Hard-to-find things on the UWS

idia Sep 3, 2007 03:21 PM

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).
What gives?

    Bottles of Coke are hiding in the rack area near spices and imported beers. I've lived here for over a year and just discovered the soda section. For the other items, I'm afraid I can't help; I've found the UWS lacking in certain items as well.

      The UWS is ideal for me in so many ways... but hard-to-find food stuffs is still a problem. I'm surprised, though, about not finding the Grafton smoked cheddar. I'd try Zabars or ask at the Fairway cheese counter.

      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 ....
