Fresh Food Market and Deli is a rare experience in customer service! I contacted Mo from Indiana to schedule a breakfast deliveries for a seminar in NY. On the other end of the line I found a cordial, kind gentleman focused on customer satisfaction and a level of service that was astounding. Mo faxed menus and helped me plan for breakfast on 2 different days. When we had a catering glitch and needed lunch one day prior to our seminar, Mo came to our rescue. He encouraged me to make lunch choices that were delicious and economical, never overselling. (Rare in today’s market) Fresh Food Market is a simple, small store, but when you walk in Mo’s smile lights up the entire market. He treated me like family upon my arrival in NY and truly welcomed me to the city as if I were a long-time friend. I would not hesitate to recommend Mo and his store. He provides world class service, amazing food, and a customer experience that cannot be rivaled.
I got together with my companion Sabra E. at The Gray Dog for espresso when I was around the local area. I picked it for immaculate accommodation, yet it was a charming spot, alright with a clamoring, warm, villeinage vibe. We got a table and requested up at the counter. The barista was pleasant. I got a major mug of cappuccino, and it hit the spot on a drizzly day. I'm not a periodic espresso consumer, but rather I thought it was a decent glass, and I do love me some milk froth. Sabra requested a club sandwich and wasn't excessively content with it. It's conceivable this spot is preferable for espresso over for nourishment. It did feel more like a café than an eatery. Anyway, I was content with The Gray Dog and would visit again in case I'm ever needing an espresso place in this some portion of town. I preferred my cappuccino and had a beautiful time unwinding and making up for lost time with my companion.
This will be one of the last coffee shops that is untouched with "Yuppie Style" sensibilities. No pictures of fake New York hipsters with Hollywood stars on the walls and no retrofitted "biker chrome" decor that infiltrate your senses. Just a simple "get your eggs and coffee" joint with NORMAL people in a normal setting. If your too finicky or too picky about the food, go to the Upper East Side and pay for more style than sustenance. Landmarks food is simple, straight, to the point, and down right good food.
