Anyone know of a good store to buy dried morels of decent quality at a decent price in NYC? It's not something I ever get so would appreciate input from anyone who would know.
Whole Foods or the Greenmarkets (there is typically at least one person at them selling dried mushrooms)
I just bought very nice and delicious dried morels at Dean and Deluca. I bought 3/4 ounce worth, it was $11.00. 3/4 ounce is about 3/4 cup. They were fantastic in a smoked whitefish chowder.
Don't forget to check where the mushrooms come from...
Fairway. If it's convenient, you might try the mushroom people at the Union Square Greenmarket.
Manhattan Fruit Exchange at the Chelsea Market has some of the best prices I've seen anywhere for dried mushrooms.
Pretty much any major (but decent - not, like, Key Foods) supermarket. Whole Foods usually has them, and is much cheaper than, say, Dean & Deluca.
I found dried morels for the best prices on ebay. There are "shroomers" that regularly sell them there, and they are of very high quality. Read the feedback to make sure you're getting a high quality seller.
That could be a source. Would prefer to see what I'm buying though, so if there's a place in town where I could get some, I'd like to know it.
