High end grocery stores?

I am looking for high end grocery stores in MA or NH, for two reasons, shopping and working. I think that I am pretty familiar with most, any suggestions?

      Whole Foods of course, Formaggio's, Philbrick's, Butter's...

        Add to that Savenor's, possibly the highest end of the bunch. A good source for kobe beef, fresh-rendered goose fat and the like.

    2. Russo's and Wilson Farms might qualify. Some of the suggestions seem more like gourmet shops, rather than grocery stores. Are you looking for a place that will have staples and canned goods, or would a boutique or gourmet shop also qualify?

        Good point, I guess gourmet to high end grocery, leaning towards the gourmet end. Formaggio's and Dean & DeLuca are for me...

      2. Bo-Tes Imports, Norwell Center. Outstanding deli and grocery. Recently reviewed on TV Diner. Also has a very nice wine selection and knowledgeable owner.

        1. If you are looking for a great store russo's selection and prices cant be beat...You will not be coddled like whole foods here..But the prices are that good and the selection is better then whole foods.....
