Whole Foods Tribeca
In New York City's Tribeca neighborhood, we were in dire need of a decent grocery store. Before last week, all we really had was a terrible Food Emporium, which was small & dirty with a horrible selection and high prices. But on July 9th the long awaited and hyped Whole Foods opened up! This is second largest Whole Foods in NYC at 70,000 square feet.
It has an incredible selection of groceries and a huge prepared foods section complete with a sushi bar, pizza station, shwarma bar, and several buffet style stations. One of the stations has salad items, there is a desert bar, Indian food, Italian food and even a chicken wing section.
But as you can see, one of the most remarkable features of this store is it's beer selection. There is a 20 foot+ long refrigerated case of just magnums of chimay and ale beer from all over the world. There is a huge dairy style case of just 6-packs. and an unrefrigerated section of various large bottles of all types of stuff.
I know that the Bowery Whole Foods on the lower east side has a whole beer store with a separate entrance. But this new Tribeca outpost is walking distance from the Rosenblog Residence. Just what I needed, another excuse to drink more beer! It's like a beer candy store... the selection is staggering. Way to go, organic guys.
