The location of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain’s planned 100,000-square-foot food hall will be announced in the next few weeks, according to Bourdain’s business partner.

The food hall, known as Bourdain Market, is slated to open in early 2016 and will be twice as big as Mario Batali’s Eataly near Madison Square Park. Stephen Alesch and Robin Standefer of New York design firm Roman and Williams are designing the market.

The project is estimated to cost anywhere from $20 million to in excess of $30 million, with Bourdain’s business partner Stephen Werther noting “there were more people willing to finance it than we need,” according to Curbed.

The market will house around 100 different vendors serving food from around the world and feature a farmers’ market, butchery, oyster bar, tapas bar and a rooftop beer garden, Werther said.

Bourdain purchased a 2,250-square-foot condo in Carnegie Hill Tower at 40 East 94th Street for $3.35 million last year. [Curbed] – Rey Mashayekhi
