        I know I've seen them at the one on Broadway...I think that's right...it's the one right by Balthazar.

      Quaker makes white grits as well. I have a jar at home. I don't remember exactly where I bought them, but I'd think almost any decent-sized supermarket would have them in the breakfast foods aisle.

        Pathmark or any grocery store above 96th Street. I think even Fairway carries them.

          i've had a really hard time finding quaker grits...but fortunately the corner bodega in my neighborhood carries 'em. Papa and Sons at flatbush avenue and lincoln road. FYI.

            I can tell you where NOT to look for them - Wholefoods Union Square, Citarella, Jefferson Market, Garden of Eden (14th st), Gourmet Garage, Gristedes. Yes, I too have been in seach - although not a hot enough pursuit to leave my neighborhood.

            I'm thinking about ordering from Hoppin' John's - a place in Charleston, SC known for their grits.

              I think I've seen them at the Food Emporium on 14th street.

                I was in Gristedes on 14th just about 5 minutes ago, and in fact, they DO carry quaker oats grits! Don't I feel silly!! They must have been sold out when I went about a month ago.

                Thanks for the Food Emporium tip!

                They are on the bottom shelf of the Pathmark in Harlem. 10 minutes from midtown folks!

                  Hoppin' John grits are excellent. Very aromatic by comparison to Quaker. I also like Anson Mills. I do not like Red Mills. Their grits are yellow and probably geared more for polenta.

                  In NYC you can often sit down for a breakfast of grits and baco nat Puerto Rican diners.

                  You know who used to carry Hoppin' John grits in the refrigerator section -- and this just adds another layer of sorrow -- is Kurowycky. Man, I miss that place.

                    I have bought the organic white corn grits before at Life Thyme over on 6th Ave between 8th & 9th.
