The one thing that could get us more excited for the opening of the Westfield World Trade Center mall? The giant food hall that your boyfriend Anthony Bourdain is currently working on might be anchoring the complex's dining offerings. Our sister site Eater NY reports that the long-rumored project will likely open later this year.
The market, whose location has yet to be confirmed, will feature 40 to 50 food stalls, maybe including cult favorite Xi'an Famous Foods. Though nothing else is set in store, we do know it'll be crazy close to your dad Mario Batali's Eataly outpost, slated for just next door.
