Gotham West Market
Gotham West Market just opened up this past week on 11th Avenue between 44/45th. An interesting location although underneath a huge residential building. On the outskirts of the Hells Kitchen neighborhood. Figured we would go check it out even though it had only been open for 3 days.
The place was packed! Many of the restaurants and staff were not prepared for the onslaught of business. Is it a destination location for an afternoon of food or is it people who live in the neighborhood? I figure time will tell and certainly the vendors will get better at preparing the food on a timely basis.
Ivan Ramen was beyond overwhelmed and people were not happy. It was taking up to 45 minutes to get a ramen after ordering it and they were not that clear with the customers about that.
I had a salad. Super fresh and just made. The grilled chicken on top made zero sense to me. For an additional cost you can pick from a few grilled proteins on top but honestly it was the size of my thumb.
Could be a game changer in the neighborhood.
