Hard-to-find things on the UWS
I've been to Fairway, Food Emporium, Balducci's. I'd like to keep to my area.
Shocking as it may seem, I am having one heckuva time finding Su-Ni Armenian String Cheese, Applewood Smoked Cheddar, Grafton smoked cheddar, pony bottles of 6- 8 pak Coca Cola, dried California-style apricots in a soft plastic envelope packet (not a box).
Have you tried Citarella - right next to Fairway - I've bought those bottles of coke there ... well, actually, at the one on the UES, and I do think the UWS one has a smaller selection - but worth checking out if you haven't.
Also worth trying Zabar's for the cheeses ....
