Best of the UWS (a la RGB's best of LES tour)
RGB has a great tour for the lower east side (Russ & Daughters, Kossars, etc.). Does anyone have an equivalent tour for the Upper West Side? Obviously, there is Zabars, Grom, H&H, Barney Greengrass, but what else is out there that I'm missing? I'm forever indebted to RGB...
Add Jacques Torres. And even Beard Papa, if you like that sort of thing.
Agreed with adding Fairway and Citarella. DH loves the Super Taco truck!
Start at Grandaisy bakery on 72nd and B'way and try the pizza bianca and whatever else might appeal. (Check out Grey's Papaya next door for hot dogs.)
Walk a block up Amsterdam to Jacques Torres chocolates
Head west to Broadway to check out Fairway and Citarella. Don’t miss Fairway upstairs for cooking equipment at very good prices with a very knowledgeable staff.
Keep walking north on Broadway to Zabars, passing Grom, Beard Papa, and H&H on the way. Then over to Barney Greengrass at Amsterdam and 86th Street.
Don’t know where specifcally—or when—about the Super Taco Truck; maybe someone else can add more info.
Add the new Grandaisy Bakery on 72nd off of Amsterdam for a slice of potatoe/rosemary pizza. And I think Absolute Bagels on B'way around 106 are the best bagels on the UWS.
