Description: Highlighted in the national and local press, Spice Market, on the corner of 9th Avenue, is inspired by the street food that Jean-Georges Vongerichten enjoyed while traveling in Asia. Authentically uplifted versions of flavourful street foods are served family-style, with dishes arriving continuously throughout the meal for all to share. Spice Market also offers corporate and social dining for large groups in the restaurant, lounge, and intimate, semi-private alcove rooms.

Drinks in the bar are good. Each hand crafted -- not speedy service. Taste great, but not big drinks.

The food has always been great. Fun atmosphere.

Business dinner on a Monday night.
The place was crowded and despite our reservation we had to wait for 15mn to get our table.
The setting is nice, with Asian-inspired decoration. Lounge music is played very loud throughout the restaurant.
The menu is diversified (but essentially asian and fusion-based) and most of choices of dishes were rather pleasant and tasty.
Prices are in the upper average but there is still good value for money.
Staff were a bit over-stretched but they remained friendly.
Alla in all, a pleasant experience that would have been better if the music was played less loudly.

This restaurant is simply fantastic. I have been there for several different occasions, but latest with my family to celebrate a birthday.
The atmosphere is amazing, and very authentic.
The food is very tasteful, and is very well seasoned, without confusing your tastebuds. Everything on the menu is so good, that one visit simply isn't enough.
The only downside about the service, is the different arrivals of the dishes, meaning there could be up to 30 minutes between the first and the last dish being served, but they announce that as you order, so it is not an unexpected wait.
The restaurant is in two floors, with a very cozy lower floor with private, intimate seating options - perfect for a larger party of people, e.g. a birthday.
It is recommended to make a table reservation at least a couple of days ahead, and you do not want to sit too close to the entrance, given the traffic of people entering and leaving the restaurant.

At the top of the list of places we like to go in New York. Great atmosphere, great food, lots of energy, terrific service. This area of Manhattan is really booming and has some of the best restaurants in town. Check them out!
