I Love New York

A Chef’s Story

In 1985, Jean-Georges arrived in New York and went straight to the Fulton Fish Market, a then thriving hub of seafood in the heart of The Seaport. It was a trip that launched his career as one the world’s most renowned chefs, and in turn revolutionized the way New Yorkers eat forever. Best known for his dedication to fresh, local, and sustainable ingredients, the Tin Building is Jean-Georges’ tribute to the city that made him, and his opportunity to highlight the very best in food and hospitality it has to offer.

Restored and Reimagined

A one-of-a-kind Seaport journey

For nearly 200 years, fishmongers gathered by the waters of New York’s East River to sell seafood at The Fulton Fish Market. One of the largest wholesale seafood markets in the world, the Tin Building served as the backdrop to this melting pot of commerce and culture, supporting undocumented immigrants and entire families for generations. Built in 1907, the building survived blazes and storms, and outlived mayors and presidents, before its closure in 2005. Today, after more than eight years of meticulous restoration, the Tin Building begins a new chapter as New York’s culinary epicenter.
