Upper East Side
1299 Second Avenue
at E. 68th St.
Full-service market with good selections in produce, grocery items, meat and fish, cheese, bread and bakery. Can be pricey but the quality is very good. After decades at a Third Avenue location, the store moved in the fall of 2014 to its Second Avenue home. But it's still an Upper East Side institution.
What to know:
They have a very large selection of high quality prepared foods, from salads to meatballs to sushi.
