We're like magpies this week, gathering ingredients and treats from all our favorite specialty food stores in anticipation of company this weekend. After all, the only thing better than making a great new food discovery is sharing it with loved ones. A little schlepping is worth some delicious meals.
As we flitted from store to store, adding to our shopping bags, we wondered if there are even more great foodie shops that we're missing out on. What are your favorite NYC specialty food stores - the places where you never fail to walk out with something intriguing and lovely?
After the jump, some of ours.
