UES - No Fairway, No Westside Market
If this is been covered before, can someone point me to the thread?
The UES has Eli's, A&V, Gourmet Garage - all overpriced. Why are there no stores like Fairway or Westside Market? Reading the UWS TJ thread, I don't understand why there isn't more of a market for TJs on the UES. We're so starved for a store like Fairway's.

Have you tried Citarella? I know they aren't cheap, but better, I think than the other UES places that you mention, and better than Food Emporium. They are cheaper than the nasty Pioneer near me for many things as well. Are there any particular kinds of foods that you are looking for, or just an all around market? We still have a number of good butchers around.
A&V often has excellent pries on produce.
I suspect that rent has more than a bit to do with all of this. It usually does!
