Favourite fine food shop in Manhattan

I am coming to New York for a week of restaurant extravaganza... however I would like to bring back home some fine foodie souveniers.

What would be the best choice (or at least your favourite) for a specialized fine food/wine/small cookware shop with good choice (pls. not a dept. store)

Location - prefrebly midtown east but for a nice place I am willing to invest a cab ride...

  1. For baked goods, Greenberg's

      1. Bridge Kitchenware is my favorite cookware store and it is in Midtown. Note that the entrance is on the side street. There are a number of good chocolate stores in midtown - Marcolini, Teuscher come to mind. Sherry Lehman (wine) is on Park Avenue and maybe 58th or 59th Street. Can't think of any gourmet food stores in the area off hand.

          1. Murray's Cheese...not Midtown East, but it's worth the hike
