This is a town of foodies. Even my local Pioneer 'Super P' grocery store and my beloved West Side Market have better cheese selections than anything I've ever been privy to. But my favorite cooking/foodstuff/coffee destination is Zabar's on Broadway. There may be debate among Upper West Siders about which ranks higher-the infamously crowded Fairway or the space-challenged Zabar's-but I'm just partial to the cheap & chic housewares collection beautifully displayed on Zabar's second floor. Here is a photo homage to the grand design of it all.
