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.
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.
