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.
Gramercy is a small residential neighborhood filled with young families with children, dogs, or children and dogs, centered on Gramercy Park, a locked space between 20th and 21st Streets, Park Avenue South, and Third Avenue. The gated park is for the residents of the square, including the National Arts Club and the Gramercy Hotel. The lovely little street that abuts the park from the south, Irving Place, is the areaís own Restaurant Row.
