Stopped into this just-opened grocery store today on my lunch hour. They aren't fully stocked yet, but according to the owner will be by Friday.

I did not have time to do a thorough review of the entire store, but my impressions so far are of an fancy grocery, heavy on the European and expensive American dry goods (chocolates, condiments, biscuits, Trotter's To Go products, etc) and other upscale foodstuffs (Plugra butter, Neuske bacon), with some surprises that make it interesting, and suggest that their buyers know a bit about food and are not just limiting themselves to luxury items (They stock spinach and feta pies and baba gannoush from Middle Eastern bakery on Foster. I had the pies for lunch--quite tasty.)

Their deli will open soon, and I'm looking forward to seeing what type of soups and sandwiches will be on offer. They also sell beer, wine and liquor; again, the upscale brands (Grey Goose vodka, for example) are prominently displayed, and their beer selection runs toward microbrews. I took a glance at their Italian wines--nothing spectacular, but nothing to be ashamed of, either.

Further reviews forthcoming.
