Chelsea Market has evolved into a pretty remarkable place. The Nut Box just opened a huge retail space right next door to Num Pang Sandwich Shop. This is Num Pangs second shop. Both great additions. But the absolute best addition is the reopening of the Lobster Place.
The two guys behind the Lobster Place have done an incredible job. Super smart well thought out flow. If you want to know how to build a market where people can also sit down and enjoy the wares this is it. Very European. I also love the black chalkboard feel with white print.
There are other random areas to sit. Products are sprinkled around each location too. Here is one of the cases filled with herring. They also sell really fresh beautiful raw fish to take home and cook for dinner.
For dessert they serve a little scoop of gelato as part of your meal. This was creamsickle. I brought Fred back to take a look en route to dinner that night. Looking forward to returning for dinner very soon.
