It's true—and we're not even talking about caviar-slathered hotdogs. At Spice Market, the inspiration comes from the streets of Asia, and specifically, the kinds of snacks peddled roadside from India to Thailand. They're given a creative spin by founder Jean-Georges Vonderichten and Chef de Cuisine Shean Suter on a menu made for sharing. (That is, if you don't mind sharing that plate of deliciously spicy-sweet Thai wings.) Under Chef Suter's direction, the menu has undergone a recent revamp, with new dishes like grilled short rib burger (topped with kimchi) and wok-fried rice noodles in yuzu broth joining crowd favorites like red curried duck and ginger fried rice. And while the inspirations may come from afar, some of the ingredients are about as local as it gets: plucked right from Spice Market's rooftop garden.
For those who haven't yet set foot in the restaurant, take note: the scenery is just as much a sensory treat as the food and drink. The lofty, dramatic dining room, lined with cushy booths and lit by rope-strung lanterns dangling overhead, sets the stage for the inventive dishes and exotic flavors dreamed up by the kitchen and bar—dishes and flavors inspired by the worldly travels of Jean-Georges Vonderichten himself. We don't know about y'all, but we're more than happy to travel vicariously through him, as long as coconut sticky rice and lychee-raspberry bellinis are involved.
