W. 30's and 9th Avenue

I just moved to this neighbourhood. Any suggestions of good places to eat for Thai, Japanese, French, Pizza, American, Mexican/Spanish, anything? Also, suggestions of good grocery stores/markets and bakeries? Looking for cheap eats to moderately expensive ($20-$30). Take out to dine in to delivery.
Especially interested in suggestions of grocery stores....I live near a Gristedes and hate the produce quality.

Many Thanks!
