Going to NYC in early November. I already have most of my eating plans nailed down.
I want to know what I should do/see in NYC in relation to food other than eating it. What specialty shops/markets should I visit ? (ie. cheese shops, oil shops, cookware shops, ethnic food stores)
Any food related walking tours recommended?
Im going to the James Beard Foundation to look around. Is it worth it?
Can anyone tell me a nice wine shop to stop in for a glass of wine and small bite to eat while exploring the city. I will be all over Manhattan walking around, so any location is fine. (Home base is Midtown East)
Much thanks to my fellow hounders.
