I'm craving a good macaroni and cheese and I can't face melting full priced fontina and cheddar from Murray's into my elbow macaroni. These discounted blocks of cheese should be great for mid-priced mac and cheese.
If you haven't discovered it already, Gourmet Garage has a trust worthy house brand that is priced more gently than the house brands at competitors Dean and Deluca and Zabars. I highly recommend Gourmet Garage Soho Blend coffee: full-bodied, smooth and crisp, and at $6.99 a pound, it's a reasonable indulgence.
Gourmet Garage has five locations in Manhattan. They carry a wide selection of produce (including organic), fish, meat, fresh pasta, dried fruit, nuts, sauces, condiments, breads and more.
Their "Shop Like a Chef" tag line isn't just marketing chatter. The chain was founded in Soho as a wholesaler serving restaurant chefs.
