Anthony Bourdain is opening a Blade Runner-inspired food market in NYC

By on July 26, 2015

Consequence of Sound reports that New York City will see the opening of a new food market in 2017. The project is headed by celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain and will feature 100,000 sq ft. of market that combines hawker-style food carts, farmer’s market, oyster bar and a beer garden. It all goes down in the recently renovated Pier 57 (called Superpier), and Bourdain is claiming it will take its inspiration from Blade Runner.

The noodles in those Blade Runner scenes have always looked pretty appetizing, and have definitely inspired a couple late night ventures into the real life Chinatown noodle shops that literally only exist for overnight workers’ lunch. Let’s just hope Bourdain’s venture keep’s those red-eye hours to truly match the atmosphere.

We tend to talk about Blade Runner quite a bit when it comes up, food related or otherwise. Here’s a behind the scenes’s look at Blade Runner’s model shop and an exclusive interview with Grace Jones about turning down a part in the iconic film.
