular Brooklyn pizzeria Juliana’s, and chef Akhtar Nawab’s Mexican cantina Alta Calidad.
The idea is to fill the place with restaurants that “represent the city,” market CEO Didier Souillat told Eater last year. The magazine’s editorial team has weighed in on the choices.
All in all, the massive market will have 21 food options, three bars, a performance stage, and an exhibition space at the Empire Stores at 55 Water St. A rooftop is also in blueprint, promising views of the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan skyline.
