Jefferson Market re-opening

Good news: looks like they're gonna be open once again. I have no idea what the new iteration will be like, and if it's the same owners or new ones. Regardless, it'll be nice to have that option once again.

  1. The good news is the reopening is tomorrow (2/13). The bad news is it will be run by Gristede's

    Here's more info from The Villager...

      Ah, well the Gristedes thing explains everything: we just had a rotisserie chicken from there. It was terrible - bone dry and flavorless. Sounds like a Gristedes type of product. Hopefully it was just an anomaly though, and their stuff is better than that.

    2. I finally got a chance to stop in this week. I was specifically looking for grated parmigiano reggiano. I found it among the small cheese selection, and the price was 36 dollars (yikes!) a pound. The store was virtually empty. It just looks like a small version of a typical Gristede's. Limited selection and sky-high prices. I went to Citarella, which by the way was packed with customers, and bought the cheese for $16 a pound. Items like dijon mustard which I get in huge jars at Citarella were the same price for tiny jars at Jefferson. This place bears no similarity to the former Jefferson Market, which is really a shame. They don't seem to have a clue.
