One of the places I loved to grocery shop at in New York, was the Fairway supermarkets.
Back in 2002, when I spent 3 months in Manhattan, even though I lived on 40th St & 8th Ave, I went all the way to the Upper West Side (Broadway and 74th St) to shop at Fairway. The supermarket eventually opened other stores in and outside New York (New York State and New Jersey – lucky you!).
It is a Gourmet Grocery chain (for those who know Paris, something that more or less resembles La Grande Epicerie de Paris) so most everything is more expensive than elsewhere, but you find very original products too, including French products. Everything is top quality and fresh.
