Wandering around Zabar's and Chelsea Market made me realize one thing ...
If you haven't heard of Zabar's it is a gourmet food market, and kitchen tools/gadget store, as well as a deli/coffee shop. Over 35,000 people per week visit Zabar's, and for good reason. The olive and cheese sections alone (pictures only show part of the wonder) blow my mind.
Also, like all groceries seem to be in the US, the cheese is insanely CHEAP! We picked up a couple blocks to try, along with some crackers and meat, and went to central park to people watch and snack.
The sun was shining all week in NY (with the exception of Thursday), and on this particular day, it felt like a hot summer day. I think I even got a bit of a tan.
Chelsea Market is another foodie paradise. The bottom floor is a food court/ food mall, and the higher floors have offices for companies such as The Food Network, and Google. Iron Chef America is filmed in Chelsea Market, as well Emeril Live, and other shows.
Does your city have good food markets, and kitchen gadget stores?
My city is not really a "foodie" city. I would kill for my city to get a Sur La Table, but I would even settle for William's Sonoma.
