Spice Market is a regal and exotic restaurant that serves a variety of elevated Southeast Asian dishes. Jean-Georges Vongerichten runs the kitchen, where the food is inspired by traditional street foods found throughout Thailand and China. The restaurant�s interior is luxurious and ornate, designed in an oriental fashion. Spice Market is a great place to enjoy an intimate meal or celebrate a special occasion in a chic environment.
Begin the meal with appetizers like chicken samosas, Hamachi sashimi and lentil chips with tomato Indian jam. Stop in early for brunch and enjoy dishes like the lobster omelette with shrimp and kimchi relish, short rib hash and the Pandan waffle with banana coins and condensed milk. Lunch and dinner options include the steak entr�e, vegetable pad Thai and chicken satay. Finish the meal at Spice Market with a sweet dessert like biscuits with honey syrup or cassava cake.
The three hostesses were extremely rude and ignored me as I patiently waited for about five minutes before they checked me in. We then waited another 20 minutes for our table even with a reservation. When the runner took us to our table, it had not yet been cleared from the last customers, so we had to wait another 10 minutes with only a lukewarm apology.
Our served acted like she didn't have time for us either.
Not sure if this was because the restaurant was closing the day after and the staff just didn't care anymore or the other way around.
Beautiful restaurant with a lot of ambience and great food.
So sad this had to be our last meal here. Hope they find a new place and can open again. Will miss their blend of exotic, spicy flavors!
Food left to be desired. Service was courteous. There was mistake and it was fixed
I can't believe that was my last meal at Spice Market. I hope this restaurant finds a new space and reopens soon. I have enjoyed some special occasions and made some great memories at Spice Market, it is one of my favorite places in the city. The Duck Curry is to die for. Everything on the menu is delicious, I wish I had a chance to try it all over the years, but that's what kept me coming back. I will miss the open doors in the front with the breeze in the summer, and having cozy meals in the downstairs floor.
We will miss it!
Don't close the spice market it's AWESOME!!
Excellent, interesting Asian street fare as ever. Friendly if desultory service. Lovely setting. Too bad it's closing!
I will truly miss this place and was hoping to eat the short rib with noodles, but alas it was removed from the menu. Well, it's come to an end!!! It was great while it lasted.
Tourist trap with the name of Vongerichten. Not worth it.
Great as always, hoping to come back here again soon
We loved it! Great ambiance and the food was amazing
Going to miss this place so much. Best atmosphere and fantastic food :)
I love everything about this place so sad that it's closing soon
I love this restaurant and am sad it's closing this week. I've spent client dinners here with colleagues on two occasions and was treated well and served amazing food. On another two occasions I came to celebrate my anniversary. I will miss this place.
this restaurant is closing soon due to the landlord. It has always been my "go to" for something different and interesting yet amicable to anyone's pallet in the meat packing district. The food was delicious as always but it seems the wait staff already has their foot out the door. We spent more time looking for our waiter than anything. We waited over 20 minutes for dessert then had to track someone down to pay the bill. I have never had such poor service there.
This restaurant is closing in s few days. There was a limited menu and the food wasn't that good. The service was practically non-existent. They were all standing around but not paying attention to customers. Disappointed that this was my last experience with them.
How very sad that this atmospheric gem is closing. gorgeous!
Lovely venue where we also had a romantic Valentine dinner and wanted to get back one more time prior to closing. It was a lovely day so having the windows flung open made it very pleasant. The food was delicious especially the lobster summer roll (though extremely pricey at $19). My husband greatly enjoyed the striped bass which was a generous serving and my steamed lobster was also excellent but the cost of $44 didn't seem commensurate with the very tiny portion. We were also surprised that $4 was added to the price of each of our entrees (increasing the price of small lobster dinner to $48!) because the coconut rice was added to each of our meals without the waiter mentioning it first. Though scrumptious and not to be missed calorie-wise we wold have liked to have the choice to order and split one serving. Still overall a very enjoyable experience and look forward to an opening in a new location.
The food was outstanding and the service was perfect.
Thanks again for the nice surprise for my wife's birthday!
