Pearl River Mart Foods in the News: NY Times, Progressive Grocer, Eater, TONY
As you might have heard, Pearl River Mart Foods is now open! Thanks to all the media outlets, journalists, and photographers who reported on the opening.
“The Asian emporium Pearl River Mart spun off a branch of its Broadway flagship in the Chelsea Market three years ago. Now it is adding a food market on the lower level of the market.”
“Pearl River Mart Foods will offer a rotating collection of classic and new food items from across Asia, created by rising Asian-American chefs and brands.”
“Pearl River Mart Foods will be the first grocery store in NYC to sell specialty items like chili oils and sauces from the city’s cool-kid Asian restaurants like Taiwanese hotspot 886 and critically-acclaimed Sichuan dry pot specialists MáLà Project. There’s also three up-and-coming food vendors situated in an expansive kitchen space within the food mart selling baos, kimbap, and bubble tea to customers.”
“Pearl River Mart Foods is a love letter to Asian food in New York,” says Pearl River President Joanne Kwong, in a released statement. “For 49 years, my in-laws Mr. and Mrs. Chen have quietly and steadily supported local businesses in New York City, especially in our beloved Chinatown.”
