Hope this isn't considered off-topic:
I'll be spending 6 months in NY later this year, and will be living close to Columbus Circle. Where are the best places to do food shopping? I know there is a Whole Foods in Columbus Circle - here in London Whole Foods is very expensive - is it the same in NYC? And is it worth it?
Other than that, where are the best places to shop for food and other groceries? My shopping habits are generally
- 1 big shop each month for heavy items/household/staples/canned goods, ideally delivered, and possibly bought online
- Weekly shop for fruit/veg/meat/fish - quality is important to me, and I don't mind paying a premium (within reason) for local/organic/great quality fresh food.
- Ocassional visits to specialist shops/markets for special treats - so for this, I don't mind travelling to other parts of the city and open to any suggestions.
Suggestions for any of these categories very much appreciated!
