I really miss Fairway. We used to do a lot of our grocery shopping there when we lived in Manhattan. My favorite is their olive bar - especially the baby mushrooms. Of course during "peak hours" the store is nearly impossible to navigate, but Manhattanites are quite used to that. The fish and meats are always super fresh, and the produce section is great. They also have a great selection of specialty foods and a health and bulk section upstairs. This place is truly an upper west side institution. Check out the photos on the wall as you go though the checkout. Just don't expect a lot of sales here!
