The Tin Building by Chef Jean-Georges at the Seaport

New York City’s newest culinary destination is now open at the famous Seaport - the Tin Building by Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

This week I attended the opening party for the newly minted marketplace located at Pier 17 in lower Manhattan. More than 1,200 guests including culinary masters and influencers joined me to celebrate. The 53,000 square-foot building houses six restaurants, six fast-casual counters, four bars, a private dining room, a central grocery, pantry shops, and so much more. There were entertainers and performances at every turn - chefs on stilts, a Shamisen violinist, Japanese artists, and an opening scene of "newsies" who greeted attendees with Tin Building newspapers.

It was the party of the year at the reimagined Tin Building! Enjoy these photos.
