Gotham West

GOTHAM WEST MARKET

600 11th Ave New York NY 10036
(212) 582-7940

It’s hard to please everyone on a group night out, but Gotham West Market makes life easier with a broad range of topflight food and drink. This may be a food court, but it’s built to Manhattan standards. Blackened steel and concrete floors provide an industrial-chic sheen for a full block’s worth of culinary gems. Take a moment to center yourself when you come in. There’s a lot to choose from. Send an emissary to claim some bench space under the glamorous glow of exposed bulbs. You’ll track down drinks for your table. At classic tapas spot El Colmado they have beer, wine, and cava (sparkling Spanish wine) on tap, conveniently available by the pitcher. Or maybe it’s time for a cocktail. The crew at The Cannibal will hook you up with something creative like the Antihero’s amaretto, lemon, egg, and cherry. Your crowd will be feeling upbeat, as a pop and indie soundtrack keeps energy levels high. Now it’s decision time. Maybe some comfort food like tacos from Genuine Roadside, or a grilled veggie sammy from Court Street Grocers? It may be hard to say no to ramen, however. The gaijin king of Japanese soup, Ivan Orkin, has a “Slurp Shop” counter that turns out super-refined bowls. You’ll find depth aplenty: his recipe for Shio Ramen runs 36 pages long. Some nights you really can make everybody happy.
