New Food Emporium (Bridgemarket) competing with Citarella-type stores?

chowNYC | Nov 20, 2006 01:34 PM

Went to Food Emporium on Friday to check out the new store (Bridgemarket - 59th Street). They promoted this big re-opening in the area with handing out free NY Posts outside the store the last week. Totally different than the usual grocery store offerings they have, with a coffeeshop type area upstairs to boot. Chocolate counter, smoothies sold in the store, etc. Anyone else been there? Do you think it'll fare well or people won't give up their specialty stores?
