Whole Foods Bowery

Crepe Suzette | Mar 29, 200705:42 PM     16

So just came back from an hour perusing the new Whole Foods...and there were TONS of samples! Tried almond croissant, maple sausage, potato latke, granola, sharp cheddar, manchego, gouda, avocado roll...

The salad bar is pretty similar to Union Square, but a bit larger - 4 bars instead of 3. And there is a separate station with dolmadakia, hummus, olives, etc. There is also a chili station, a french fry station with lots of different sauces available, a truffle station, ice cream from il laboratorio...the list goes on. The Fromagerie is pretty impressive...there is an area where you can blend cheese with dried fruits or nuts of your choice..and of course there is aging room complete with waterfall.

Anyway I am thrilled with the glorious 71,000 sq ft - particularly since i've lived in the barren wasteland of Chrystie st for a year now and have never found a suitable grocery!

Also...line system is automated like the new system in union square - moved v quickly tonight but it was not particularly crowded at 7 pm.

what do others think of the nw WF?
