About 1897 Market

HMSHost’s exclusive 1897 Market, a distinctive urban gourmet marketplace, is an emporium for the senses where travelers can experience an epicurean immersion before jet-setting. Named for the year HMSHost was founded, then as the Van Noy Railway News business, the inspiration for 1897 Market comes from a lasting legacy and emerging food trends from around the world are infused into 1897 Market.

Eating at 1897 Market is a legitimate foodie experience with recipes using local and regional ingredients being crafted with multiple layers of professional culinary observation and hands-on effort.  A walk through the restaurant displays a tempting raw bar, spectacles of a mouth-watering carvery, an aromatic grill, and an enticing woodstone pizza oven. With a focus on quality and taste guests can enjoy starters like dirty mac & cheese, parmesan herb chicken tenders, and spicy shrimp toast. Featured entrée fare includes the likes of steak frites and bbq shrimp & grits made with local stone-ground cheddar grits.
