Food shoppers flock from all over town to stock up at this beloved local supermarket chain. The five NYC locations—Harlem, UWS, UES, Red Hook and Douglaston—offer the type of everyman prices you won't find at Whole Foods, but the quality is still top-notch. You'll find all the basics, plus excellent speciality departments with international cheeses, imported foods, kosher items and more. A walk-in cold room (jackets provided!) at the Harlem market is packed with meats and a decent beer selection, and there is a popular café and steakhouse on the second floor of the UWS store.

This place does have pretty much everything that you could need on a grocery shop, but the nonsensical layout of the store is hugely frustrating. The isles are stacked really tall so you cant reference where you are, items aren't grouped as you'd expect them to be, and I'm yet to find out how to get upstairs without taking the elevator. It's constantly busy in here too, expect queues. Though in fairness, they do move pretty quickly. The outdoor flower market is a nice little touch, but I find the flowers don't last very long.
