If you're a foodie and want to hit some good places, go to Greenwich village. If you're looking to stop and get a bite to eat or looking for some great ingredients at specialty shops, Bleecker Street offers some of the city's best.
- Murray's Cheese Shop – Hosts some of the best cured meats and cheeses around. You can also order online!
- Ottomanelli's Meat Market – Been a staple of the area for years. Much better place to purchase beef than your average grocery store.
- Rocco's Pastry & Espresso – If you need a good place to stop for a sweet and a coffee, go here. Also, if you're in the market for great homemade cookies instead of baking yours for Christmas, consider this bakery when looking. Again, hand-made sweets and pastries that will surely please. We had a canoli and cup of coffee this afternoon. Great way to tide us over waiting for our next gastro-delight tonight!!!
