Is everyone in NYC excited about going to spin-offs of Seattle restaurants at the new Nordstrom flagship store in Midtown?!  :ph43r:


It may have been Camelot for Jack and Jacqueline
But on the Che Guevara highway filling up with gasoline
Fidel Castro's brother spies a rich lady who's crying
Over luxury's dissapointment
So he walks over and he's trying
To sympathize with her, but thinks that he should warn her
That the Thirld World is just around the corner

Hard to say what is more exciting. An imported pizza place or dining on 57th and broadway

Tom Douglas pizza sucks, even by Seattle standards, so...

Although someone should tell her you can get a nonstop roundtrip for under $400 to Seattle...

I'm more excited (if it can be called excitement) about Wegman's.

I don't believe it will live up to the hype for you. I say this as someone who both knows a lot about food retail for professional reasons and who is an ingredient fetishist in the kitchen.

It's much better than the average suburban supermarket, but cant compare to what us Hunter gathers get in the city.

Lots of prepackaged private label marinaded meats etc.

Sorta like a Stew Leonard's then.

 

I'm certain it won't make me stop going to farmer's market, Formaggio Essex, Pain d'Avignon, The Mercato once I start getting over there, Netcost, D'artagnan's website, winter visits to Chinatown supermarkets, et al.

Pretty good comp. Bigger box, maybe a better private label line.

They can't compete with Breakfast at Tiffany's. But probably a much easier reservation.
