Anthony Bourdain can create art, reunite beloved TV characters and booze with the best of 'em but he can't make production on his new international food market go any faster. The market's social media and website now indicate we won't be eating Blade-runner inspired tacos until 2019, a full two years later than previously expected, noticed Eater. That's a lot of time to kill on Instagram.
When (if?) the market ever opens inside Pier 57 it'll be quite a spectacle, with a Singapore-style hawker market and other international vendors, which has been a "big challenge" for the team in securing things like visas, which could be part of the holdup. There's also going to be a full-service restaurant, a "wet market" for breaking down whole animals, and entertainment like "karaoke, Asian pop performances and films." Then, of course, there's the Super Pier itself, which has yet to open.
