Good Places to Eat in Essex
[Photographs: Robyn Lee, unless otherwise noted]
The Essex Street Market is one of those New York quintessential types of places—a mix of old Lower East Side and the new, immigrant and hip. There's a premium meat butcher that sells $30/pound sausage but also $5/pound "pork chops for the people, " right around the corner from a decades-old fish market, a fancy taco stand, a Latin American grocery, and so on. For groceries, the market is a one-stop-shop, and if you're hungry on the Lower East Side, it's a destination lunch spot. There's no shortage of places to eat in the neighborhood, but Essex Street's offerings are consistently delicious.
Last year Dorie Greenspan, the market's newest resident, gave us a three hour tour of the market through her eyes. Consider this post the Cliff's Notes version, a quick and dirty guide to what you should be eating for lunch right now, whether you're passing through or in for some serious shopping.
Seating is limited in the market, but a few public tables line the northern wall, and several vendors have their own (tiny) eating areas. But most of this food is designed to be eaten on the move—sandwiches, tacos, and the like.
The Essex Street Market is open Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
