Revisit: The Gansevoort Market in the Meat Packing District

After a visit at The Whitney Museum, Jodi, her cousin Jessica and myself decided to get some lunch at The Gansevoort Market, a block away. I like that place, moreover the concept, allowing patrons to try a wide variety of food. But I admit that this time, our first choice was a mistake: we stopped by M Terranean, a place serving Mediterranean cuisine.

After Jessica and Jodi ordered their dishes, I, for once, could not decide what to order as each time I was asking for something, they did not have it. No falafel. No bulgur or couscous and only rice. No pita and only wraps. No lamb. Seriously? It was only twelve!!! Jessica ended up with a vegetable wrap that she loved.

Jodi with a roasted vegetable salad that did not look appetizing and was blend.

This place was very disappointing and I thought that the salad was pricey for what it was.

So I roamed around and ended up at The meatball Guys. And you know what? It was a blessing! They serve some giant meatballs that are 3.5 oz each and you can pick between beef or turkey. I decided to try both and picked sliders instead of the sandwich, allowing me to not only try different meatballs, but also different sauces. Here is what I got:

Turkey meatball with buffalo sauce and mozzarella.

Beef meatball with ragu sauce and mozzarella.

Both meatballs were fantastic: nice texture, tasty and not dry. The bread was delightfully crispy from being toasted and the sauces were spectacular, especially the buffalo that was quite spicy, but I could not stop eating it. 

I really loved The Meatball Guys: the food was delicious and I love the fact that you can make variations of it by switching cheese or sauces each time you go. It is messy to eat, but so good! And yes, I will surely go back!

But wait! It is not the end of the post! We could not end up our lunch without having dessert. So, after a little walk on the high line, we ended up at Bryant Park and decided to go to Maison Kayser.

There, I got my usual double espresso, that was served with a small financier.

Jodi chose their Cocorico pastry that is made with coconut and passion fruit. She did not really like it and I have to admit that I did not try it as I do no really like passion fruit.

On my side, I went for the chocolate tart, my second choice as they did not have the chestnut tart I was looking for to try. 

The chocolate tart was fantastic and I recommend it if you are a dark chocolate lover. And guess what? There is a truffle on top.

I like Maison Kayser and a little bird tells me that I will go back there soon...

So this was some good eating with of course the primary purpose of the day the visit of the museum...Sure...

Enjoy (I did)!
