Spice Market-Restaurant Review

The Spice Market, located in the Meat Packing District, is a really buzzy and trendy restaurant.  It is spread over two floors, but feels like one big room due to the fact the first floor overlooks the room below.  There is a good atmosphere throughout and decor is very interesting, it reminded me of an India Jones movie but done really well!

The menu is inspired by Southeast Asian street food, and they have a variety of Thai and Vietnamese items to choose from.  They have an excellent selection of curries and offer Bento boxes at lunch time.  The food is really good, we had the Vietnamese spring rolls and chicken skewers to start, followed by Cod with Malaysian chilli sauce and Vietnamese chicken curry, all of which was delicious. 

There is a lively bar where you can have pre and/or post dinner drinks.  You can also get small plates and appetizers at the bar if you just wanted something light with a few drinks.

I would definitely recommend making reservations for this restaurant as it gets extremely busy, but they do keep some tables open for walk-ins.  These are given out on a first come first served basis, so I would get there early if you want to make sure you get a table.

I love this restaurant and would highly recommend that you give it a go.  For more information and reservations, visit http://www.spicemarketnewyork.com/

P.S. For any Brits reading this they are opening a Spice Market in London.  If you go let me know what it's like!
