Grand Central Market revisited

I'm due for a final dash around Grand Central Market before packing up and heading east later this month. The Market is going through a major transformation (like me!), and the vendors are not as familiar as they were on earlier visits. My last documented visit is three years ago (click here for that Roast To Go post), and things are definitely changing. I met a friend to catch up while exploring the new food options.

Eggslut is one of the newbies, and they are creating quite a buzz with their cheeky name and bold foods. This is the Gaucho sandwich, with tri-tip steak, over-easy egg, chimichurri, red onions, and arugula on a brioche bun. YUM!! It's a can't-put-it-down sandwich, both because it is a bit messy and super delicious!

For dessert, we lapped around a few stalls, and I spotted this strawberry-rhubarb pie from Valerie. I scored on the corner slice! I almost got another to take home; it was that good. Her chocolates are supposed to be quite famous, but I'll have to imagine that flavor.

It was great fun catching up with a good friend and with what's happening at the Market. Take a stroll yourself to see what all is going on there.
