The food and cultural market is set to open in the second quarter of 2019 in The Fenway neighborhood
PRESS RELEASE / April 22, 2019 (Boston, MA) – As Time Out Market Boston prepares for its upcoming opening at 401 Park Drive in the heart of The Fenway neighborhood, the latest additions to its impressive culinary lineup have been revealed. Joining the curated mix of some of the city’s most acclaimed chefs and much-loved restaurateurs are BISq, Mamaleh’s Delicatessen, George Howell Coffee, Revolution Health Kitchen, Gelato & Chill and Michael Schlow, who will bring a second concept, dedicated to Roman-style pizza.
Time Out Market Boston is a food and cultural market bringing the best of the city under one roof: its best chefs, drinks and cultural experiences, based on editorial curation. Across over 25,000 square feet, there will be 15 eateries to choose from, plus two bars, a demo kitchen, a retail shop and local culture – all in one iconic space.
Previously announced chefs and restaurateurs to join Time Out Market Boston include Tony Maws, Peter Ungár, Union Square Donuts, anoush’ella as well as Tim and Nancy Cushman, who are taking over two kitchens for which the first details have now been revealed. One concept – Ms. Cluck’s Deluxe Chicken & Dumplings – will offer a creative spin on chicken and dumplings riffing on Asian cuisines; the second – gogo ya – will amp up the fun and look to reinvent the way we think about sushi by introducing Crispy Nori Sushi Tacos and Bento Bowls, some of which are inspired by o ya and Hojoko‘s signature sushi and sashimi.
The latest culinary additions announced today will complement this stellar roster and serve an incredibly diverse range of cuisines, affordable and accessible for all:

Time Out Market Boston will be a unique place you can visit in the morning, for lunch or dinner – or anytime in between – and enjoy great food, drinks and cultural experiences. It is where you can get a true taste of the city.
“Time Out Market is unlike anything else – it is the world’s first food and cultural market based wholly on editorial curation. Our local Time Out critics test and taste the best of the city and then we select and invite the very best to join Time Out Market. We are making fine dining casual, and casual extraordinary – we are dedicated to democratizing fine dining.”
The latest additions to the culinary lineup will join previously announced top chefs and restaurateurs, regarded as some of the best the city has to offer and serving an incredible range of cuisines at Time Out Market Boston: James Beard Award-winning Chef Tim and Advanced Sake Professional Nancy Cushman – known from their much acclaimed restaurants o ya and Hojoko Japanese Tavern – will take over two kitchens with a pair of Asian concepts; James Beard-Award winner Tony Maws will bring juicy Craigie Burger variations; Peter Ungár will serve up beautifully handcrafted dishes, known from his critically acclaimed Tasting Counter which he opened with this wife Ginhee Ungár in 2015; James Beard Award-winner Michael Schlow will focus on a menu full of simple, honest Italian ingredients; Union Square Donuts will offer delicious, artisan donuts and anoush’ella will bring Eastern Mediterranean flavors.
Following the immense success of Time Out Market Lisbon – which debuted in 2014 and is now the most popular attraction in the country with 3.9 million visitors in 2018 – the Boston location is one of five food and cultural markets Time Out Group will bring to North America in 2019. Besides Boston, Time Out Markets are also set to open in Miami, New York, Chicago and Montreal; followed later by Dubai (2020), London-Waterloo (2021) and Prague (2022). Together, these sites will span a total of nearly 275,000 sq ft, offer over 5,600 seats and excellent food from almost 170 top chefs and restaurateurs.
What connects all markets is a carefully curated mix of top chefs and restaurateurs, and unique culinary and cultural experiences – all housed in interesting buildings capturing the soul of the city. However, the execution of each Time Out Market is distinctly local to give a true taste of the city it is in: guests get to explore local culture and affordable fine dining from a variety of eateries and then come together at communal tables with family and friends to enjoy their meals on china with flatware.
Time Out Market is rooted in the heritage of Time Out – a magazine created at a kitchen table in London in 1968 to inspire and enable people to explore and enjoy the best of the city. Since then, Time Out editors have been writing about the best food, drink and cultural experiences to help people go out better; today, a global team of local expert journalists is curating the best things to do in 315 cities in 58 countries across websites, magazines, social media and live events. Now this curation is brought to life at Time Out Market.
