About Us

BLACKBARN is a story of worlds coming together: bound by a shared vision for a lifestyle defined by quality, comfort and worldly endeavors, Chef John Doherty came together with renowned interior designer Mark Zeff and his wife Kristen to fuse their food and retail concepts into a single environment at the Chelsea Market.

After spending a weekend in the aptly-named East Hampton home of interior designer Mark Zeff, Chef John Doherty found that the aesthetic matched the spirit of the restaurant he envisioned creating, and opened his NoMad eatery under the BLACKBARN name.

Meanwhile, Zeff and his wife Kristen opened their DUMBO, Brooklyn shop of homewares curated their travels across the world.

Bound by their shared vision, the trio have fused concepts into a single environment at BLACKBARN Chelsea Market.
