I will be entertaining a group of chefs from London who work in a very high-end restaurant. We have all been to the classic gourmet shops around town: Russ & Daughters, Zabar's, Dean & DeLuca, Murray's, Kalustyan's, Chelsea Market, Eataly, Despana, etc. We've also done the classics like hot dog, halal cart, pastrami sandwich, pizza and whatnot. And all the great top 50 restaurants.
The only place I haven't been yet is Union Sq Greenmarket.
What I am looking for are unique, more off the beaten path type of stuff. I don't want to venture too far out of Manhattan, since they are only around for a couple of days and have their own schedule to worry about. But I do want some ideas and I want them to be worth their time. Some people have said that we've "hit all the best spots", but I refuse to believe that. I want some real food adventures, some great spots…the best of the best.
