What To Eat (And Skip) At The Tin Building By Jean-Georges
Here's what we think of all the places at the massive Seaport food hall from Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
House of the Red Pearl
House of the Red Pearl is a Chinese-inspired place in the Tin Building by Jean-Georges. The decor is cheesy, but the duck with perfectly-crisped skin will inspire repeat visits.
Unsurprisingly, the French restaurant at a food hall by Jean-Georges Vongerichten is worth checking out. Come here for a casual date and share some escargots, but skip the burger.
The Frenchman's Dough
The food at this Italian restaurant in the Tin Building is a mixed bag. We’re fans of the fried calamari blanketed with parm, but you should go elsewhere for pizza.
The tacos at the Tin Building are disappointing. Try another restaurant at this Jean-Georges food hall instead.
Seeds & Weeds
Seed & Weeds is the only place to eat in the Tin Building with views of the East River. You'll enjoy their vegan and vegetarian dishes even if you're an avid meat eater.
Pâtisserie at Tin Building
Stop by this Seaport spot for a cookie, pie, or mixed berry étoile stuffed with jam, custard, and other fillings.
Bakery at Tin Building
Tired of making sandwiches at home with Wonder Bread? Dramatically improve your lunch by picking up a seeded sourdough loaf at the Bakery at Tin Building.
Fulton Fish Co.
This seafood counter with a huge raw bar in the Tin Building by Jean-Georges is great for some oysters followed by something greasy like a salad with fried clams and shrimp.
Crêpes and Dosas at Tin Building
This little station on the first floor of the Tin Building serves sweet and savory dosas and crêpes, with some unique options like vanilla sponge cake with almond paste and meringue.
T Café is where to go for something with caffeine at the Tin Building. This Seaport coffee shop is also good for a lighter breakfast or lunch.
Skikku is your best option if you want a relaxing break from all the people-dodging you’ll be doing at the Tin Building. The sushi is high-quality, and the rolls have interesting components.
Sandwich & Salad at Tin Building
Don't dismiss this station at the Tin Building as just another place to grab a generic salad or sandwich. The roast beef sandwich is one of the best we've had.
The sandwiches at this create-your-own breakfast sandwich counter at the Tin Building are big and come stuffed with a lot of fluffy eggs.
Big Gay Ice Cream
Big Gay Ice Cream specializes in excellent soft serve while also having La Newyorkina’s most popular paleta flavors on deck.
For a relatively cheap place with ample space and good drinks, I’m not complaining. For the Seaport, it’s definitely a good option. Put this restaurant anywhere else though, and we’d keep on walking.
10 Corso Como
10 Corso Como is a big Italian restaurant at the Seaport with a memorable space and much less memorable food.
Thai Farm Kitchen
Thai Farm Kitchen’s Seaport location serves some of the best Thai food in Manhattan.
On the roof of Pier 17 in the Seaport District, The Greens is a big outdoor space where you can drink while playing lawn games with a group.
