Shopping for groceries in Manhattan can be a hassle or a pleasure. At the stores we have listed you will find plentiful produce and fresh foods, the finest prepared foods, and, often, eyebrow-raising prices. Most grocers will deliver your bags if you would rather not schlep them yourself. And many of these grocers will take phone orders--handy if you suddenly need to serve six for cocktails in four hours, or set up a breakfast pantry for a visiting vegan.
Soho ("SOuth of HOuston"), formerly home to New York Cityís great art scene, has been abandoned by many galleries for more trendy neighborhoods: Chelsea and the Meatpacking District. What remain are reliable restaurants and shops, a great new health club for members, Citibabes, and the Soho Grand Hotel. Whether you want to dress yourself or your home, shopping in Soho can suit you head to toe, or door knob to dining room.
