There's plenty to eat near the Armory Show, which takes place March 6–9 on the west side of Manhattan at Piers 92 and 94. The international art fair annually attracts tens of thousands of art dealers, artists and art lovers who can't subsist on eye candy alone. When it comes time to forage for food, the far western frontier of Midtown is not the culinary desert it used to be. There's elevated Asian fare at Totto Ramen and Danji and no-nonsense, juicy barbecue at Daisy May's. Then there's Print, a stylish, farm-to-table operation in the boutique hotel Ink48. Variously called Hell's Kitchen, Clinton and Midtown West, the area is increasingly studded with luxury and corporate high-rises, which accounts for improved dining options like the stimulating newcomer Gotham West Market, an industrial bazaar of eight diverse purveyors under one roof.
