And a few honorable mentions… I’m a huge fan of the beautiful markets of Agata & Valentina on the Upper East Side, Citarella which are located throughout town in various neighborhoods, Dean & Deluca, Marche Madison and of course, The Plaza Food Hall… all of these markets are full of fun, fresh gluten-free fare that I love.. .everything from fish to vegetables and chicken to fruits… I simply love walking the aisles of these stores. They make me smile, whether I purchase a $10 meatball or a $5 cup o’ tea… it’s worth the experience.
