Hi all, moving to NYC from the windy city. After much consternation on neighborhoods I've taken a place in the 60s and 3rd (close to office but seemingly empty on ethnic hole in the wall eateries...diff topic). Since I'm new to the area and need to stock a kitchen - am hoping you guys can advise me on the best places for:
Fresh veg/fruit (local organic a big plus)
Cutlery/tools(in chicago we have Lake Street Cutlery in the restaurant supply district)
My bias tends toward places that are high on ingrediants/product and low on ambiance.
If you have suggestions in departments not listed above pls let me know...I gotta figure this place out somehow.
Thank you very much.
