Midtown
Joining midtown marketplaces like Gotham West Market and Brooklyn Fare, this grocery-cum-café highlights traditional Greek food and wine in Murray Hill. Stations set throughout the stone-and-wood space include a yogurt bar—rigged with liquid nitrogen for à la minute frozen treats—a meze counter (tabouli, tzatziki) and prepared-food items, like beef moussaka, grilled lamb chops and lavraki (rosemary-flecked sea bass). Phyllo dough is made in-house for pastries such as baklava, tyropita (stuffed with feta and local eggs) and galaktoboureko (filled with vanilla-bean–semolina custard). Along with takeout and delivery, shoppers have the option to dine at a communal wood table or at the wine bar, offering Mediterranean vino, charcuterie and house-baked breads. Food demonstrations, including guest-chef events, wine tutorials and cooking classes, are held daily at the center of the market.

Located in Tudor City, Blue Olive Market is a new Greek and Mediterranean-inspired eatery and market offering scratch-made prepared foods and gourmet products. But, I was on a mission. I heard that they were making a Frozen Greek Yogurt, different from anything else out there. You can custom order your own by choosing your Greek Yogurt and toppings, or, select one of their combinations off the menu. Right away, I saw Rosemary and Dried Fig and knew that was the one I'd be ordering. You can read the rest of my review with photos here: sprungonfood.com/2014/02/11/blue-olive-market
