Gotham West Market in Hell's Kitchen has spawned a sister location, all the way in Fort Greene. The area around BAM could use some new options, and the 16,000-square-foot Gotham Market at The Ashland (the luxury residential building whose ground floor the market sits on at 590 Fulton St.) brings eight new options.

Lit by colorful glass chandeliers, there's a warmth to the space that's a welcome change to the industrial aesthetic that food halls tend to favor. There are four totally new restaurants: Apizza Regionale, serving regional Italian food and pies from John Stage, the founder of Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, who’s also behind Bar Granger, the market’s central cocktail and wine bar; rotisserie restaurant Flip Bird; and Southern smokehouse Mason Jar with 30 beers on tap. The market also has a rotating pop-up space, and its first tenant is Crown Heights’ Crabby Shack with several dishes like crab nachos exclusive to this location.

Two counters are still to come — Egg at the Bird, another Stage joint serving breakfast with housemade breads and Devocion coffee, and Spanish tapas and wines at Boqueria — but this is a good set to be getting on with.


Gotham Market at The Ashland is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. “until late.”
