H Mart, a popular chain of Korean markets, looks like it’s on its way to 2828 Broadway, the former home of D’Agostino at the corner of 110th Street and Broadway.
We had been hearing for months that the D’Ag would be replaced by a Korean specialty market — and we even called H Mart — but they had no news for us. But Dave Cook of the food blog Eating in Translation saw the package above, a confirmation that the famed market is on its way.
The New Jersey-based chain has locations in New York, Canada and London too. For people who like Korean food, it’s a dream come true. It sells packaged and prepared Asian foods, with a wide variety of meat and fish. The New Jersey store right across the GW Bridge has fresh fruits and vegetables too, some of which is difficult to find in standard Western supermarkets.
An H Mart employee at the store’s Koreatown location did not have information on the new store.
