    You can shop around Chelsea Market and have the basket place put it together for you. BUT I'd rather get a basket from Lobel's. Nice!

    Another thought.....I received a basket of homemade ice cream, cones and a beautiful scoop from Manhattan Fruitier. It was put to good use and the best ice cream I have ever had.

      Although not NY-specific, Zingerman's (www.zingermans.com) does great food baskets.

        Dean and Deluca can do it. But, I recently put one together myself. Took only a few hours and full of all the stuff I wanted to put in it instead of what you are given in a pre-arranged basket.

              Thanks, tinymango!

              This ended up being perfect to send to a friend who's in homesick.
