Anthony Bourdain broke his reservation at Pier 57, moving the opening date back an additional two years.

The Bourdain’s Market planned for Pier 57 is now slated to open in 2019, Eater reported. It’s unclear why the opening date has been pushed back.

In September, the celebrity chef and television host signed a letter of intent to build a 155,000-square-foot marketplace with 100 domestic and international vendors on the pier’s main concourse and mezzanine. In March, developer RXR Realty was reportedly in talks with PNC Bank $225 million for its redevelopment of the pier, and construction of its planned 480,000-square-foot office and retail complex.

RXR and Youngwoo & Associates signed a 97-year lease  last year with the Hudson River Park Trust to construct the complex. The pier project is anchored by Google, which is set to take 225,000 square feet. . The complex will also feature an 80,000-square-foot rooftop public park. [Eater] Kathryn Brenzel
