You Can Now Check Out the New Jean-Georges Food Hall at the Renovated Tin Building
Jean-Georges Vongerichten is at it again. But this time it’s not just one restaurant — it’s a bunch, housed in the 53,000-square-foot remodeled Tin Building at the Seaport. Specifically: six full-service eateries, six quick-service counters, four bars and tons of retail and private dining options.
The historic space at 96 South Street had its soft opening earlier this month, and the celebrity chef is planning a fall preview that includes several vendors designed to give you a sampling of all kinds of dishes.
The restaurants include:
- T.Brasserie, a Belle Époque-style French bistro
- Fulton Fish Co., a seafood dining counter with full raw bar
- Shikku, an intimate sushi and sake restaurant
- Seeds & Weeds, a seasonal vegetarian and vegan restaurant with views of the Brooklyn Bridge
- The Frenchman’s Dough, a traditional Italian restaurant with a French twist
- House of the Red Pearl, a fine-dining restaurant serving Chinese-inspired dishes
The building was once home to the Fulton Street Fish Market, which handled fresh food for the whole city, but was beset by a huge fire in 1995 and fell into disrepair before finally getting renovated in recent years.
The Tin Building currently has limited hours: Thursday to Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
