Whenever I?m in this area and doing some major shopping, I love coming here for a quick bite to eat. Although sometimes it?s not that quick because a lot of people go here, it?s still my ?go to? place. Everything not only looks delicious here but also taste really excellent as well. It?s definitely something I couldn?t afford to do everyday, but maybe once a month or more, I splurge a little, and I?m so delighted when I do. I could be really picky with fruit. If it?s not in a clean place I won?t consider having any. Everything is so clean and fresh looking. The desserts are so scrumptious too. Their sandwiches, desserts (which sometimes are from other places), fruit, and even their coffee are all delicious. It?s definitely a place to stop by even if you are a tourist because you could try things from other places all in this one place. I can?t wait until the next time I go to this place. Mmmmm? what will I get? The cheeses are delicious too! Maybe some chocolate, cheese, and fruit? Yummy!

I consider myself to be a very good judge of quality gourmet products. Got a shipment of smoked salmon for christmas which was substandard by any any accounts. Guests barely touched it. Texture was mushy, color was neon orange, flavor was flat. My usual haunts are Zabars, Barney Greengrass, Russ & daughters, etc, so I think I am a reliable judge.

I went to the store, ordered and espresso, waited while at least 5 other customers who were behind me in the que received their drinks. When I inquired about my beverage, was treated to a scowl finally what appeared to be leftover espresso! Never going back and telling all my friends.

If I lived in NY I'd want to shop here all the time! However, I think the prices would probably cause me to go bankrupt but I'd sure be in culinary heaven. Everything from the baked goods to the deli foods is mouth watering. The place gets a little too crowded so at times it was tough to navigate through the aisles. There's no place to sit down so if you want to eat some of your food you'll have to stand at the counter along with the numerous other friendly patrons.

If I could give a 11/10, I would. Yes, it's expensive, but good stuff comes with a price. But I would say, with this kind of service, atmosphere, and quality, I don't mind paying an arm and a leg. Simply spectacular. The cakes and cookies are so pretty that I almost feel bad eating it. Choices for meat and deli are wonderful. The best is, no matter how crazy you want to go, they will fulfill your indulgence: caviar, truffles, foie gras, exotic spices, fresh juices...you name it, they have it. the only cons: the shoppers. This place is often crowded with snobbish, unfriendly shoppers -- especially when you are in front of them in the deli line.
