Hunting for a Specific Spice Store in Manhattan (West 40s/50s)
Hi all! I'm hoping you can help me track down a spice store I read about in the last month or so on some site/blog, but can't remember for the life of me what the name of it was. The couple (random) things I remember from the article:
- in the West 40/50s in Manhattan
- either below or above a restaurant that the owners of the store also own
- only open a couple days of week, Wed - Friday I believe, and only for a couple hours of day
I remember looking at their website and seeing a 7 pepper blend I wanted to try. Anyone have any ideas of the store I'm talking about? My google searches have turned up nothing :(
Thanks in advance for any help!
It is definitely La Boite; Lior has a 7-pepper blend in addition to a lot of other spices. Though officially only open a few days, if you want to try on another day, you can check and see if he'd be around. He is starting to sell some spices around town; I saw some of his spices at Eataly, though it seemed to be more basic spices instead of his blends.
