Eating my way through NYC
My mom and I ventured to Chelsea Market on 9th Avenue. Chelsea Market http://chelseamarket.com/retail/ is full of all kinds of eateries and markets. The smell of fish and seafood hits you as you walk into The Lobster Place.
Also available was a soup station featuring five or more soups. I took a cue from the crowd gathering around the clam chowder. I ladled the creamy potato and clam filled chowder into a paper soup cup. It was everything I hoped it would be. This popular New England chowder found in the north is not easily available in the South so it makes it even more of a treat.
My favorite olive oil was the chipotle olive oil. There were smoky notes and a lingering heat. My mom liked the fig and pear balsamic. You could say it was finger-licking good ha ha!
Chelsea Market is definitely a food emporium offering anything and everything your taste buds desire. Stay tuned for more great NYC food finds!
